To the Advertiser-Gleam:
It was good to see in the newspaper recently that Marshall Medical CEO Gary Gore favors expanding Medicare.
The Yellowhammer State is still rated No. 49, with 50 being the worst state to live.
Alabama’s failure to expand Medicaid, a growing income disparity and a regressive Republican legislative agenda continue to place Alabama’s greatness in jeopardy.
Diminished mental care and deadly correctional facilities are also factored into the overall dismal forecast for prospective residents.
