Together Baton Rouge
Arguing that Louisiana would be big loser in Senate swap of health coverage for tax cuts, Together Baton Rouge leaders circulated a video featuring one of Senator Cassidy's constituents.  
 
April Blackburn voted for Bill Cassidy for his 2014 US Senate race. She met Senator Cassidy in person earlier in the year, where he assured her that he only would support a health bill if it assured that "families like hers would be taken care of" and would not "fall through the cracks."

Nevada Faith Leaders: Don't Cut Medicaid

Friday, June 23, 2017
Nevada Independent
As leaders of the interfaith community and Nevadans for the Common Good, we understand “true worship is to work for justice and care for the poor and oppressed” (Isaiah 58: 5-7).
 
For this reason, we are deeply concerned about how proposed cuts to Medicaid would affect the most vulnerable in our community. Medicaid provides life sustaining health care for more than 600,000 Nevadans, including children, pregnant women, the elderly, veterans, the working poor, and persons with disabilities.

NCG Fights Off Push for Privatization of Medicaid Services in Nevada

Saturday, June 6, 2015
Las Vegas Review Journal

Leaders of Nevadans for the Common Good cried 'foul' when a dead bill proposing to privatize the provision of Medicaid services was kept alive through unnatural means.  Though voted down, it remained in the Assembly Ways and Means Committee through an exemption sparing it from normal deadlines.  That same language was then grafted onto a separate bill (SB 514) and approved by the legislature the day before it adjourned.
