The House-passed budget would slash Medicaid funding, devastating child health care coverage in many states.

Medicaid helps 28 million children get health care, including doctor visits, vaccinations, oral care and more. For more than 40 years, Medicaid has been vital to helping our neediest children grow, develop, and be healthy and ready to learn.
 
Our country won't grow stronger by allowing our children to get sicker. Instead, now is the time to bolster the protections to make this country great. Let's protect our most important investment: the well-being of our children.

Over half of the children who need Medicaid would be cut by 2021 if this proposed budget is passed. 

Go here to find out how many children in your state would be cut under the House budget proposal.
We can't leave states with so many uninsured children. State budgets are struggling already - cutting Medicaid this drastically would be disastrous, leaving many children in every state with no medical care and no other options.
Tell Congress to vote against any budget proposal that would take away health care for my state's most vulnerable children.
