Your calls are helping protect Medicaid! Let’s keep the progress going!
Call-In day was a success, but senators still need to hear from you!
Yesterday, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released its report on the Senate’s Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA), and estimated that their proposed healthcare overhaul would leave 22 million more people uninsured by 2026. This includes 15 million fewer people receiving coverage as a result of nearly $800 billion in cuts to Medicaid. Medicaid resources are crucial for communities battling homelessness, and these cuts would be devastating to our country’s most vulnerable citizens.
Thank you to everyone who helped by calling your Senator last week during our National Call-In Day to Protect Medicaid! It will only take 3 Senators to reject these cuts, and they still need to hear from you. If you missed the chance to call last week, or have 10 minutes to call again, your voice can make the difference!
Medicaid, and access to affordable healthcare, is essential to the fight against homelessness, and has touched people personally across the country. Help the Alliance tell the story of how access to Medicaid helped you or someone you know exit or prevent homelessness by sharing your story with us. You can send us your name, contact information, a short overview of your story, and a picture to firstname.lastname@example.org. If we are able to share your story in the fight to Protect Medicaid, we will reach out with further questions and details.
