Arizona: Call your Governor and tell him to Oppose Graham-Cassidy
Governors won’t be casting any votes in the Senate, but they will be key in stopping TrumpCare. Governors have a lot of influence over the senators from their state, and so they need to hear from you, too. The thing that governors care the most about is their state budgets, and Graham-Cassidy decimates most of them. Call your governor and demand that they publicly oppose Graham-Cassidy, before it’s too late. Below is a sample message for them.
Caller: I want Governor Ducey to oppose Graham-Cassidy. The bill is just like other TrumpCare bills in that it destroys Medicaid as we know it by turning Medicaid into a capped system. This hurts children with disabilities, seniors, and even victims of natural disasters like Harvey and Irma. It also takes away funding to help people afford health insurance through the marketplace. Our state would lose $1.6 billion in federal funding because of this bill. Too many Arizonans experienced a crisis when the state froze its Medicaid program in 2011 due to funding cuts. We cannot repeat that. Will Governor Ducey publicly oppose Graham-Cassidy?
