HARRISBURG – Americans for Prosperity Pennsylvania today is hosting a press conference to discuss their opposition to Governor Corbett’s Obamacare Medicaid Expansion plan announcement.
“Governor Corbett’s insistence on expanding Obamacare into Pennsylvania by taking federal money to add anywhere from half a million to 1 million new people onto the exchange is a typical kick the can down the road approach to public policy,” said Jennifer Stefano, State Director of Americans for Prosperity Pennsylvania. “The federal money is available today, but each year less and less comes into the state and in a decade, the money runs out. The Governor will be long gone, but the million new enrollees will not and the taxpayers will once again have to foot the bill.”
The press conference will feature remarks from Arkansas – Representative Jim Dotson and Senator Jim Hendren, State Rep. Daryl Metcalfe (PA-12) as well as Jennifer Stefano, Americans for Prosperity Pennsylvania State Director.
“It has become very clear that taxpayers – whether Democrat or Republican – want one thing from their elected officials – protection from Obamacare,” continued Stefano. “We ask nothing more and nothing less from Governor Corbett and we will continue to oppose any efforts to expand Obacamcare into Pennsylvania.”
