Pass the Community First Choice Amendment!


This is huge news! New York Senator Schumer introduced the Community First Choice amendment to the Senate Finance Committee's health care reform! The next step is to urge the Committee to pass the amendment.

Go to http://capwiz.com

Now, we need to call on our friends and family across the country to contact their Senator on the Senate Finance Committee and urge them to support the amendment. Have a friend in Kentucky? An aunt in Florida? Have them call their senator TODAY and say:

"I am calling because NY Senator Schumer just introduced the Community First Choice amendment to the health care bill and I want my Senator [name] to help pass this amendment! Everyone should have a choice to get home care and not be stuck in a nursing facility."

The amendment would give states increased federal Medicaid matching funds for providing attendant services and supports as an alternative to nursing facilities and institutions.

Below is a list of all of the Senate Finance Committee members and their D.C. phone number. (If the Senator is already a co-sponsor of CCA-as noted below-then they should be the first to support this amendment!)
