With Kansans set to elect a new governor the issue of Medicaid expansion should be front and center. Here is part of a Topeka Capital-Journal recent editorial which I quote:

Thirty-two states have now expanded Medicaid, allowing citizens struggling to make ends meet to get extra help with the cost of healthcare. Seventeen of those states had Republican-controlled legislatures, seventeen have Republican governors. Governments in those states have realized that Medicaid expansion is not a partisan issue.

It just makes sense for states like Kansas.

Expanding Medicaid in Kansas would mean offering benefits for an additional 150,000 low-income Kansans who make too much to qualify for traditional Medicaid but not enough to be eligible for financial assistance to buy private health insurance.

Opponents complain that some of these Kansans are able-bodied and choosing not to work and those with no income already qualify for support.

It’s the working poor who too often fall between the cracks. Hearing the stories of those impacted by lack of Medicaid coverage points to the complexity of their situations. They are students, people working very low-wage jobs, people unable to find affordable childcare and people with physical or mental illness that fall just short of the standards to qualify for disability.

With 90 percent of the costs covered by the federal government, an expansion would allow an influx of much-needed resources into Kansas hospitals and long-term care facilities.

The Kansas legislature did the right thing last year by passing Medicaid expansion, which was vetoed by then-governor Sam Brownback.

The editorial then says: If our elected leaders are unwilling or unable to expand Medicaid, Kansas should consider taking the campaign directly to the ballot box.

          Unfortunately, my sources tell me Kansas doesn’t allow for Referendums, so while Maine passed expanded Medicaid with a 59% margin and several other states will be voting in November that won’t happen in Kansas meaning we need to elect officials who support expanding Medicaid.

The editorial concludes with: Kansans have repeatedly shown support for expansion in large margins. Multiple polls have shown more than 75 percent of Kansas voters support expanding KanCare.

Our failure to expand KanCare has left billions of our tax dollars in the hands of the federal government, but we have an opportunity to change course.

          Well said!

          Today my thoughts come from a really timely column written by Mitch Albom, in the Detroit Free Press on June 30. You’ll remember Mitch from his book and TV show Tuesday’s with Morrie.

          The column was titled: The ricochet effect of public shaming now on full display.

          He talks about the old use of the dunce caps in classrooms in hopes that by shaming someone in front of their peers they’ll think twice about repeating their misdeed.

          He points out today this type of bullying in classrooms is not acceptable, but in our political world unfortunately led by our President the shaming of others using rhetoric is more than common.

          Recently Sarah Hucklebee Sanders, the White House Press Secretary was asked to leave a restaurant in Virginia because the help was upset about her politics. The media has shamed Sanders since even though she was guilty only of doing her job and reportedly left the business without incident.

          The hypocrisy here is the offended employees were reported gay yet they very likely do not support the recent Supreme Court decision saying the Colorado baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple was exercising his religious rights.

          Albom points out the call by Congresswoman Maxine Waters to her supporters in Los Angeles, she said,  If you see anybody from that (Trump) Cabinet in a restaurant, department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and create a crowd….And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.

          Mitch says, Public shaming. All that’s missing is the dunce cap. Except this time, the dumb behavior is from people who think they’re being smart.

          My point is to lift up how often the words being used today in way too many political situations are inappropriate.

          Mitch Albom brings up the wise words spoken by First Lady Michelle Obama several years ago when she said, When they go low, we go high.

          That’s great advice that unfortunately is being followed today by few from either political party. While President Trump is the uncontested ringleader in inappropriate rhetoric there’s plenty of blame to go around.

          Would it not be interesting to make a rule that for a day or a week or longer that politicians had to -  not say anything if they couldn’t say something nice?

          Not a chance!

  • Kansas Crappie Club Tournament raises money for Fishing's Future
Recap of the June 24..Kansas Crappie Club Tournament at Hillsdale Lake.We caught a hundred fish, but no size.  Hillsdale is sometimes called Dinksdale, but the Top Secret Jig winning team of Marc Shepard and Brandon Manus proved there are some good fish in there. Big fish weighed 1.89 pounds and they recorded 7 fish weighing 8.98 pounds. Second place was a mere 2 ounces behind at  8.78.
