Contact Your Representatives about the Budget Reconciliation Package

December 21, 2005

This morning, the Senate passed the Budget Reconciliation package (S 1932) on a 50-50 tie vote, with Vice President Dick Cheney casting the tie-breaking vote, allowing the bill to pass.  S 1932, as passed, allows states to impose co-pays and other cost sharing requirements in their Medicaid programs.  However, because of a last minute procedural "point of order," the bill must now go back to the House for a second vote -- the House had previously passed the bill on December 19.  Thus, the House still has a chance to do the right thing and remove the harmful Medicaid provisions.

Enter your zip code below to access a sample letter for House members who supported budget cuts to Medicaid and a list of representatives to contact now.  If you do not see the box for entering your zip code,    click here.
