A Cost Too High: The Financial Harm of the Republican Plan to Eliminate Health Care
The Republican-led Congress has launched a rapid process of eliminating health coverage for 184,000 residents of West Virginia by repealing the Affordable Care Act (ACA). These cuts will severely reduce income to health facilities and result in lost jobs across sectors. The cuts also will come at severe cost to the state budget.

Capital Eye, January 2017
Most of us seem relieved that 2016 is finally over. The last legislative session was rough, then the primary elections were followed by June’s 1,000 year flood, and we capped off the year by electing ‘the Apprentice’ for president. 2017 will be even more challenging. Are you ready? We are - with your input and support!
