No one should have to choose between paying for life-saving care and putting food on the table, but that’s exactly the choice that more than 230,000 Missourians have to make every day.

Medicaid expansion would deliver health care to thousands of parents, seniors and hardworking Missourians who can't afford to see a doctor. And it would bring more than a billion of our tax dollars home from Washington every year to keep rural hospitals open, create thousands of jobs and boost our economy. That’s money that 36 other states that have expanded Medicaid get, but Missouri has lost out on for years.

Let's put Missouri families first by voting YES On 2 on Tuesday, Aug. 4.
