We can’t have the Medicaid cuts. Medicaid is the backbone of community living. It pays for services. It gives people with I/DD the healthcare they need. Less Medicaid means more people in institutions, more people quitting work to care for a relative with a disability, and more people going without healthcare. Medicaid cuts and caps would wreck some lives and end others. Rural Georgia would suffer the most. That can’t happen. We can’t let the freedom to live a full life in the community slip away.
You’re the best hope for thousands Americans with disabilities because you can do something about this. It’s time to remind your Senators that they work for you. Tie up their phone lines for as long as it takes. Send letters and emails. Bother them on social media until they block you. Tell them to leave Medicaid alone.
