Tell Your Senators to Extend Medicaid Funding Without Cutting Food Stamp Funding

A minority of Senators are forcing their colleagues to make the impossible choice between slashing Medicaid programs or cutting food stamps for the most vulnerable women and families.

As the Senate prepares to leave for the August recess, the lives of struggling women and families hangs in the balance. With a possible vote taking place as early as tomorrow, this may be our last chance to extend these vital funds to ensure that low-income women and families can receive Medicaid services. But it cannot be done by slashing equally critical funds to the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Programs (SNAP) that put food on the tables of over 40 million Americans.

We do not need to make this impossible and unnecessary choice.

Please pass an extension of Federal Medical Assistance Percentages (FMAP) Funding to states without cutting the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Programs (SNAP).
