Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: I am a teacher. In my county we have over 10,000 children on Medicaid. If students do not have access to health care then they miss school. When they miss school, they miss learning opportunities. Poor health and poor education leads to poor or lack of employment opportunities. It’s a fierce cycle that needs to end.

Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: It’s about education and employment as I stated above.
