A 200-plus crowd, including a strong contingent from Iola, participated in a rally to expand Medicaid Tuesday at the state capitol.

It’s the same song, umpteenth verse since 2014 to provide approximately 150,000 low-income Kansans with health insurance.

If approved, the federal government will pay more than 95 percent of the additional cost to the state to provide the coverage. Expansion would be a lifeline not only to these people but also to health care providers and facilities that offer them services.
