Missouri Viewpoints Interview with Rep. Brian Baker

October 8th, 2007 by mopns · No Comments

Rep. Baker is from Belton and is currently serving his third term in the Legislature.

During the interview, Baker disputes Democrats’ claim that hundreds of thousands of Missourians have been thrown off state health care over the past three years, saying that reducing Medicaid fraud and people finding private health care account for parts of the reductions. He also discusses his view of what the government’s role in health care should be.

During the interview, the subjects of the ongoing lawsuit against the state by many school districts over the current funding formula and the effects of the federal No Child Left Behind Act are also discussed.

Baker also talks about fellow Cass Countian Chris Koster’s decision to leave the Republican Party and join the Democratic Party mid way through his first term in the State Senate.
