Americans for Prosperity Pennsylvania, the Commonwealth’s largest grassroots organization, is reacting to the announcement that Governor Corbett has submitted his Healthy PA plan to the federal government for approval.
“Asking the federal government for assistance and approval of a healthcare plan is like asking a little leaguer to play in the World Series. Completely out of their league,” said Anna McCauslin, Policy Director of Americans for Prosperity-Pennsylvania. “The rollout of ObamaCare has been an utter disaster littered with delays and disappointments which clearly demonstrate this law should not have been forced upon the American people. Governor Corbett seeking federal approval for his Healthy PA plan will only allow more of this disastrous law to invade the lives of the hard-working families and business owners of our Commonwealth.”
Governor Corbett’s Healthy PA Plan was submitted to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for a waiver to the Medicaid Expansion piece of the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare.
“Governor Corbett should reconsider his push to expand ObamaCare into Pennsylvania using the unsustainable Medicaid scheme as part of his ‘Healthy PA’ plan,” continued McCauslin. “The working families of Pennsylvania need Governor Corbett to protect them from ObamaCare, not to expand this harmful law into our state.”
