When it comes to health care in Kansas, the question is simple: Should everyone be able to receive adequate care?
And the answer is simple: YES.
Yet, the Kansas Legislature continues to drag their feet in expanding KanCare, despite the fact that an overwhelming majority of Kansas voters support expansion. And what’s worse is that they’ve now taken to blocking any discussion of expansion -- or any other bills that could improve KanCare.
This is unacceptable.
Legislators who support expansion outnumber those who don’t by nearly 2 to 1. But doing nothing gets the same end-result as a vote against Expansion.
Health care for more than 150,000 Kansas who fall into the coverage gap is on the line. And blocking debate on other bills to improve KanCare impacts more than 400,000 Kansans who are already in the program.
