Today, we have terrific news to share!
We are very excited with Governor Terry McAuliffe’s decision to line-item veto the obstacles in the budget that legislators put in his way regarding Medicaid expansion. His action will help close the coverage gap so that more people can get health insurance in Virginia. And we are absolutely thrilled that the Governor is going to move forward administratively to expand Medicaid!
We will continue to work with the Governor, his staff and others, to find a solution that works for all Virginians, especially the 400,000 Virginians who will be directly affected by Medicaid expansion.
As a supporter of Medicaid expansion, will you take a few minutes to call Governor McAuliffe to thank him for making this bold move? He can be reached at (804) 786-2211.
Thank you for taking action and showing your support for Virginians! Virginia Organizing will continue to keep you updated as more information becomes available.
