Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: I have lived in rural Kentucky, and have seen the crippling poverty that permeates both the rural and urban areas of the Commonwealth. Dental, vision, and transportation coverage mean a better quality of life for Kentuckians below the poverty line.

Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: Denying the poor these services is just adding insult to injury – without a good reason.
