December 17, 2021

There are still 12 states that have refused to expand Medicaid to low-income adults under the Affordable Care Act. The majority of the over 2 million people who are currently in this “coverage gap” in these states are people of color.

January 11, 2022
Many of us had a pit in our stomach as we watched the arguments last month at the U.S. Supreme Court on the fate of Roe v. Wade.

Omicron is raging & families need support

January 5, 2022
Like many others, my 2022 is off to a rocky start. I am writing this as I scramble to find a COVID-19 test appointment for my feverish two-year-old and my son is home with his school closed.

Families need a lifeline, but just when we need help the most, the U.S. Senate failed to act before the new year to extend the monthly Child Tax Credit payments and pass key policies like paid family and medical leave and child care that would have helped families, businesses, and our economy weather this COVID-19 surge.

Heat or Medical Care?

December 16, 2021
Millions of people enroll in Medicaid every year, but roughly one million are removed because of complex enrollment rules or administrative mix-ups. Research shows that eliminating Medicaid churn would lead to 585,000 more children getting at least one routine checkup, and 174,000 children getting the specialty care they need each year.
