Faith Groups Support Medicaid Expansions in Health Care Reform

Disciple Homeland Missions and Disciple Justice Action Network joined more than 60 national, state and local faith organizations filed an Amicus (Friend of the Court) Brief with the U.S. Supreme Court in support of Medicaid expansions in the Affordable Care Act.  The brief argues that these expansions more completely address the original intent of Medicaid – to fulfill the moral imperative to assist those who are poor and sick.
