Governor Cuomo’s administration will propose up to an additional $10 billion worth of cuts to Medicaid and other critical health and human services in the coming days, right as New Yorkers are grappling with the devastation of the COVID-19 pandemic. These cuts will disproportionately impact the same vulnerable New Yorkers most impacted by the pandemic.
Join the Protect Medicaid Campaign to send a strong, unified message urging #NoMoreCuts to vital services during this time of crisis - RSVP to receive the #NoMoreCuts Social Media Toolkit to #ProtectMedicaid #CancelCuomosCuts to show the legislature we demand that they raise revenues to balance the budget, NOT cut even more services to our most vulnerable. The livelihoods of millions of New Yorkers are on the line. #MakeBillionairesPay
