And that's a lesson that Louisiana lawmakers should take to heart, even if the Senate health care proposal dies a well-deserved death. A recent NPR/PBS poll found that only 17 percent of Americans approve of this bill.

"It's important that we share stories about what Medicaid really does", Kaine said before convening a roundtable discussion with parents of children with disabilities and health-care providers on Northern Virginia Community College's Medical Education campus. Citing estimates that the proposal would cut more than $14 billion in Medicaid funds for OH and end insurance coverage for more than 700,000 Ohioans, they said "Medicaid in its current form can better meet this need for your constituents".

These cuts would be backbreaking for California's finances, forcing extremely hard choices. And Bell doubts Moran can be bought off with more money for his state, such as a more generous Medicaid payment growth formula for non-expansion states such as Kansas.

But the Medicaid rule also has contributed to a severe shortage of psychiatric beds for people in crisis, said John Snook, executive director of the Treatment Advocacy Center, a nonprofit that focuses on people with serious mental illness. The top 1 percent of Americans by this measure live an average of nearly 15 years longer than the bottom 1 percent, according to a study of tax and death records published last year in JAMA. They would inevitably need to reduce services and consolidate locations where care is provided. The Senate, so far, has spent none, and is planning to vote on the bill as soon as the leaders have enough votes to pass it. But it was a young woman named Meredith who put a human face on the dangers being raised by Medicaid cuts.

Pennsylvanians should let know Toomey of their opposition to this bill through letters, emails, phone calls and in person at town hall events.
