Imagine with me a community without proper medical care. No emergency rooms, no local disease treatments, no intensive care units, no hospital to provide much needed surgery in your local community. This is what will certainly happen as a result of the Alabama state legislature not adequately funding Medicaid.

In addition to the loss of health care access, the community will lose hundreds of good jobs and will likely have difficulty recruiting new businesses to the affected areas, thereby creating a rather devastating blow to the overall economy.
