Tell Greg Abbott: Expand Medicaid Now
Today is the day to write to Governor Abbott and ask him to expand Medicaid to all eligible Texans. We are in the midst of an unprecedented public health crisis, but millions of Texans don’t have access to life-saving health care because they are uninsured. Without insurance, our fellow Texans who are stocking grocery shelves, preparing takeout food, working the counter at our local drugstores, and providing home health care to the elderly and people with illnesses and disability — among many others — will not be able to afford the care they need, and may even delay diagnosis. This puts uninsured Texans, their families and our entire community at risk.
