I wonder if anyone did this below action. If you did.. GREAT! If you would like help with the second part that says, “Send a Letter to the Editor to the Wall Street Journal or Washington Post“. Please let me know. I would be happy to assist you on that.

Thank you,

Subject: NDLA Action Alert: Urge the President, Congress and the Public to Support Medicaid!

As we approach the 21st Anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the President and Congress continue to negotiate federal Medicaid cuts that would literally undercut our freedom. It’s imperative that we let them – and the public – know that Medicaid is important to us, that it provides vital home and community-based services and that we can save money by shifting away from expensive institutional placement toward these services.

1. Take less than three minutes to send a message to the White House and Congress. Go to this website to TAKE ACTION:


2. Send a Letter to the Editor to the Wall Street Journal or Washington Post.

Tell their readers that we need REAL Medicaid reform, not arbitrary Medicaid cuts! Letters should be less than 200 words. Include your name, home address, email address, and day/evening phone numbers. With the 21st anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act, now is the perfect time to highlight that Medicaid services support our freedom and independence. USE YOUR PRIVATE/NON-WORK EMAIL!

Wall Street Journal Letters to the Editor should be sent to: ws******@ws*.com

Washington Post Letters to the Editor should be sent to: le*****@wa******.com
