The Center for Medicare Advocacy is grateful to Democratic leaders and senators for supporting the continuation of the increased federal Medicaid match. “We are appalled that FMAP failed,” states Judith Stein, Executive Director of the Center for Medicare Advocacy, “this help is so desperately needed by the states and by low-income families. Without the increased federal match, many states will face devastating budget deficits that will result in terrible Medicaid cuts,” says Ms. Stein. “The loss of FMAP will only reinforce the belief that you can’t trust the federal government and that some senators just don’t care about the states or the people.”
