We're almost there! Can anyone identify what this building is that Judi is walking nearby? This photograph was taken during the White House with Small Business Majority on Medicaid Expansion. 2/24/14Judi joined 40 other small business owners from all over the nation at the White House to discuss about the importance of  Medicaid Expansion. 2/24/14
“Medicaid expansion is an important issue facing my business and many others here in Pennsylvania. Not only will it level the playing field for small businesses like mine, but it will actually pump money into Pennsylvania’s economy and that will boost my bottom line,” said Lou Camerlengo, President of Five Star Development in Pittsburgh, Pa. “Its an important issue, which is why I’m making time to come to Washington to meet with policymakers to discuss this issue.”

Research has shown that expanding Medicaid eligibility would be a boon to state economies and small firms by leveling the play field for small businesses, creating a healthier and more productive workforce and pumping new money into the economy.

“The bottom line is that expanding Medicaid in every state would lower insurance costs for small businesses and encourage a more robust workforce,” said John Arensmeyer, Founder & CEO of Small Business Majority. “This would enrich the economy and create an environment much friendlier to many small employers who currently struggle to afford health insurance. With lower insurance costs and healthier workers, small employers can worry less about healthcare and concentrate on growing their businesses and creating jobs.”
