WASHINGTON, D.C. – On September 19th, Congressman Westmoreland led a letter with 81 of his colleagues to U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius condemning her authorization to use as much as $12 million in taxpayer money for to promote Obamacare. The advertisements would span across 13 states beginning September 30th. Below is Congressman Westmoreland’s statement.
From the press release:
“This month, 81 congressmen joined me in sending a letter to HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius addressing our objection to this blatant misuse of federal dollars and the overreach of power and authority by the administration and department. Twelve of the thirteen states to see these promotions – including Georgia- are coincidentally led by Republican governors who have rejected or presented an anti-ObamaCare agenda, once again proving that the administration targets those who disagree with this trainwreck of a law. In the letter, I condemn HHS Secretary Sebelius for targeting states that have opted out of Medicaid expansion and spending their dollars on promoting a program they reject.”
“This letter is another example of how I will fight tooth and nail to defund, delay, or repeal this terrible law, and work towards a replacement that actually works,” stated Westmoreland.
