VWC members Grace Beninson and Keith Brunner were interviewed today for a WCAX story on the Medicaid cutoffs. The story reads:
“Medicaid coverage is just one piece of expanded pandemic aid that’s coming to an end. Funding for housing, food, telehealth, and other programs will also run out.
Governor Phil Scott says the state is working to avoid Vermonters falling off a benefits cliff, but he adds it’s better to wind down now than during an economic downturn.”
Despite this tone of natural inevitability, the decision by Governor Scott and legislative leadership to cut off essential services for the poor is a moral and political choice. If you think it’s time to move forward together, and not one step back, join us to get involved!
