Contact your members of Congress today. You can find their contact information here.

  • Medicaid helps cover working Arizonans who don’t get private insurance through their employer. This allows them to stay healthy and productive, which is good for our economy.
  • The increased national deficit due to the recently passed tax plan and budget shouldn’t be used as an excuse to cut Medicaid funding – we must prioritize the health and safety of our fellow Arizonans!
