Today, The Arc of the United States is releasing a video featuring people who rely on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and/or Medicaid, and each one has a personal message for Members of Congress and the Trump Administration. The individuals with disabilities and family members featured implore their elected officials to understand the real world impact of repealing the ACA and decimating Medicaid, and each person puts a face on the rollbacks and cuts being debated in Congress. As you know, Congress returns to Washington, DC this week poised to take up a health care bill that has gone from bad to worse for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) and their families, since they pulled the American Health Care Act from a vote a few weeks ago — and its possible that a vote will happen soon. Please share this video widely with your networks to show the impact of repealing the ACA and cutting Medicaid — including through your social media channels, your chapter members, staff, volunteers, advocates, state coalition partners, your Members of Congress, and state elected officials.

The Arc of Somerset County shared Coalition for a DSP Living Wage's post.
"The people I work with are inspiring. I am inspired to do better for the greater good of another’s life. I love my job for one reason that could be described a million different ways: the people. Being a DSP is unbelievably rewarding. My job is honest and respected. My coworkers and I are not just DSPs, but counselors, teachers, nurses, coaches, advocates and friends to the people we serve. We get to end our days knowing we helped someone, whether by teaching a new job skill, giving a medication, doing first aid or just lending an ear. I absolutely love my job because it is not a job, but a way of life."
I am a direct support professional (DSP) who works with people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Despite the significant and historic lack of funding in this field, going to work makes me
