Women Who Depend On Medicaid -- Did You Vote For Trump and for Republicans?

This eye-opening report paints a very bleak picture for American women, many of whom depend on Medicaid for their medical care. Trump and Republicans simply don't care about you though. That much is quite apparent. Women are now up in arms about this nationwide! Trump is already claiming victory while shutting the door to your Medicaid services and needs and throwing you under the bus.

Remember, Hillary Clinton would never have done this to you nor allowed for such Critical CUTS to Medicaid. That is not the Democratic way. She would have helped you to retain your Medicaid and other important services and benefits.

The GOP's proposed Medicaid cuts could leave millions of women uninsured - ABC News
By PRIYA RAJA

"Today, more than 17 million women in the U.S. aged 18 to 64 have health insurance because of Medicaid, according to data from the National Women’s Law Center. Nearly a fourth of these women gained access to health insurance for the first time as a result of Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) that passed in 2010."
“Medicaid is a critical lifeline to health care services,” said Alina Salganicoff, vice president and director of women's health policy at the Kaiser Family Foundation. “Now, nearly one in five women have Medicaid coverage and anything you do to change Medicaid will impact women in this country, especially the women who have the fewest resources to get care.”
“When Medicaid gets cut, the people that are hurt the most are women,” she said. “Women who are heads of households, single mothers. People who are struggling to make ends meet, they lose insurance coverage and risk not being healthy enough to work and not being able to maintain their health well enough to care for their families.”
