Attorney General Jay Nixon will continue his statewide listening tour on healthcare Friday in Springfield.
The Friday afternoon event will focus on "people affected most" by Gov. Matt Blunt's 2005 Medicaid cuts. The roundtable will be held at the home of local resident in Springfield at 2:45 p.m.
“Matt Blunt created a health care crisis in Missouri when he slashed coverage and benefits from hundreds of thousands of regular folks,” Nixon said in a release. “On this tour, I will be hearing first-hand from the people forced to endure the consequences of Matt Blunt’s wrong priorities.”
Later Friday, Nixon will take his campaign for Governor to Jasper County for a fundraiser.
"People aren’t sitting quietly. They’re making contributions, coming out to rallies, and volunteering their time to change the direction of Missouri," Nixon said in a release.
