Expand Medicaid in Missouri

To be delivered to The Missouri State House and The Missouri State Senate

Petition Statement

Medicaid expansion would provide for approximately 300,000 Missourians the opportunity to have their basic health needs met. This program is federally funded for the first few years and will cost the state absolutely nothing. After that, the state's cost is only 10 percent. This is a small price to pay for providing affordable health care to those who need it most. Failure to do so will hurt hospitals (esp. in rural areas), and cost our state much-needed jobs as well.
There are currently 4,641 signatures. NEW goal - We need 5,000 signatures!

Petition Background

I am starting this petition because my sister lost her job and, even though we gave her money for COBRA medical insurance, she didn't have enough money for her medications and died as a result.
