Missouri is facing a preventable public health crisis. Families are forced to choose between necessary health care and financial stress. No one should have to choose between putting food on the table or paying for life-saving medical help. The passage of Medicaid Expansion in August was a win for the state. We need elected officials in office when expansion is implemented who will protect the will of the voters and ensure a swift and efficient roll-out.
When I knock on doors and talk to voters in my neighborhood, access to affordable and quality health care - medical, dental, and behavioral health - is consistently a top concern. We know the path forward to reform health care coverage for Missourians. In order to achieve this goal, new representation in our state is required.
