Congress must reject The State Flexibility Act (H.R. 1683/S. 868) which would repeal the federal Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) protections, called the maintenance of effort (MOE) provisions, which would allow states to roll back eligibility and erect new barriers to prevent eligible children from enrolling. Together, Medicaid and CHIP provide critical health services to 38 million children each year, including more than half of all low-income children in the United States.
For the sake of our nation’s children, please help us defeat the State Flexibility Act. Stand up and speak out for these vulnerable children.
For far too long, our nation’s most vulnerable children have been denied the chance for a quality education. Inequities in educational funding, resources and opportunities have placed poor and minority children in low-performing schools with inadequate facilities and ineffective teachers. We must demand that our leaders commit to ensuring quality education for all children.
As reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) nears, tell your Members of Congress to support the educational priorities crucial to our nation’s most vulnerable children.
