Medicaid Expansion, look at what it is. Medic, aid. Medical aid. Not all of us are fortuitous to be in a position that can afford insurance, but by the same token cannot afford not to have some coverage.
Medicaid expansion has served millions and done wonders in offsetting preventive care, medical costs, prescriptions, hospital stays and visits not to mention helped the majority of those with mental health issues. So I ask: How can our president and powers that be see this go by the wayside?
For those of us on Medicaid expansion, we are not trying to milk or bilk the system. I am at a precarious age, 59. I work 120-plus hours plus every two weeks solo, plus take care of the fine, minute details called life. Some would call it hardscrabble, I call it a blessing in that I also do public speaking and non-ordained ministry work in recovery and addiction. Just for the record, I don't live high off the hog but I am comfortable. Medicaid expansion is a viable solution. Please don't let the sun go down on us.
