@WillisGov Over seven hundred thousand (700,000), citizens of South Carolina live in poverty. Not only would expanding Medicaid provide masses of people with access to quality medical care, it would give the state financial growth which is desperately needs.
@WillisGov By expanding Medicaid we can expand many quality health care services which poor people lack in the state, mental health services included. Preventative services for chronic illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease, and kidney disease are needed.
As governor, I’ll do everything I can to reduce the cost of higher education for South Carolina students. The high price legislators ask South Carolina students to pay to attend our state’s colleges and universities is a direct result of their failure to better fund our schools.
After the debate last night, I spoke to several students and young Democrats, some of whom are eligible to vote for the first time this year. The deadline to register to vote in person in the June 12 Democratic Primary is May 11, so make sure you're registered. #scpol
