Southwest Missouri Democrats to phone legislators about Medicaid expansion

(From Southwest Missouri Democrats)

The Medicaid issue in Missouri is growing like a wildfire!  So far there are over 840 signers for the petition "Expanding Medicaid in Missouri is a Win, Win, Win."
To have a much more direct impact, we are asking you to phone your state reps with a brief message.  This will enable you to find the number for your state rep:
A postscript gives the numbers of legislators in the southwest Missouri region.
When you call, you don't need to say a lot—just reiterate the main message of the petition, which is:

"The Missouri General Assembly should expand Medicaid for obvious reasons: It would mean 24,000 new jobs, a huge influx of federal money to the state, the rescue of many rural hospitals, and, of course, health insurance for over 200,000 more Missourians."

Then, help us keep track of how many calls have been made by clicking here:

Thank you for taking a stand on this important issue.
