Dear friends of the Medicaid for Idaho Campaign,
Last month, when we decided to go big and put Medicaid Expansion on the Idaho ballot, we heard a litany of doubts:
“A ballot initiative is likely to fail, and failure will make future reforms less likely.”
“The campaign will cost 4 million dollars, and you’ll still lose.”
“Rural voters don’t like Medicaid.”
To all of these doubts, we always had one simple reply: “What about Maine?”
The rural, conservative-leaning state of Maine just now voted to expand Medicaid, and not by a slim margin. Maine’s Medicaid Expansion ballot initiative won by an 18-point landslide.
We believe Idaho can be next, and we need your support. In order to cover our start-up expenses, we need to raise $2,000 within the next week. One generous donor has made us an offer: If we can raise $1,500 by November 15th, the donor will contribute the last $500. Please donate $5 or more here:
Up until November 15th, anyone who donates $50 or more will receive a “Medicaid for Idaho Tour” Commemorative Calendar for 2018.
The Reclaim Idaho Team
