House Votes are Happening Today, Nov.10, 2005!!!
November 10, 2005
Dear Medicaid Advocate:
IT IS NOT TOO LATE TO CALL THE HOUSE!!
* Keep the pressure on-call your members of Congress again TODAY and oppose the cuts to Medicaid.
* Yesterday you may have received alerts indicating that we had lost-but the Republicans are bluffing. They do not have the votes and your calls are still very important.
* The key message remains: Vote no on the House budget bill. It would impose deep cuts in Medicaid eligibility, benefits and out-of-pocket costs that will deny health coverage and affordable care to children, people with disabilities and seniors. The House budget will hurt millions of Americans and increase the deficit, while rewarding the wealthy few with tax cuts.
Use the toll free number provided by American Friends Service Committee to contact your Representative: 1- 800-426- 8073
* Ask the switchboard to connect you to your Representative.
Addendum: Budget bill withdrawn as of about 4:30 -- the Republican leadership couldn't pass it!
