MO Political Action Needed!

HB 700 is Designed to Hurt Missourians

Please take a few moments to read the summary of 2013 HB 700, as introduced by Rep. Jay Barnes (R-Jefferson City). Take a few more minutes to read the entire bill.

In short, HB 700 would:

  1. Remove from Missouri HealthNet “any person receiving blind pension benefits and any person deemed eligible due to a diagnosis of breast or cervical cancer;”
  2. Reduces the eligibility levels for “pregnant women… from 185% of the federal poverty level (FPL) to 133%;”
  3. Delete the Children’s Health Insurance Plan (CHIP) program by 2019;
  4. Eliminates the Uninsured Women’s Health Program by 2014…

This list continues.

Take Action Today! Write or call your state representative, Rep. Barnes ( – 573.751-2412) (who just happens to be the Chair of the assigned GOVERNMENT OVERSIGHT AND ACCOUNTABILITY COMMITTEE , Rep. Mark Parkinson, ( – 573-751-2949), Vice Chair of the Government Oversight and Accountability Committee, and tell them to stop this bill in its tracks.

This bill represents the worse of Missouri and GOP/Conservative politics. If you read closely you will find it is  injurious to the health and well-being of Missouri citizens, AND an out right attack of federal government, regulation and agencies.
