AFP-Virginia: Statement on Organizing for Action Medicaid Expansion Rally

Mar 17, 2014 by AFP

Richmond—Americans for Prosperity-Virginia State Director Sean Lansing issued the following statement Saturday in response to a rally in favor of Medicaid expansion put on by the political arm of President Obama:

“President Obama’s political arm can say whatever it wants about Medicaid expansion, but the reality is that citizens across Virginia, local government officials, business leaders and newspaper opinion pages have all made one thing very clear: they do not want a government shutdown over ObamaCare under any circumstances. Instead of trying to score cheap political points at the expense of K-12 education and public safety, Governor McAuliffe should listen to the growing chorus of Virginians who want a clean spending bill that funds our priorities, not Washington-style partisan politics that threaten the future of the Commonwealth.”
