Late Thursday morning in Jefferson City around one hundred fifty supporters of Medicaid expansion in Missouri rallied in front the Governor’s Mansion. If the right wingnut controlled General Assembly had honored the wishes of voters and the explicit language they approved for inclusion in the Missouri Constitution access to health care for hundreds of thousands of Missourians would have started on July 1st.

Several members of the minority party in the Missouri General Assembly attended in solidarity.

State Representative Doug Clemens (D).
