The reluctance of the House of Delegates Republican members to adopt either of the Medicaid expansion proposals before them is starting to have real world consequences: note the attached letter from the CEO of the Culpeper Hospital. The announced closure of the Pennington Gap hospital is at least partially because of the failure to expand Medicaid.
I urge you to contact Delegate Webert and Senator Obenshain and encourage them to find a way to adopt Medicaid Expansion.

Webert, Michael J.
Obenshain, Mark D.
