Senator Cantwell focused on the harm the bill would do to Medicaid, especially children. Two patient stories were shared — a mom spoke of her 7-year old child who has a rare disorder and a woman who is a 4 time survivor of different cancers.
Our state is fortunate to have Senators Maria Cantwell and Patty Murray lead the fight for affordable, quality health care. We all need to contact our friends, families and networks in other states, especially Alaska, to contact their own US Senators to defeat the Graham Cassidy proposal and to focus on bipartisan solutions to stabilize community health centers before our funding expires on September 30.
