Rob Schaaf is an awesome person: "Sen. Rob Schaaf, a St. Joseph Republican, wants to roll back Medicaid eligibility standards for pregnant women and young children...'The people who are working, they can help themselves. They can work harder. They can supplement their income in various ways.'"
The real question before legislators in the General Assembly is if they have the courage to stand up to maniacs like Schaaf and expand Medicaid -- the right thing to do and the smart thing to do.
Medicaid saves lives and improves lives for our family members and neighbors, which is why Missourians overwhelming support Medicaid and favor expansion. Investing in Medicaid will also mean billions in new economic activity for the state, save taxpayers money in the long run, and create tens of thousands of high-quality jobs.
