9/22/2020 | Important Election Update

Now that voters know Mike Parson is out for himself, they need to learn that even while Missouri is in the red zone with COVID cases spiking, Mike Parson is making it harder for thousands of Missouri families to afford their healthcare. Even as thousands have lost their jobs and millions are worried about getting sick, Parson wants to rip healthcare away from over 2 million Missourians with pre-existing conditions, that he cut 100,000 kids from their healthcare coverage, and he opposes Medicaid Expansion that would give 250,000 working people healthcare and save our rural hospitals when we need them the most.
