A new bill that is essential for people with disabilities, their families, and the direct support professional workforce, called the Better Care Better Jobs Act, is moving through Congress. This critical bill includes a long overdue $400 billion for Medicaid, which supports people with disabilities to do things like get dressed, take care of their families, work, and participate in their communities.
We need a big investment to make this system work for everyone who needs it. Too many people are stuck on waiting lists, relying on unpaid caregivers, or forced to live in institutions. The $400 billion investment in Medicaid proposed in the Better Care Better Jobs Act is already long overdue!
