Where the Jobs Are: Healthcare

Getting more Americans back to work without sacrificing healthcare services for those that need it the most should be our top priority as a nation. Now more than ever, Americans cannot afford devastating cuts to Medicaid and Medicare.

Congress: Invest In Healthcare To Invest In Jobs

  • Healthcare jobs account for nearly 1 out of 8 jobs nationally.

  • Medicaid and Medicare don't just provide lifesaving care to millions of seniors, people with disabilities and children - they also generate millions of good jobs.

  • As nearly 15 million Americans struggle to find work, now is not the time to cut essential healthcare programs and further weaken our economy by cutting jobs.

1 million dollars in medicaid funding = 17.1 new jobs

Healthcare Work That Needs Doing

The most important thing we can do for our economy is put America back to work in jobs that will help meet our nation's healthcare, education, infrastructure, and other needs. Help Congress ‘get the picture!’

Get the Facts

Tell Congress to protect funding for Medicaid and Medicare and to pass the American Jobs Act now.
