Yesterday, Missouri state Representative Eric Burlison supported our efforts with an op-ed in Springfield’s News-Leader. Here’s an excerpt:
“Just look at our Medicaid program. For every dollar the state spends, the federal government pays 61 cents. This “partnership” comes with burdensome restrictions that prevent us from providing the best quality care for the most needy Missourians. Furthermore, if we want to make changes, we must run to the federal government and beg for permission or risk losing our funding.
This is not a long-term solution. Washington is bankrupt, but that doesn’t mean our state should be, too! We can and must work to solve problems here in Missouri if we’re going to ensure a strong future for the next generation.”
