HOUSE RESOLUTION ACTION:

The House Budget Resolution is expected to be voted on this Thursday, October 5,  and it includes directions to Energy and Commerce to cut $20 billion over 10 years from programs in its jurisdiction, which includes Medicaid.

DEFENDING OUR GAINS IN KIDS COVERAGE: The stakes are higher than they’ve ever been. The Senate is excepted to vote on their latest proposal to repeal The Affordable Care Act (ACA) tonight. Moving the Senate’s “skinny bill” forward is just another step towards taking away coverage from millions of children and families.

Join us and our partners in protecting the historical gains we’ve made in children’s coverage. Thanks to ACA, Medicaid expansion, and CHIP –  today 97% of children in California have coverage. There is a real threat on children’s coverage.  We must come together, #StayLoud and urge our Members of Congress to #KeepKidsCovered. 

                                                                                                                      

RESOURCES: Visit our Resources page for factsheets and other resources that highlight the impact of ACA repeal on children’s coverage in California.
