I need you with me on Tuesday afternoon! And this is no April fools joke!!
Well, if you’ve been reading the papers or any blogs about the General Assembly lately, you know that your Delegate and Senator left without finalizing either the 2014-16 Budget OR the decision about whether Virginia would provide health insurance for the population of Virginians that live between Medicaid and the federal insurance exchanges now available.
The House has been presented with a couple of different options — ways to provide insurance for that Gap of our population — for people too rich for our current Medicaid plan and too poor for the federal health exchange insurance – and the House Republicans rejected them all.
The Senate wants to hear from YOU.
On Tuesday, April 1st at 2 PM, the Senate Finance Committee members are holding a Public Hearing. That day, they are asking for YOUR input. What should they do?
Should Virginia “Close the Gap“?
Should Virginia accept $2B in federal funding to cover health care?
Is it OK to leave about 400,000 Virginians without either public or private health insurance?
The House Republicans are saying “NO” to each one of those questions, and some of them say that’s what their public want. They are wrong!
Is that what YOU want?
