The Maine legislature has an opportunity to pass the legislation in this current session. But, the legislation needs to pass and sustain a likely veto from Governor LePage who has stymied five previous attempts by the Legislature to expand Medicaid. If the Legislature is unable to override a veto, Mainers for Health Care will bring the important question of Medicaid expansion to the voters in November 2017.
Here’s Where You Come In!
During these uncertain times, it is more important than ever that we stand together, united for more affordable health care, not less! Together, we can do this.
Contact your local legislators and let them know that you are counting on them to pass Medicaid expansion.
Are you willing to share your health insurance story?
• Are you uninsured and unable to afford health insurance?
• Are you someone who could benefit from expanding access to affordable coverage?
• Do you know someone who needs health care but can’t get it because they can’t afford it?
