My Medicaid Matters! Rally

When: Wednesday, September 21, 2011
Where: Los Angleles, CA

I don’t need to tell you how important Medicaid is to people with disabilities, seniors, homecare workers, and our communities.  It is the main source of funding for long term care for millions of seniors and people with disabilities including the thousands who receive In Home Supportive Services in CA.  Medicaid will be addressed by the Super Committee in DC and we need to say to our Members of Congress and Senators Feinstein and Boxer, and the President: “Medicaid Matters” so leave Medicaid alone! If they block grant Medicaid, thousands of homecare consumers and low income people who depend on Medicaid for their health insurance will lose their health and homecare services.  I hope to see you at the rally.


WHEN: Wednesday, September 21 at Noon

WHERE: LA Governor’s Office, 300 S. Spring St.

WHY: Medicaid is being considered for substantial cuts and block granting by Congress and the Super Committee.

On September 21 more than 1,000 people with disabilities will gather in WASHINGTON, DC to say NO to these cuts! (Sponsored by NCIL, AAPD and ADAPT) In solidarity with our brothers and sisters with disabilities. Let us show the country that people from coast-to-coast are saying MY MEDICAID MATTERS!
