✅Expanding Medicaid through the ACA would help rural hospitals in Missouri.
✅The same rural voters being hurt by attacks on the ACA keep voting Republican both at state and federal level (Josh Hawley)

Missouri’s rural hospitals are closing. Yet rural voters keep sending people like Josh Hawley, Billy Long and Vicki Hartzler to DC.…
Missouri has one of the worst maternal death rates in the country. This week the Missouri legislature refused to even *study* the issue.…
What is the make-up of the Missouri legislature?
If your own wives, mothers, daughters and children dying can’t get you to change your vote, I don’t know what can.…

Maybe I’m missing something. I grew up in rural Missouri. We had a farm, guns and went to Church every Sunday. But when the people you vote for are doing the *opposite* of what you want them to do or are actually hurting your interests, you change who you’re voting for.
Whenever I think of the plight of the Missouri rural voter, I’m reminded of what my mom taught me. “The good Lord helps those who help themselves”. If the rural Missouri voter wants things to change for them, they gotta first stop voting for people who are working against them.
