Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: Students and families with whom I work need dental and vision care, and many cannot access that care without support from Medicaid. Children with cavities can’t concentrate on learning, and if they can’t see they can’t read.

Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: It will force already-strapped school systems to provide yet more social services that should be the responsibility of government, thereby reducing the funds that can be spent on children’s education.
