  • Stroke Survivors Deserve Better

    If Congress does not act before March 31st, stroke patients on Medicare will face frightening limits on the outpatient therapy needed to regain vital skills like walking and talking. The typical Medicare beneficiary has a $1,900 therapy cap, which usually only amounts to 3-5 weeks of crucial therapy. Our stroke survivors deserve better. Tell Congress to remove these arbitrary caps once-and-for-all!

  • Tell Congress: Kids Will Eat Healthier School Lunches
