RAM clinic shows need

I wonder if those against expanding Medicaid know about Remote Area Medical, a charity formed to help those without medical care in Third World countries.

Over the years, RAM has expanded to areas within the U.S., including Wise County here in Virginia. I find it disgraceful and embarrassing that parts of Virginia are considered on par with Third World countries in terms of medical care.

The gap between Medicaid and ACA is far too wide. It's more than medical care; it is disturbing to see people lose their homes or declare bankruptcy because of high medical bills.

Please don't forget that many of these people are currently Virginians in low-wage jobs or formerly employed hardworking Virginians.
