Medicaid Expansion Should Trump Partisan Interests sticky icon

Michigan has a hostage crisis. Medicaid expansion is being held captive. Unlike the Iranian hostage crisis, in which 52 American diplomats were held by foreigners, this time 400,000 Michigan citizens are the victims. That’s how many of our uninsured neighbors would get health care if the expansion passes. Our own Republican State Senators are the perpetrators.

ACTION ALERT: Medicaid Expansion Bill Goes to MI Senate sticky icon

Contact your Michigan Senator today and ask him or her to vote FOR Medicaid expansion. It will cost the state of Michigan nothing. For thousands of poor families it will mean seeing a doctor instead of waiting until a health problem escalates to an emergency.
