When STL DSA gathered hundreds of signatures this past winter, we looked forward to the day when Medicaid Expansion would qualify for the ballot. Now, it’s on the August ballot and we all get to vote for Amendment 2 tomorrow! Amendment 2 will lead to 230,000 additional people getting health insurance through Medicaid. It also sends a message that working class people want actual public services, not more austerity and cuts. Everyone deserves healthcare, and the best way to get it is through public ownership and democratic control of our healthcare system.
We know the fight for truly universal healthcare doesn’t end tomorrow if we pass Amendment 2, but let’s go claim what’s ours by voting Yes and tell the capitalists their racist scare tactics won’t work to divide the working class.
Today Medicaid Expansion, tomorrow Medicare for All!
