Idaho’s Department of Health and Welfare is taking public testimony on the first of many Medicaid Expansion restrictions to coverage. The 1332 "waiver" is designed to keep thousands of Idahoans who earn between 100-138 of the Federal Poverty Level on private insurance instead of Medicaid Expansion. Those private plans are less reliable, less comprehensive and MORE expensive than Medicaid Expansion. A Federal Judge struck down restrictions in two other states based in part on citizens’ overwhelming opposition to impediments to coverage. We NEED you to show up and speak against this 1332 "waiver."
Town Hall Events
In the upcoming months, we will be organizing issue-focused Town Hall Events. These events will be modeled on the successful event we recently held in Senator Scott Grow’s district following introduction of his Initiative Restriction bill. These events will focus on either the Medicaid issue, the initiative issue, or both, and will highlight the deeply unpopular stances taken by the district’s legislative representative(s).

Door Knocking Events
Prior to each Town Hall Event, we will knock on doors in the district, engage with local voters about the issues and the way their representatives have voted, and invite them to the upcoming local event. The ultimate goals of each Town Hall Event will be
1. Inform voters about the unpopular positions taken by their representatives. 2. Generate earned media coverage of our accountability campaign. 3. Recruit candidates and new volunteers.
