Governor Corbett has continually refused the opportunity to cover nearly 700,000 working Pennsylvanians by expanding medicaid.
We need to push him and the rest of state lawmakers to accept federal money which would fully cover Medicaid expansion now, and almost entirely cover it for the future.
It would save taxpayers $800 million a year and create more than 40,000 new jobs.
Most importantly it will save the lives of hundreds of thousands of Pennsylvanians who work hard and still can't afford insurance.
There are lives on the line
Sign the Petition and our friends at Pennsylvania Health Access Network will deliver your message to our elected officials.
"We, the undersigned, call on Governor Corbett and our lawmakers to take advantage of the unprecedented opportunity Pennsylvania has to bring health care coverage to approximately 700,000 Pennsylvanians by expanding our Medicaid program. The new health care law assures the Federal Government will pay the entire costs and then, eventually, the majority of the costs. Expanding Medicaid will save lives and money. It's the right thing to do."
