Petition to stop cuts to Medicaid, Medicare, CHIP and health care coverage for people with pre-existing conditions

Dear Senators Cornyn and Cruz, and Texas Members of the US House of Representatives,

  • Whereas there are 4 million Texans with disabilities, and
  • Whereas over 2.8 million Texans are already over age 65, and
  • Whereas there are almost 3 million Texans on Medicaid, many of whom are children, and
  • Whereas 16% of Texans are on Medicaid and 11% on Medicare,
  • And whereas Texas already has the highest uninsured population in the nation,

We the undersigned urge you to oppose any cuts or caps to Medicaid and Medicare funding and eligibility, to oppose block granting these critical programs, to oppose watering down coverage for people with pre-existing conditions, and to hurry and fully fund the Children’s Health Insurance Program, CHIP.

 

Name                 ______     Address                                     ________City                  Zip
