SHOW-ME MEDICAID EXPANSION WINNING IN MISSOURI!!! DOUBLEPLUSGOOD!!!



We adorn this news with an iconic image of hottie Denise Milani if only to depict how happy this makes Missouri progressives . . .

KSHB: Missouri voters sign off on Medicaid expansion

Deets:

"Missouri Amendment 2 will expand Medicaid coverage to all adults ages 19 to 65 with an income of 133% of the federal poverty level or less.

"Jackson County voters overwhelmingly approved Amendment 2 with 41,233 votes for and 25,528 votes against, according to unofficial results.

"It was the same story in Platte and Clay counties, where more than three of five voters approved the amendment, while nearly 55% of Cass County voters voted no."

Bigger picture:

Forbes: Medicaid Expansion Wins In Red State Missouri

We'll be surprised if the Missouri GOP majority doesn't gut this measure in much the same way that they soiled "clean Missouri" ethics reform.

But for now, this is certainly a sign of the times and a signal that even one of the most conservative states in the USA wants a greater portion of freebie healthcare.

SMH. Missouri wants conservative leaders running the state, yet also wants expanded Medicaid, medical marijuana and minimum wage increases. Maybe we should just elect people who are in favor of these progressive measures?

Missouri Starts With Killa City to the west with a huge Murder problem and ends to the east with St Louie shithole killer town. What can you expect for their wants ? Love driving thru the Blight of St Lou. Reminds you of a war torn country. Seems they have a lot to address prior to moving on to others.

Don't count the Republicans in Jefferson City out yet!

They have a pretty good record of thwarting the will of the Voting Public and preventing anything of benefit to the Citizens of Missouri.

We'll have to see what their owners want them to do about this.

We are going to bankrupt the state and country paying for those who make poor life choices. I feel for those who have horrible conditions and would gladly help, but the system is greatly abused by lazy and entitled locusts

^^and yet that's a myth and and the system is really abused by old white people addicted to opioids, but don't let the facts get in the way of your narrative. I mean you would like to help, but not THOSE people. By the way..What would Jesus do?

Medicaid expansion has nothing to do with granny or grandpa. They were already covered.
