Use these key talking points when making your captions for social media:

– Missourians were misled by Medicaid Expansion proponents, who told voters it would save taxpayers money, not cost up to $349 million each year.

– Voters may have approved Medicaid expansion under false pretenses, but the #moleg has the constitutional authority to withhold funding and oppose expansion.

– Medicaid expansion will conflict with Missouri’s constitutional mandate to balance the budget and pose a threat to our state’s fiscal health.

– Amendment 2, which expanded Medicaid Expansion, did not provide a funding source and it is unconstitutional to force the #moleg to fund this irresponsible policy.

– Expanding Medicaid could divert needed resources from education or require a future tax increase. The #moleg should oppose Medicaid expansion.
