Cortez Masto Files Amendment to Remove Cuts to Medicaid from Trumpcare Bill

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) released the following statement on filing her first official floor amendment as a U.S. Senator, an amendment to the latest Trumpcare bill that will remove all language that proposes cuts to Medicaid: 

“Hundreds of thousands of low-income Nevada families, women, seniors, children, veterans and people with disabilities benefit from the life-saving services that Medicaid provides. This amendment will protect our most vulnerable from callous attempts to take away their health care. I urge my colleagues to support this crucial amendment, and to fight for lives of those who rely on Medicaid to survive and live healthy lives.”
