🚨 Medicaid expansion referendum SUCCEEDS in Oklahoma.
IT'S DONE, @TheOklahoman_ confirms.
200,000 people will gain access to public insurance in one of the country's most conservative states.

If we canceled 1 military contract for 1 yr, like the 1 awarded to Boeing, we would have $25B to expand Medicaid in the 14 states that haven't already done so under the ACA. This would mean life for millions of ppl in those states who are still uninsured.https://t.co/k8YBYH0rC6

It's tight right now, but to me it looks likely the Medicaid expansion ballot measure will narrowly pass in Oklahoma.

The AP has called Oklahoma State Question 802 in favor of the YES side. This will expand Medicaid to at least 200,000 residents.

I'm not a Dem.
I've never been a Dem.
If you want one example of why I may as well be the chairwoman of the DNC, it is the story of the obstructionism & selfish moves of the KS GOP in the 2020 #ksleg session.
We could have expanded Medicaid but Susan Wagle wanted higher office https://t.co/7sv6OSOnQZ

The question will enshrine Medicaid expansion in Oklahoma’s constitution — effectively preventing Oklahoma’s GOP-controlled Legislature and Republican governor from limiting or undoing the expansion. https://t.co/GNNo3spQSo

With #SQ802 passed, I bet you're wondering how Oklahoma is going to pay for Medicaid expansion.

Let’s go!!! Thank you Oklahoma for passing Medicaid expansion! This will help so many Oklahomans gain access to care that they so desperately needed when the affordable care act passed many years ago!
