The House plans to vote on its fiscal year 2018 Budget Resolution on Wednesday, October 4.
Please review the summary of the House Budget Resolution, which includes plans to “reform” Medicaid, cut spending, and enact tax reform.
Passage of the House resolution (H.Con.Res.71) would set up a conference with the Senate on its budget blueprint. The House and Senate could quickly adopt a joint budget resolution to pave the way for legislation that can be passed by a simple majority (51) vote in the Senate.
Please contact your representatives today and tell them you OPPOSE the House Budget Resolution.

Today, July 21st, is a National Call-In Day to #ProtectOurCare.
From our friends over at West Virginians for Affordable Health Care:
The Senate’s quest to repeal health care for millions of Americans and make disastrous cuts to Medicaid is not over. Senators and administration officials met last night to continue negotiations on their harmful bill.
Senate Majority Leader McConnell aims to vote on the “Motion to Proceed” to move forward with health care repeal as soon as Monday.
Please urge your networks to contact their senators and tell them to oppose any attempts to rip health coverage away from millions and to undermine the Medicaid program.
The Senate’s efforts to repeal health care will destroy Medicaid for our country’s most vulnerable people and strip coverage from millions. These harmful proposals cannot be fixed with added sweeteners, try as Senate Republican leaders might.
Tell your senators to VOTE NO on the motion to proceed and to reject any effort to repeal the health law.
Please share this alert with your networks. Together we can save health care!
Thank you for your work,
Director of Campaign Strategy, WVAHC
