Sign this petition to demand Senate President Berger and House Speaker Moore call an emergency session to expand Medicaid. When more of our neighbors are protected and covered, it protects all of North Carolina. This virus doesn’t stop to ask people if they have a health insurance card or not.
By refusing to expand Medicaid year after year, Senate President Phil Berger and House Speaker Tim Moore have not only caused suffering and economic hardship, they have also left North Carolina vulnerable during the coronavirus pandemic.
Continuously, they have used their positions of power to block the expansion of health coverage to hard working North Carolinians while offering no solutions of their own. Even during “normal” times the consequences of their inaction have led to suffering, deaths, and financial hardships for both patients and the hospitals that serve them. During this public health crisis, the consequences of rejecting Medicaid expansion could be catastrophic which is why we need immediate action.
