House to vote on HB 4111, $31M for Obamacare Exchanges
The Michigan Legislature will vote Thursday, February 28th on HB4111, a $30.6 million supplemental appropriation for federal funds to help implement a state-federal partnership health exchange.
Representative Forlini (R-Harrison Township) said Wednesday morning that implementation of exchanges is inevitable.
“The bottom line is, it’s coming,” he stated “This at least brings some funding in, so we have some control. This car is going down the road, so we’re either in the car driving it (or not).”
Representative Forlini is wrong: Implementation of this law is not inevitable and considering more than half of the American people oppose the law, it is improbable. You and I don’t want to be in the car when it goes off of the cliff, and that is exactly where Obamacare is going to take us.
Health care exchanges were created by the president’s flawed health care law and serve to pile thousands of pages of rules and regulations while transferring control to health care bureaucrats in Washington. These bloated bureaucracies drive up the cost of insurance on hardworking families and raise taxes on businesses.
Hypocrisy on this issue in the Michigan Legislature is led by Governor Snyder who on one hand says the feds need to get their budget under control, but then on the other hand seizes every last dollar of federal money possible. Even worse, the implementation of Obamacare in Michigan will hurt hardworking families.
Join us in resisting a centralized government approach to health care reform and instead focus on solutions that make health care more affordable and accessible for every American.
Lawmakers should work to create a health care system of, for, and by the people, not government or special interests.
Make a difference in this vote. Take action now to oppose HB4111 and the implementation of the Obamacare in Michigan.
