Sign the Medicaid Expansion Initiative

In 2017 we experienced greater economic inequality than at any time in the history of our country. When Idaho Senator Jim Risch voted for the tax bill last month, he voted to cut his own family’s taxes by $4,000,000. Meanwhile, the national debt that the bill creates will be used to pressure for cuts to Medicare, Medicaid and other programs.

Reclaim Idaho is putting our Constitution’s first three words “We the people...” back into the mouths of voters with their Medicaid Expansion initiative. What our Senator won’t do for us, we can do for ourselves. Sign the petition to put Medicaid expansion on the ballot.

Contact me at debflory34@yahoo.com or go to https://medicaidforidaho.org/ to download a petition and instructions. You can also sign the petition at Crosstime Saloon/Heart Rock Wines at 6371 Kootenai St. in Bonners Ferry.

Luke Mayville, founder of Reclaim Idaho, promises, “We won’t stop fighting until this government is ours again.”
