Take Action for Children

Children and Families Deserve Health Care

We need your help protecting the health care of millions of children in the U.S.

According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, Medicaid covers nearly 40% of all children in the U.S., 76% of children from low-income households, and 60% of all children with disabilities. It also covers about half of all births in the country.

The new version of the bill would also:

  • end Medicaid expansion,
  • end the protections for patients with pre-existing conditions, and
  • eliminate the federal protections on mandatory care for maternal and mental health.

Ask your Senator to oppose this legislation and protect children and families in need.
