This Action Alert Requires Your Immediate Action!
The U.S. Senate Health Care bill is expected to come to a vote by next Friday, June 30, with NO debate, NO amendments, and NO committee hearings. The bill, which was drafted by just 13 Republican Senators behind closed doors, includes major cuts to Medicaid. Group homes, Supported Employment, Day Services programs, Sheltered Workshop services and many other programs that serve adults with disabilities are paid for with Medicaid dollars. Medicaid dollars pay for IRIS and Managed Care organizations as well. With cuts to Medicaid, you or your loved one could lose their job, their support services, and their home!
This is serious and we are at the critical stage.
It is on all of us who care about services for adults with disabilities to push back and demand that the Senate do its job in public for all to see and reject any health care bill that has not been fully vetted.
Reach out to your Senator(s) and tell them to vote NO.
