Voters urged to support healthcare expansion
February 19, 2015
To the editor:

According to a study done by the University of Missouri in 2012 (The Economic Impact of Medicaid Expansion on Missouri):

According to Community Health Assessments over 700 Missourians die due to lack of healthcare each year.

Please Call State Senator Ron Richard at (800) 980-4407 and encourage him to CLOSE THE COVERAGE GAP. Let him know you support Medicaid Expansion in Missouri and that you VOTE!

A canvas on this issue is planned for this Saturday sponsored by Missouri Health Care for All. It will take place at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 21, 2015, at Walgreens, 3222 S. Main, Joplin. For more information about the canvas, phone Dottie Elbert, Joplin regional organizer for health care at (417) 2352.

Krista Stark, executive director of Southwest Missouri Democrats
