Harrisonburg Indivisible is looking for others to join them in this action in support of Medicaid expansion:

*** Action alert – April 3 & 4 ***

In response to the failure of the Republican AHCA bill and Speaker Ryan’s admission that Obamacare will remain “the law of the land,” Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe is calling on the Virginia General Assembly to approve his proposed budget amendment to bring Medicaid expansion to Virginia. The House of Delegates meets on April 5th. Please call your representatives in both the Virginia House of Delegates and the Virginia Senate on Monday (April 3rd) or Tuesday (April 4th) to tell them that it time to move past partisan politics and obstructionism and support Medicaid expansion as proposed by Governor McAuliffe!

You can find contact details for your State Delegate and State Senator by entering your address here:

Here’s your script:

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m from [CITY, ZIP]. I’m calling to ask [REPRESENTATIVE’S NAME] to support the governor’s call to expand Medicaid in Virginia. The failure to expand Medicaid has already cost Virginians $10.4 billion in federal tax dollars and has unnecessarily left 400,000 hardworking Virginians without healthcare. Expanding Medicaid would also cost the state nothing, since the Federal government will pay 90% of the cost and Virginia state hospitals have already offered to pay the rest of the bill. Please stop blocking Medicaid expansion for your constituents! [Please ask if they need your full street address to ensure your call is tallied.]
