IT PASSED! (We cried.)
MEDICAID EXPANSION PASSED!
Thanks to all of you, MedEx advanced off of General File last night in the House. That was the furthest it had ever made it. Until today, when it advanced on 2nd reading. So today marks the furthest MedEx has ever made it in the Wyoming Legislature.
But, with your help, we can break more records tomorrow.
Tomorrow is the big day. Tomorrow is the day they amend. And debate. And take a roll call vote to record for all time who is on the side of the people. Of good health. Of smart investments. Of humanity.
So tonight is the night we want you to get to writing and calling. And if you have written and called and your Rep voted yes, write them and call them again and celebrate their leadership. Ask them to do it again tomorrow. In the moment when it really counts.
Here is a form you can use to do that (thanks Healthy Wyoming!).
Or here is a form you can use to do that (thanks Equality State Policy Center!).
Or here is a form you can use to do that (thanks American Heart Association - WY!).
All we're asking is that you use your voice to make a difference. And, after you do it, call your best friend. Ask her to do it, too.
Look, even if you just take the call from your best friend and then tell two people and those people tell two people, in no time, you've got 16 people making calls to their Reps.
So, make it three. Read this, call your Rep, then call three friends around the state and ask them to do the same. And ask them to ask three friends.
We need to make it clear and inescapable: THE TIME HAS COME. TOMORROW IS THE DAY. MEDICAID EXPANSION SAVES LIVES.
Thanks for helping. Now spread the word!
