Voices for Utah Children Statement on the 'Better Care Reconcilation Act'

22 June 2017 Published in What's New?

Voices for Utah Children opposes the Senate’s version of the G.O.P. health care bill, now called the ‘Better Care Reconciliation Act’, with its massive cuts to Medicaid. The bill’s devastating cuts and changes to Medicaid will undermine the health and well-being of Utah children. The unprecedented Medicaid cuts and changes will cause lasting damage to the Medicaid program and children’s coverage overall. We have made historic progress for Utah children’s care and coverage; these cuts will undo and reverse these gains. We call on our Senators to reject this dangerous bill. We urge them to protect coverage and care for all Utah children, instead of putting them at greater risk.


For 30 years now, Voices for Utah Children has called on our state, federal and local leaders to put children’s needs first. But the work is not done. The children of 30 years ago now have children of their own. Too many of these children are growing up in poverty, without access to healthcare or quality educational opportunities.
