2015 Missouri ProVote Program Highlights
ProVote will continue to be an important leader and partner in the fight to protect Medicaid and Medicare. ProVote will continue to advocate for Medicaid expansion through our work with the Missouri Medicaid Coalition. We will also continue our National working to strengthen Medicare through negotiating prescription drug pricing, and affordable health care for every Missourian.
Health coverage for nearly 38,000 Missouri children is in danger unless Congress acts soon. Please take action now!
The Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) covers children in working families who don’t have access to coverage through their parents’ employer. Over 8 million American children get their health coverage through CHIP.
Together with Medicaid, CHIP has helped to cut the rate of uninsured kids in half. It is an economic lifeline that delivers peace of mind for millions of working families.
Funding for CHIP is set to expire this September, and Congress has not yet voted to extend it. Please urge your member of Congress to take action as soon as possible to protect CHIP. Our elected officials need to know that Missourians support CHIP and health coverage for children. You can contact them by clicking HERE!
Since the first part of 2013, Missouri ProVote has had the opportunity to join with our coalition partners to push for and pass comprehensive immigration reform that features a path to citizenship for 11 million residents in our country. ProVote has continued to work with immigrant communities along with non-immigrant families as we advocate for long-overdue action on this critical issue.
Fair Taxes, Not Cuts!
We start the year with round two of the budget showdown. Missouri ProVote will continue to work with coalition partners to achieve the federal budget we need through increased revenue from corporate tax dodgers and the top 1%. Revenue must be raised, but cutting vital social programs like Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security is simply not an option! ProVote will promoe voter awareness and civic engagement as we stand against corporate tax loopholes that force hard working Americans to shoulder the burden of nearly $300 billion in taxes that goes unpaid.
End Wasteful Pentagon Spending
ProVote will engage in a coalition effort to focus on the long-overdue Pentagon budget cuts. Experts across the political spectrum agree that $500 billion to $1 trillion could be cut without any reduction in military readiness. Ending wasteful Pentagon spending must take priority over cutting critical social programs.
ProVote will continue to fight to protect programs like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid and make sure that all of our electeds know that the budget can not be balanced on cuts alone, and that raising revenue must be part of the solution.
