Finish health expansion


I’m urging the Idaho legislators to please not allow bullheadedness to influence their vote on Medicaid expansion for Idaho. If you do, you will just be giving away our allotted money to other states to improve the health care of their citizens instead of improving health care for hard-working Idahoans. What a shame that would be.

Approving a health care exchange for our great state was a good move. Thank you. Now, please finish the job and vote for Medicaid expansion. Envision: Goodbye to the CAT (catastrophic medical indigency) fund and county indigent care, and hello to a healthier Idaho.
