HEALTHCARE

Thousands of working people with little or no care

Because of the legislature's refusal to expand medicaid, over 80,000 Idahoans have little or no coverage.

If these people were all put in one place, they would make up Idaho's third or fourth largest city.

My family personally benefited from a subsidized physical therapy program for my middle son, who went on to complete recovery and success. Now even programs like this are in jeopardy under state and federal cutting.

Unless something new is done, the legislature will continue to fail this immense group of Idahoans.
