Sioux Falls Chamber of Commerce Endorses Amendment D

A voter told me she’d oppose Amendment D, South Dakota’s long-delayed expansion of Medicaid, because Democrats are pushing it.

Voter, you’ll need to rethink your opposition. The Sioux Falls Chamber of Commerce, which is made up of a lot of people who aren’t Democrats, is pushing Amendment D:

The Sioux Falls Chamber of Commerce announced it will support Constitutional Amendment D ahead of the 2022 election.

Constitutional Amendment D would expand Medicaid in South Dakota. The chamber said its board of directors adopted a position of support and urges members to vote “yes.”

“Expansion of health services to working people will improve the overall health of our workforce, which leads to healthy businesses and a healthy economy,” the statement from the Sioux Falls Chamber of Commerce said [Eric Mayer, “Sioux Falls Chamber of Commerce Supports Amendment D,” KELO-TV, 2022.08.26].

Expanding Medicaid to cover more working South Dakota is good for people and good for business, regardless of what party they vote for. Put your party labels aside, and vote for good policy: Vote Yes on D!

    Do the majority of SD voters choose Republicans because they don’t have to educate themselves about issues or candidates?

    P Aitch – you see the light (or is it the intellectual darkness?) that is the focus of a very large proportion of SD voters.

    Voting is like driving, to go forward, choose “D,” to go backwards, choose “R.”

    It’s a good business decision, really. Someone’s paying for the cost of health care to people who fall through the cracks, and generally the costs get shifted to the folks who can pay.
