LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Medicaid expansion is a must

Tuesday, February 5, 2013 | 12:44 p.m. CST

Last week, Gov. Jay Nixon made his State of the State address. In his speech, he continued to provide both the economic and moral reasons to support a Medicaid expansion in Missouri. This issue seems so straightforward to me, and I am once again disappointed by the resistance of legislators to engage in a joint effort to improve the quality of life for 260,000 Missouri residents and create 24,000 jobs in the state of Missouri.
