Kansas Sen. Laura Kelly is running for governor.

If economic development is seen as the cure-all for Kansas, then the expansion of Medicaid would be the ticket. If we feel we’ve lost our way in terms of moral compassion, then Medicaid expansion would put us on a righteous path.

No one measure would help take Kansas into a healthier, more prosperous future than the expansion of Medicaid because of its ability to bring more money and jobs our way plus ensure that  healthcare is not a privilege of only the wealthy.

Rural hospitals and clinics, especially, would benefit, allowing them to move bad debts into positive collections.
