National Governors Association Meeting on Medicaid

The next 48 hours are critical for the future of Medicaid and access to health care.

Republican governors are poised to strike a deal on Medicaid during the National Governors Association meeting in Washington, D.C. This deal could threaten vital health care coverage for seniors, kids, people with disabilities, the working poor, and veterans.

It is absolutely critical that Chris Christie hear from YOU that any deal to cut and cap federal Medicaid funding is bad for people and bad for New Jersey. Even worse, we've heard that cuts to Medicaid, which protects our most vulnerable residents, will be used to make up for lost revenue when Congress repeals taxes on millionaires. That's right - they want to cut health care for poor people in order to give millionaires and billionaires a tax cut. Let that sink in - it's disgusting. Chris Christie cannot make this deal, and he can't make it in secret.

Please contact Chris Christie right now and tell him that Medicaid helps New Jersey and that you are opposed to caps and cuts to Medicaid. 

PS - It is now more urgent than ever that you join us on Monday as we rally against cuts to our health care in Trenton. We have to take the fight for our health care to Christie's doorstep. Click here for more information and to RSVP.

If you are calling Governor Christie: 609-292-6000 - they will connect you with an aide if you ask.
Feel free to use the below talking points (or choose your own talking points from this NJPP one-pager):  
  1. I'm calling on the governor to defend the Medicaid expansion, as he used to do, and oppose block-granting Medicaid. 
  2. If the expansion is repealed, 550,000 New Jersey adults will lose coverage and the state will lose $3 billion per year in federal funding. 
  3. If Medicaid is block-granted, hundreds of thousands more will lose coverage over ten years. The state's hospitals will be devastated and its economy damaged.
Stand up for your state's vital interests and your own past good policy decision.
