**
Your URGENT ATTENTION IS NEEDED- Raise the cigarette tax NOW to save health care**

 

Friends,

Health care in Oklahoma is on life support, and time is running out. The clear solution is to rebalance Medicaid and raise the cigarette tax by $1.50 per pack.

Legislators have only about two weeks to avert the crisis before catastrophic medical provider rate cuts become inevitable.

If the proposed 25 percent provider rate cuts kick in:

  • 4 out of 5 Oklahoma hospitals will not deliver babies.
  • 9 out of 10 Oklahoma nursing homes will be forced to shut down.
  • More than a dozen Oklahoma hospitals will close within one year.

We cannot let this disaster happen. Recent polling reveals 74 percent of Oklahomans support raising the cigarette tax, which will provide critical state funding for Medicaid, improve health outcomes and save the state money.

It is crucial that the Legislature hear from all of us!  Contact your legislators TODAY and tell them to VOTE to raise the cigarette tax NOW. Click this link to find your legislator and call (800) 522-8502.

It’s crunch time. We need your help to save health care in Oklahoma. Together, we must make Oklahoma better, before it is too late.
