At RESULTS, we believe that everyone deserves affordable healthcare and nutritious food to eat. We work to:
Strengthen and expand SNAP (formerly known as food stamps), which helps put food on the table for more than 40 million Americans. We push back against any policy proposals that would harm or undermine the program.
Ensure that Medicaid, a federal health insurance program that provides free or low-cost health care for 1 in 5 people in the United States, stays fully funded and available to those who need it.
