Action Alert: Tell Congress NO on Cuts to Medicaid!

September 8, 2011

>Action Alert: Tell Congress NO on Cuts to Medicaid!

Medicaid could be a target for deep cuts when the "super committee" begins meeting this week. The "super committee" is the group of Congressional members charged with reducing the federal budget. We need your help to exert pressure now!

  • Millions of Americans, including persons living with HIV/AIDS, rely on Medicaid for their basic health care needs.
  • Devastating cuts will put the health of the most vulnerable populations at risk.
  • Members of Congress are paying close attention to public opinion on this issue as many of them will be up for reelection next year.
  • In a matter of seconds, you can make an impact on this critical issue.
