Your senators need to hear from you today. It is going to be a very tight vote on the Graham-Cassidy bill, so your voice is really needed to #SaveMedicaid. The vote may happen as early as Wednesday, calls are needed today and tomorrow. This healthcare bill significantly cuts and caps Medicaid reimbursements for children and their families in early intervention, preschool special education and school programs. Funding for children is cut 31% in this bill.
ASK YOUR SENATORS TO VOTE NO ON THE GRAHAM-CASSIDY BILL AND ANY BILL OR AMENDMENT THAT CUTS OR CAPS MEDICAID.

Hi, my name is ____ and I’m a constituent. I urge Senator (name) to Vote NO to the Graham-Cassidy Bill. The Graham-Cassidy bill would result in a 15% decrease of traditional Medicaid spending for people with disabilities and a 31% decrease of traditional Medicaid spending for children. Any bill that caps or cuts federal funding for Medicaid threatens vital health care that ensures young children with disabilities have adequate educational and developmental opportunities now so that they can contribute to society in the future. Please work in a bi-partisan fashion to protect and improve the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid.
