Red Alert on Healthcare

Sep 21, 2017 by

From Alliance for a Health Kansas:

Just two months ago you helped stop reckless legislation that would have stripped health coverage from millions of Americans.

But a handful of Senators in Washington, intent on taking health care coverage away from millions and remaking Medicaid, have cooked up a new bill.

The latest ACA repeal bill is called “Cassidy-Graham” and — like each of its predecessors — it eliminates patient protections in the insurance market and slashes federal funding for the Medicaid program.

How will it affect Kansas? Here are a few low-lights:

  1. It will end our opportunity to expand KanCare, costing our state billions — much more than we would ever gain under any version of repeal and replace.
  2. It will gut protections for people with pre-existing conditions.
  3. It will cut coverage and services for those who rely on Medicaid — primarily seniors, people with disabilities, and children.
  4. It will result in tens of thousands of Kansans, and millions of Americans, losing their health coverage.

KS Senators Moran & Roberts

Call Senators Jerry Moran and Pat Roberts. Find the office closest to you, tell them to VOTE NO on Cassidy-Graham, and urge them to get back to work on bi-partisan solutions to improve the ACA.

TAKE ACTION NOW!

Full Senate to vote soon on Betsy DeVos for U.S. Secretary of Education.

Senator Jerry Moran has indicated that he will vote for confirmation of Betsy DeVos.  Before he does, call him or email him and tell him the following:

  • Republican Senate colleagues like Alaska’s Lisa Murkowski have indicated that Betsy DeVos will be BAD FOR RURAL SCHOOLS.  Kansas is a largely rural state.
  • Betsy DeVos is unqualified, facing accusations of plagiarism and has misstepped on basic issues like Special Education.
  • Having Betsy DeVos run the U.S. Department of Education would be like appointing a former official from PETA (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals) to run the Kansas Livestock Association.  Her experience and personal agenda are incongruous with the position she is seeking.

Tell Senator Moran to stand with Kansas public schools and to vote NO on Betsy DeVos!

CLICK HERE to contact Senator Moran now! ALSO, call him and leave a message at one of his offices.
