Sarah Metsch is not afraid. She’s fired up.
As the U.S. Senate considers yet another bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act and cut Medicaid, Americans who depend on Medicaid in-home services to get through their daily lives are speaking out. Earlier this year, a group of brave protesters with disabilities occupied the offices of Sen. Cory Gardner, dramatically calling the nation’s attention to the threat faced by Americans who rely on Medicaid services.
The latest “Graham-Cassidy” legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act would reduce federal support for Medicaid overall, phase out Medicaid expansion funding completely by 2027, and cost the state of Colorado alone $6 billion in reduced Medicaid funds. The bill would leave states with the burden of providing for Medicaid populations with reduced funding relative to current law. Colorado, a state with heavy constitutional restrictions on revenue growth and spending, would be hard-pressed to make up the difference.
Take a moment to listen to and share Sarah’s story. Then Call Sen. Cory Gardner at (202)224-5941, and tell him to REJECT Graham-Cassidy–and any other health plan that cuts Medicaid.
