Today is Day #5 in the Final Countdown to Stop the AHCA and its Cuts to Medicaid.

The U.S. Senate is set to take a vote on the American Health Care Act (AHCA) before July 4. The AHCA contains a devastating 25% cut to Medicaid and eliminates key health care protections for children and adults with disabilities. Cuts to Medicaid mean cuts to 20 Wisconsin programs like Family Care, IRIS, the Children’s waiver, BadgerCare, mental health programs, Katie Beckett, autism services, personal care, and important therapies like speech, OT and PT.

Time is running out to stop these harmful cuts!

Call Senator Ron Johnson every day for the next 5 business days and tell him the fact of the day about why the AHCA is bad for adults and children with disabilities and older adults.

Our countdown continues today with fact #5. Call Senator Johnson and tell him you are concerned about the AHCA because:

It was drafted behind closed doors and there have been no public hearings on the bill. Senator Johnson is right, this bill is moving too fast and the public should have the chance to weigh in. Medicaid cuts and caps will hurt people with disabilities and older adults and need to be removed from the bill.

Call Senator Johnson’s three offices:

  • DC office: 202–224–5323
  • Oshkosh office: 920–230–7250
  • Milwaukee office: 414–276–7282
