Robert Goforth on Health Care

 

 


Expand coverage to help fellow Kentuckians

Q: Will you protect or even expand access to Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act?

A: I believe in expanding health coverage where we can reasonably do it, and I'm not for wholesale chopping of huge numbers of people off Medicaid. The working poor and unemployed and underemployed Kentuckians need help. We cannot turn a blind eye to the plight of thousands upon thousands of our fellow Kentuckians.
