URGENT ACTION ALERT: Call Now to Stop Medicaid Cuts – Congress Is Moving Fast

Congress is on the fast track to make drastic cuts to the Medicaid program. The level of cuts over time would decimate the Medicaid program.  

When will this happen? IT IS HAPPENING NOW. The House of Representatives is moving quickly to push the bill through Committee and vote by the end of March.  The Senate is planning to vote on the House bill before the mid-April recess

People’s health, services and lives are at stake! We urgently need you to reach out to your Senators and Congressmen. Tell them to stop the cuts to Medicaid.  We need you to explain why Medicaid is essential to people with disabilities and their families. 

Go to The Arc TN Public Policy Page for more details.
