Encourage passage of Medicaid Expansion scook
Updated: 2014-02-17 13:54:50
To the editor:

We are now six weeks into the 2014 legislative session, and there is a lot that needs to happen for Missouri to pass Medicaid Expansion this year. We need to be sure our legislators are hearing regularly from Missourians who believe that saving lives, creating jobs, and bringing Missouri tax dollars back to Missouri should be a priority. No matter where you live your voice matters!

Some sample reasons are:

  • Saves as many as 700 lives per year, and covers almost 300,000 of our hard working family, neighbors, and friends

  • Missouri tax dollars should stay in Missouri. We are losing over $5 million a DAY of guaranteed federal dollars. State will save $1 Billion by 2022. It is a budget win!

  • Keeps our rural hospitals open and ambulances running

  • Save and create over 24,000 jobs

Please take two minutes and call (877) 841-7419 to tell your Senator that you support Medicaid expansion. Be sure to leave your name, full address, and why you believe Missouri should expand Medicaid.

Susan Cook, Missouri Association for Social Welfare, Jefferson City, MO
