Here are just a few photos from our grassroots activists who were at the Supreme Court today’s health care reform ruling…and the craziness that comes with it. It’s an historic day and one America’s seniors in Medicare should celebrate.
We’ve already heralded the preservation of billions of dollars in benefits and countless provisions to cut waste, fraud and abuse that have extended Medicare’s solvency. While we are concerned about the Medicaid restrictions in this ruling, we will now start our work with state legislatures and members of Congress to ensure America doesn’t end up a nation with Red state and Blue state Medicaid programs. We believe all states should adopt this Medicaid expansion, making them Green states using federal healthcare dollars to build an improved Medicaid system for seniors in need.
If you’d like a better idea of what today’s ruling really means for seniors in Medicare and Medicaid here’s a new analysis prepared by the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare and the National Senior Citizens Law Center .
