Save Medicaid in Michigan! With Debbie Dingell

Date: 
Mon, Oct 16, 2017 - 12:30pm to 1:30pm

City:

Come join a panel discussion and press conference with Rep. Debbie Dingell, State. Rep. Ronnie Peterson, and Councilman Peter Murdock on the potentially devastating cuts coming from Trump's proposed budget.

The proposed federal budget seeks to cut $700 billion from Medicaid. This will devastate seniors, disabled adults, children, and low income workers who depend on Medicaid.

64% of seniors in nursing homes rely on Medicaid

50% of all births in the US covered by Medicaid.

Organizations such as the Community Alliance in Ypsilanti depend on Medicaid to serve populations of developmentally disabled adults.

In addition, the Michigan medicaid expansion is in danger of being cancelled, which could cut off 600,000 Michiganders.

Raise awareness, and sound the alarm-- now is the time!!
