UPDATE & ACTION PLAN to STOP Medicaid Expansion in Virginia!

UPDATE AND ACTION

 

  1. Update: Conference committee
  2. Email/phone campaign
  3. Expose McAulliffe tomorrow on his expansion tour
  4. Counter the left on Tuesday

 

The budget conferees have begun their deliberations. They began with a visit from Gov. McAuliffe who promptly said he would not sign a budget without Medicaid expansion. The House members responded that they would not submit a budget with Medicaid expansion. We have a showdown!!

 

The House Republicans are going to be hammered by the press, hospital lobbyists, MoveOn.org, the Governor and any other business that will benefit from billions of your tax dollars.

Our success is highly dependent on our ability to provide support to the House Republicans and their leadership. We have been told on several occasions by members of the House that they need us to demonstrate there are millions of Virginians who do not want the expansion of Obamacare in VA.

Here are the budget conferees. Please contact them OFTEN and tell them NO!

 

Senate:  Colgan, Hanger, Norment, Howell, Saslaw, Watkins

House:  Jones, Cox, Landes, O’Bannon, Greason, Joannou

 

 

EMAIL CAMPAIGN

 

Over the next week it is critical that we be vigilant in contacting all our delegates and senators with the following message:

 

“Protect our healthcare by stopping the expansion of Obamacare.
Please vote for a clean budget –

say no Medicaid expansion!”

Who is my legislator?


 

 

 

Gov. McAuliffe Appearance

 

The Governor will be at the Augusta Hospital in Fisherville

TOMORROW at 2 PM.

We must have people at EVERY “press stop” on his state wide tour.  We must say out loud to the group that he is lying. and quickly note five or six topics on which he is lying.

If you can attend this event, we encourage you to carry signs (they probably won’t be allowed inside) with messages such as:

 

 

Stop expansion of Obamacare!

Protect my health care by saying no to Medicaid Expansion!

Pass a Clean Bill – No Medicaid Expansion!
Feel welcome to use the graphic below.

 

COUNTERING THE LIES:
 

 

1.  Virginia money will NOT go to other states.

2.  Currently Medicaid is 22% of the Virginia Budget

3.   Virginia sends about  $65 Billion to DC and gets back about $136 Billion

4.   Virginia cannot “opt-out” once we are in the Expansion..  :”Hotel California”

5.   FRAUD in present Medicaid must be audited and reduced BEFORE adding any more people.

6.   Expansion Reduces service to the truly needy already on Medicaid

7.   Reduces funds for other Virginia programs – schools, safety, other medical, etc

8.   40 to 60% in the expansion population ALREADY have private health insurance.

9.   Anyone earning less than the 138% above the poverty level is MANDATED to lose their private insurance and go onto Medicaid which is less care.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
