TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Several Republicans and Democrats running for the Kansas Legislature have urged changing the state's policy to allow people with disabilities to earn higher incomes without sacrificing their Medicaid benefits. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that seven candidates for state office and two candidates for federal office participated in a forum in Topeka on Wednesday. Several candidates agreed that the state shouldn't decrease aid when a person with disabilities has an income that exceeds $725 per month, and some urged the expansion of Medicaid. Democrats including state Representative Jim Gartner, House candidate Chris Huntsman, Senate candidate Candace Ayars, Senate Minority Leader Anthony Hensley and U.S. House candidate Britani Potter participated in the forum. Republican state Senator Vicki Schmidt was also in attendance.
