Rapid Response to Medicaid and Medicare Cuts

  • 1800 Thibodo Road, #310 Vista, CA 92081 (map)

Although repeal of the Affordable Care Act has failed, Republicans in Congress will once again try to dismantle the ACA and Medicaid as part of the House Budget Resolution that Republican Speaker Paul Ryan will bring to a floor vote this week. 

Constituents of California’s 49th Congressional District are responding with a day of action on Thursday, Oct. 4 led by Fight4OurHealth against this latest Republican effort to strip health care from millions of Americans. Constituents will gather outside Darrell Issa’s district office for a protest that urges Rep. Darrell Issa to reject proposals that will gut life-saving Medicaid for 74 million working families, privatize Medicare for seniors, and starve state budgets to pay for tax breaks for big corporations and the rich. 

Rep. Darrell Issa voted to support Republican-led bills to repeal the Affordable Care Act and radically restructure Medicaid. This week, He will vote on a federal budget resolution that cuts $1.5 trillion from Medicaid and other healthcare programs, includes adoption of the ACA repeal bill passed by Republican House members earlier this year, and proposes a $487 billion cut to Medicare for seniors. The bill also includes billions in tax breaks for wealthy households and large corporations.

Constituents will call on Rep. Darrell Issa to reject these massive cuts to healthcare and tax giveaways to the rich and corporations paid for with cuts to Medicaid, Medicare, and other services in the federal budget.

Join Fight4OurHealth as we protest the GOP budget that will GUT Medicare and Medicaid. We will let Rep. Issa know that HIS constituents depend on Medicare and Medicaid, and any cuts to these programs signals that he is not fit to lead his district.
