The Senate Republican Caucus has once again taken a stand on Obamacare!
Yesterday, we BLOCKED Democratic efforts to create a massive new Medicaid expansion called for by Obamacare.
The move will save South Carolinians untold hundreds of millions of dollars over the coming years.
And it’s literally “untold….” because even supporters of the legislation had NO IDEA what it would have cost our state after the federal government pulls its support of the expansion in a few years.
It’s become an all too familiar pattern with the Obama Administration – they dangle federal funds in front of states, luring them in with the promise of “free” federal money for a few years.
Then, when budget writers and citizens grow dependent on the federal assistance, the feds pull their support, leaving states footing the entire bill.
But we know better – nothing in life is free, and the Caucus recognized the future budgetary danger taking seemingly free money would pose to future taxpayers.
Thank you for your support of us in standing against the Obamacare Medicaid expansion!
