    Missouri voters voted by a 53-47% margin to expand Medicaid eligibility in 2020, but their elected leaders basically patted them on their heads and told them they know what's best by refusing to allocate the $130 million the state would need to spend in order to be eligible for $1.6 billion in federal Medicaid funds. In short, Missouri voters voted for something, but Republicans in Missouri's legislature said "no."

    What is the point of ballot initiatives if state legislatures can simply ignore the will of the people? It's pretty frustrating to witness and I don't even live in Missouri.

    I went to a private junior college directly after high school and I loved it. I wasn't the best high school student and wasn't academically ready or mature enough to dive straight into a university campus, but going to junior college allowed me to still get the "college experience" of dorms and other services a typical university student is used to experiencing while still having a much more intimate setting that allowed me to become a better student before moving to a larger university my junior year.

    I'm fine with this option so long as the business doesn't force their employees to contribute by garnishing their paycheck. If the company is willing to give, lets say a blanket 3% regardless if the employee is contributing or not and then match up to 6%, then I see no problem with it. My only issue would be if the employer forces their employees to contribute.

    Super Tuesday has come and gone and there were two clear winners: Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Senator Sanders was able to win a few states and Senators Rubio and Cruz were able to steal a couple states from Donald Trump, but none of these candidates came close to winning as many delegates as Clinton and Trump.

    So the question is--can anyone beat the Democratic and Republican front runners? My guess is that it's a foregone conclusion that Secretary Clinton will be the Democratic nominee, but there is a chance, albeit very minimal, that Rubio or Cruz can find a path to the nomination. I just don't see that happening though.

    Does anyone think that either of them have a chance to overtake Trump or is it too late?

    That makes sense to me. If you are still making over $85,000 a year then you should have to pay a little more than the senior who is living off of their Social Security benefits. I don't think that's too much to ask.
