And, while we are at it, maybe make a few phone calls about the lack of respect of the rule of law and human life? #159HealthCare

#159CalltoAction: Make Your Health Care Calls Re Rural Communities

Medicaid cuts would be a disaster for the rural health care system. Georgia has seen six rural hospitals close since 2010, the third highest rate in the country. For those that survive, nearly two thirds of rural hospitals revenues are from Medicare or Medicaid. Any cuts to those programs will kill hospitals that are already losing money. #159SaveRuralHospitals #159NotoTrumpCare #159SavetheACA #159SaveMedicaid
