Governor Sam Brownback 
 
Report your call
Dear Kansas MoveOn member,

A new report released by Harvard University found that up to 17,000 people could die this year because GOP lawmakers in 25 states—including Kansas—are blocking the expansion of the popular Medicaid program.

Pressure is mounting. Governor Sam Brownback is one of the Republican governors denying access to affordable health care in his state. But decisions are being made right now, and you can help raise the pressure on Gov. Brownback and save lives in Kansas by calling today.2

Can you call Sam Brownback right now? Tell him: "Accept Medicaid funding under the Affordable Care Act, so thousands in Kansas aren't left without the health care coverage they need."

We need to put your governor on notice—before anyone else dies because they don't have access to health insurance

We can win—and will win! In December, Iowa's Republican governor announced his plan to expand Medicaid. And already this year, even in the deeply conservative state of Utah, the Republican governor has expressed support for expanding Medicaid.3

Phone calls are simple, powerful organizing tools. Elected officials' offices take note of these calls, especially when many constituents are calling on the same issue. This call-in day is critical to building pressure to expand Medicaid and save lives. 

Can you call Sam Brownback right now? Tell him: "Accept Medicaid funding under the Affordable Care Act, so thousands in Kansas aren't left without the health care coverage they need."
