Please join advocates across California in a VIRTUAL LOBBY DAY today to call on Governor Brown to move forward with the fastest and fullest implementation of the Medi-Cal Expansion possible. We need your help today to lobby the Governor -and you can join us from the comfort of your computer, smartphone, or tablet!
The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) allows the state to expand Medi-Cal to over ONE MILLION uninsured Californians starting on January 1, 2014. But in order to open the doors on January 1st, the state must get to work NOW. We need your help sending a message (tweet, email, or facebook) to the Governor that those in our communities that need healthcare cannot afford delay, and our state cannot afford to leave federal dollars on the table!
EMAIL THE GOVERNOR
You can email the Governor on his website: http://govnews.ca.gov/gov39mail/mail.php
Tell the Governor that:
- We can’t afford to wait any longer to expand Medi-Cal
- The expansion is 100% federally funded for the first 3 years
- We need to ensure access to care for those who are left out of Obamacare
- Why this is important to you!
TWEET THE GOVERNOR
