Encourage Gov. Heineman to Oppose ObamaCare Exchanges

September 03, 2012

Tomorrow we will be participating in a public meeting held by Gov. Heineman to express our opposition to a state health exchange under President Obama’s health care law.

Gov. Heineman has been a strong opponent of ObamaCare and steadfast leader for the full repeal of government-run health care.

The governor was a leader in announcing Nebraska will not participate in expanding Medicaid in order to grow the number of ObamaCare participants.  It was a program that would have bankrupted the state and lowered the quality of care for thousands of Nebraskans.

Now Governor Heineman is being forced by the federal government to consider creation of a state insurance exchange as a mechanism for implementing the health care law.  We will be speaking tomorrow at a public meeting called by the governor to express our opposition to Nebraska implementing ObamaCare.

We hope you can join us.
