Texas Governor Perry Says He Won’t Expand Medicaid As Called For In Affordable Care Act
Submitted by Cheston Catalano
The Texas governor has decided what the Supreme Court has done is “unconstitutional.”
“I will not be party to socializing health care and bankrupting my state in direct contradiction to our Constitution and our founding principles of limited government,” Perry said in a statement..
About 6.2 million Texans — a quarter of the state’s population — are uninsured…
Texas Democratic Party spokeswoman Rebecca Acuna called Perry’s announcement “both cruel and negligent.”
“Rick Perry’s Texas solution is to let Texans stay ill and uninsured,” Acuna said. “That is not a health care plan. Once again Perry is putting partisan political pandering in front of the interests of Texas.”
