Have you ever written a love poem? Was it an ode to Medicaid?
Here’s a thoughtful and elegiac social media post from one of our wonderful legal advocates, Marina Kurakin.
I Medicaid. I want to hug it and squeeze it for keeping me alive as a kid.
I want to celebrate it for protecting so many of my clients, friends, and neighbors as they face illness and good health.
I want to dance with it for providing home services for senior citizens and people living with disabilities, allowing them to live at home and on their own terms- instead of institutions.
If you’ve ever been in a situation where you couldn’t afford your own medical care, you get it.
Please call your Senators: https://www.callmycongress.com. Tell them your story. Vote NO on Medicaid cuts. Vote NO on the Better Care Reconciliation Act.
I want Medicaid to be there for you in your time of need.
Be like Marina.
