Expansion of Medicaid in Iowa is necessary
I was pleasantly surprised this week at the number of visitors who came to the Capitol. We’ve had terrible, and unexpected, snow conditions all over the state. Nevertheless, thousands of visitors from various groups and organizations came to lobby their legislators. On Tuesday and Wednesday, many Iowans came to push the Governor to expand health care to 150,000 Iowans who don’t have private health insurance. Members of AARP and doctors from across the state spent the day talking to lawmakers about the health and financial benefits of expanding Medicaid.
