Take Action for Children

Join the Movement

We need your help protecting the health care of nearly 30 million 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 recently released draft legislation from the Senate could result in nearly 30 million children at risk with cuts to Medicaid over the next ten years. The new version of the bill would also:

  • cuts the provision in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) that requires maternal and mental health coverage,
  • ends Medicaid expansion and enacts drastic cuts, and
  • repeals the individual mandate for individuals and employers.

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