Medicaid expansion needs your support

Print Article

I felt like I was going to die earlier in late January. I thought I was going to drown in my own chest fluids every time I laid down. I thought I had pneumonia. Being a veteran (Korea í71-í72), I was able to get some medical help from our local Sandpoint VA Clinic and wound up at Grandstaff Veterans Hospital in Spokane. I was lucky. I only had a severe cold.

If youíve lived and worked in Idaho very long, you know that for the majority of us making a living is difficult. Iím not sure what the current average wage is, but the last time I checked it was down at the bottom of the list. We love living here and are able to eke out a living, but for many, that level of living does not include health care. I think itís a crime that the ďGreatest Nation on EarthĒ doesnít provide basic preventative healthcare for its citizens!

You can help make a real difference for the 78,000 Idahoans who donít have healthcare by signing the petition at Womenís Health Care, 1215 Michigan St., Suite C., Sandpoint; or go to medicaidforIdaho.org for more information.
