LANSING, Mich. – Hot on the heels of a vote in the Michigan State Senate to expand Medicaid under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Americans for Prosperity-Michigan state director Scott Hagerstrom issued the following statement:
“The State Senators who voted to expand Medicaid just voted to implement ObamaCare. We are prepared to dedicate significant resources to educating citizens on how their Senators voted on this issue.
“Our state leaders can no longer blame the failures of President Obama’s health care law on Washington, DC, politicians alone. By agreeing to expand Medicaid they are complicit with the Obama Administration in implementing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
“The consequences of ObamaCare are already being felt—from workers who face cuts in their hours to those being pushed off their existing health insurance plan. As the failures of this law pile up, I have no doubt that some of the lawmakers who today supported this proposal will regret that decision.”
