Congratulations out-state sister-fuckers. Y’all wouldn’t vote to keep your local health centers open, you just figured you’d keep doing what you’ve been doing…coming to the city, showing up in the ER knowing we have to treat them because of EMTALA.
Blue Girl grew up in rural Missouri, comes from a family with generations involved in farming, served in the military, and currently lives in Kansas City.
The Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA) was passed by the US Congress in 1986 as part of the Consolidated Omnibus Reconciliation Act (COBRA), much of which dealt with Medicare issues. The law’s initial intent was to ensure patient access to emergency medical care and to prevent the practice of patient dumping, in which uninsured patients were transferred, solely for financial reasons, from private to public hospitals without consideration of their medical condition or stability for the transfer….

I’ve seen a lot of commentary from my fellow Missourians living in STL and KC discussing “rural Missouri voting against its interest.”
Here’s the thing.
Y’all have to stop talking about us like we’re stupid. You’ve got to leave your bubble + come stand with us. 6:11 AM · Aug 5, 2020

Still, the vote on Amendment 2 was too damn close. Ya’ll.
