added 3/11/13:
The expansion of the Medicaid program is very important for Missourians. It will not only provide health care coverage for thousands, but also create over 24,000 jobs across Missouri.

Attached is the full University of Missouri report on the expansion impact on Missouri, an article in the St Louis paper written by Rep. Chris Kelly (D) Columbia regarding the impact on Missouri hospitals, and a short data sheet. Thank you Lois Reborne for providing the information

Please take a few minutes to contact your local legislator to voice your support for this important program.

8/22/12 -Below is a [link to a] piece from YES! magazine giving helpful guidelines to asking politicians questions. I think it can be used anytime you need to ask a question on a political topic. We need to be more proactive when we hear right wingers spouting nonsense. Our silence is heard as consent and they are emboldened to spout more stuff they've heard on FAUX NEWS.
