Governor LePage: Accept Federal Medicaid Funds

To be delivered to The Maine State House, The Maine State Senate, and Governor Paul LePage

Petition Statement

Over 10% of Maine residents don't have health insurance, including many children.

By rejecting Medicaid expansion funds from the federal government, you are hurting nearly 70,000 Mainers who would benefit from it.

Please reverse course and accept the federal Medicaid dollars and help Mainers in need.
There are currently 6,427 signatures. NEW goal - We need 7,500 signatures!

Petition Background

UPDATE: A vote on Medicaid expansion could come as early as next week on Tuesday, March 4.

We can override Gov. LePage's expected veto if we get enough legislators on board–and we're close! Please sign this petition and call your state legislators to tell them you want 70,000 Mainers to be able to have access to health care!

-----

Governor Paul LePage has indicated that he may not accept new federal dollars to expand the state's Medicaid program.

By rejecting these funds, nearly 70,000 Mainers will be uninsured.

Tell Governor LePage to reverse course and accept federal Medicaid dollars and protect the 50,000 Mainers that would benefit.
