The White House and Republicans in Congress want to slash Medicaid by $370 Billion while cutting taxes for the wealthy, drug companies and insurance companies by over $600 Billion! 6.5 million New Yorkers- 1/3rd of our people- get their health care through Medicaid, for the doctor or hospital, home care, nursing home care and more. Medicaid funds help community hospitals, health centers and other providers to take care of us all. Join us to hear the details, voice your opinion and join the coalition to FIGHT BACK!
