Tell Senator Portman to Protect Medicaid!
Senator Portman says that he prioritizes protecting Medicaid for those receiving opioid addiction treatment, children, the elderly, and the people currently covered by Medicaid expansion. However, he also supports structural changes to Medicaid, including instituting a “per capita cap.” Such a cap would dismantle the program and shift billions of dollars of healthcare costs to states, leading to rationing care, weaker benefits, and even causing some to lose healthcare.
Sign this petition and tell Senator Portman to oppose any legislation that dismantles Medicaid! We need your signature by Wednesday, June 14. The signed letter will be delivered to Senator Portman’s offices in Ohio and in Washington D.C.
