New Navigator polling reveals that voters strongly oppose House Republicans’ plan to take away Medicaid. A striking 85 percent of voters are concerned about the impact of their plan to “take Medicaid away from as many as 21 million people…including kids with disabilities, seniors in assisted living, and pregnant women.” The ‘Default on America Act’ also slashes funding for veterans’ health care, nursing home safety, mental health and substance use services, and more. Not only are these measures widely unpopular, but they threaten the health and well-being of millions of families across the nation. Read more on their disastrous bill here.
