Today’s Action: Stop Trump’s Medicaid Denial Scheme

In his latest attempt to snatch health coverage away from working families, Trump has issued guidance to states allowing them to drop Medicaid recipients unless they meet specific work requirements.

Already, Kentucky’s Republican Governor Matt Bevin has implemented this Medicaid denial scheme, which would deny potentially life-saving healthcare to people who don’t meet the requirements.

In Kentucky alone, 95,000 low-income recipients will be dropped within five years…and nine more states are expected to follow Kentucky’s dangerous formula — if we don’t stop them.

Contact your Governor today and demand they reject Trump’s sabotage and continue to make Medicaid available for those who need it. Medicaid is the final safety net for 68 million low-income families, pregnant women, elderly, and people with disabilities who:

  • can’t work due to physical and mental health
  • live in areas of high unemployment
  • are single parents, often with no access to childcare
  • are often employed, but can’t earn enough to rise above poverty levels.

By implementing these new excuses to deny health coverage, Republicans aren’t just setting an arbitrary standard that most are unable to fulfill, they’re passing a malicious and misguided ‘moral’ judgment on 68 million people: that poverty is the fault of the poor.

The truth is, most American families are struggling to do the best they can in a country where the deck is stacked against working people by unfair policies like these.

Tell your Governor not to make it worse! Demand Medicaid remain the safety net it was intended to be and tell them lifesaving healthcare shouldn’t be a just privilege of the wealthy.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition demanding the FBI label the KKK a terrorist organization, and join the Americans demanding Congress protect Dreamers NOW!
