LANSING, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Governor Rick Snyder is sending a serious message to Michigan's Congressional delegation.
In a letter ahead of Thursday's health care vote, the governor says the American Health Care Act will hurt the state's most vulnerable residents.
He sent letters to every member of Michigan's congressional delegation to warn how house republicans' health care legislation would "adversely impact" them.
The letters say the debate has largely focused on people participating in the expanded Medicaid program.
But he says half of all Michigan children are served by traditional Medicaid, which would also be affected by the bill.
The Congressional Budget Office has said 24 million people will lose insurance under that plan.
In addition to the letter by the governor, multiple groups will be gathering outside of Congressman Fred Upton's downtown Kalamazoo office to send him a message.
They are worried about the plan as well.
That rally is planned from 5 to 6 p.m. on Michigan Avenue.
