Earlier this year, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to repeal the health care bill known as the Affordable Care Act. In doing so, they voted to cut Medicaid and California’s in-home care program (IHSS) by hundreds of billions of dollars. Together, we successfully stopped the health care repeal bills and protected IHSS and Medicaid from cuts that would harm our clients and loved ones.
But now, Congress is working to pass a federal budget and new health care repeal legislation that would make even worse cuts to Medicaid and home care in California.
We must protect home care and the programs that our clients and loved ones rely on.
Cuts to Medicaid and in-home care will have a devastating impact on the most vulnerable Californians: seniors, children with disabilities like autism and cerebral palsy, veterans with traumatic brain injuries and PTSD, adults with mental health needs, and individuals with Alzheimer’s, MS, and other disorders and disabilities.

Through a state-federal funding partnership, Medicaid has provided vital services to people with disabilities, the elderly, children, families, and pregnant people for the last 50 years. The health care repeal bill, otherwise known as the American Health Care Act (AHCA), would cut hundreds of billions of dollars of federal funding for Medicaid through drastic changes that have devastating impacts.
It’s simple: our lawmakers must VOTE NO on the American Health Care Act and protect California from harmful cuts.
