Advocate Alert! Tell Sen. Moran to Oppose NEW Senate Threat to Medicaid HCBS!
The threat to Medicaid has reared its ugly head in the US Senate once again in the form of the Graham-Cassidy-Heller-Johnson proposal! In short, Graham-Cassidy replaces all of Obamacare and the current Medicaid program with block grants to the states. This would cut regular the Medicaid program massively, including home and community based (HCBS) programs! Right now Senate Republicans are working to whip up the 50 votes they need to cram Graham-Cassidy through under “budget reconciliation rules before the end of the month!
We need to ACT NOW!
We need to ask Senator Jerry Moran to oppose Graham-Cassidy!
Our message is:
Thank you for your past commitment to oppose cuts to Medicaid, especially cuts to HBCS Programs, which are harmful to Kansans. Thank you for demanding that any healthcare reform legislation must go through the “regular order” process, which requires input from both parties and a super majority vote. Because of your commitment to these principles we are confident you will oppose the Graham-Cassidy-Heller-Johnson proposal currently under consideration in the Senate.
Please call or email Senator Moran today and let him know we need him to oppose Graham-Cassidy!
Moran’s DC Office phone number is (202) 224-6521.
