Washington, DC – The Arc released the following statement as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell pulls the Better Care Reconciliation Act, and announces an upcoming vote on a repeal of the Affordable Care Act without an immediate replacement:

“Make no mistake – the Medicaid program and the home and community based supports that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities rely on to live independent lives were on the brink of destruction. As the disability community battled against this effort over the last several months, we have shown our strength, our power, and I thank each and every advocate who has stepped up in this fight.

“This is not over. As Senate Majority Leader McConnell considers his next steps regarding repeal of the Affordable Care Act, we are reminded of the 2015 plan to repeal and not replace the Affordable Care Act. The Congressional Budget Office analysis showed that under that proposal, by 2026, 32 million people would lose health insurance and premiums would double.

“We know there will be further threats in the future, which is why we remain vigilant in our advocacy efforts. Congress is already doubling down on slashing the Medicaid program – today, the House unveiled its budget resolution that includes sweeping changes to Medicaid, Social Security, and Medicare.

“This is going to be a long road, but one that people with disabilities, their family members, support staff, and friends will navigate together. We must unite and reject cuts that will take away the dignity and independence of people with disabilities. This is the civil rights fight of our time, and we will remain vigilant to protect all that has been built to ensure the inclusion and equality of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in our society,” said Peter Berns, CEO, The Arc.
