In just a few short weeks, Republicans in Congress will release their proposed budget, and they've been clear on what it will contain: tax breaks for giant corporations and major cuts to health care programs like Medicaid.

But what Republican leaders don't seem to realize is that Medicaid isn't just a line item in the budget, it's a vital lifeline for seniors, kids, families, and workers. So maybe that's the problem: Maybe when Republican leaders talk about cutting Medicaid, they just don't understand what Medicaid is.

You can help them understand. Sign this petition to tell Republicans in Congress that Medicaid is vital. Make sure they understand that when they talk about cuts to Medicaid, they're talking about cuts that will hurt American families.

Medicaid is:
