Every Missourian has the right to quality, accessible, and affordable healthcare. But, unfortunately, every year, countless Missourians are forced to put off care, either because they can’t afford it or they just can’t get an appointment.
While this is happening, the Republicans in the state government have fought for policies that reduce access and leave millions of federal dollars on the table. They are now fighting the Medicaid expansion the voters overwhelmingly supported and are doing so by trying to trick voters into overturning the thing they just voted for.
As your representative, I will fight for common-sense policies, including expanded mental health care access, protection of Medicaid expansion, and effective drug treatment programs. We, as a society, pay for healthcare one way or another. I will work to make sure we are doing it in the most humane and effective way possible.
