    • Worse for your health than any Chronic Health Disease you could name.

      The Washington bureaucrats’ have devised a plan which will make you sick!  Yes, that’s right they are pushing their “American Healthcare Plan” again.  Only this time, it really will make you sick.

      The plan will slash Medicaid leaving 180,000 New Mexicans without health insurance.  Quite possibly, at least one of your family members, friends or acquaintances will lose health coverage under this bill.

      Under the new bill, thanks to the folks from the “Freedom Caucus”, there would be no mandate for insurance to fund services for maternal and/or newborn care, or mental health.  Insurance companies would be able to hike rates for people with pre-existing conditions without any restraints.

      It is not a surprise to anyone that more than 40% of New Mexicans are enrolled in Medicaid.  Our hospitals depend on the reimbursements from Medicaid to take care of us and offer the services we need desperately.  Medicaid currently supports an estimated 50,000 jobs in this state.  Imagine what the fallout from that will be on our state economy.  We are not a state with vast resources.

      This new “bill” and all of the associated cuts will also significantly harm our already fragile economy.  One of the largest economic sectors, with among the highest job growth is healthcare.  These cuts to Medicaid will most certainly have a very negative effect and likely cost thousands of New Mexican’s their jobs.  These job cuts will come through actual job losses and the inability to create many others. 

      As a nurse, I encourage my patients’ and their families to engage in “health friendly” and “health supporting” behaviors.  I want everyone to be as healthy and engaged with life as they possibly can which means making choices.  Choices about what to eat, getting exercise, doing those things in life that help you reduce stress and provide balance.

      You have a choice right now that will impact your health, perhaps in ways you don’t even realize.  The choice is whether or not to pick up your phone, your pen, or get in your vehicle and visit Congressman Steve Pearce in one of his New Mexico offices and tell him to vote “NO” on the new TrumpCare bill.

      Congressman Pearce needs to hear your opposition to the new TrumpCare bill from you!

      STOP the Attack on New Mexico’s Healthcare System!
      Ask Congressman Pearce to Vote NO Against the Healthcare Repeal Bill

      Friends,

      Congress is about to make a critical vote on healthcare -- This Thursday, the U.S. House of Representatives plans to vote on the Republican bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act. This bill recklessly endangers New Mexico’s healthcare system by making it even more expensive for middle class and working families to afford private healthcare coverage and by dismantling Medicaid, which covers more than 900,000 New Mexicans.

      -More than 145,000 New Mexicans will lose their healthcare coverage – including 50,900 in Congressman Pearce’s district alone – mostly due to massive cuts to Medicaid, including rolling back the Medicaid Expansion and cutting federal funding support for Medicaid.

      -Thousands of jobs could be lost statewide! Medicaid directly supports over 50,000 jobs in New Mexico while also providing a major payment source for our hospitals, clinics and nursing homes.

      -The bill caps Medicaid funding, which will force our state to ration care or make deep cuts to healthcare coverage for New Mexicans who need it the most – children, the elderly, people with disabilities and low-income adults.

      -The bill takes healthcare away from the poor while giving tax breaks to the rich, providing $275 billion in tax cuts to the wealthiest households over the next ten years.

      Congressman Pearce MUST hear from you TODAY! Please call his D.C. office at (202) 225-2365 and ask him to take a stand to protect our healthcare by voting NO for the healthcare repeal bill. The call will only take a minute.
