As Washington continues to play havoc with all our lives, let’s turn our attention to our state legislators. A Tuesday recount for a state house election in Virginia has resulted in a one-vote-margin win for the Democrats. The Republicans in Virginia have now lost their majority, and there is a chance that the legislators may be able to enact Medicaid expansion, which is backed by the outgoing Governor as well as his successor. Other states are also considering Medicaid expansion.
1. Contact your State Representative and ask them to work to expand Medicaid in order to achieve universal coverage in your state.
2. Contact your State Senator and ask the same thing.
3. Contact your State Governor and ask the same thing.
