Lets keep up the momentum!

I’m inspired this cold, snowing morning to hope for better times in WV with this news article which describes our WV-DHHR’s commonsense (and effective) approach to enrolling as many into Medicaid expansion as fast as possible. We are now number one in the nation on Medicaid and such a positive move makes it possible to imagine lots more progressive “wins”.

WV, How about moving on to raise the Minimum Wage? This would put us up there with states like New Jersey whose voters just approved such a move over the veto of the popular Republican governor that they reelected at the same time. “Increasing New Jersey’s minimum wage will give nearly half a million working New Jerseyans a crucial leg up while pumping hundreds of millions of dollars into the state’s economy.”

How about it, West Virignia?
