Here’s a clip from Mike Maharrey from 10th amendment center. I’ve come to know Mike in the last fews weeks, he’s a great guy and full of knowledge about the founders and history. He explains what will happen to States like Tennessee if they take the money and later it is cut off, which as Steve explains always happens. State Senator John Stevens told me the local Camden hospital was pushing for the expansion. I believe our local hospital is owned by one of the Jackson Hospitals.
Tenth Amendment Center communications director Mike Maharrey discusses attempts in Arkansas, and other states, to go ahead with Medicaid expansion on the Paul Harrell Program (KBTM 1230 AM Jonesboro, Ark.
Maharrey notes pressure and money thrown around by large insurance and health care companies is even driving so-called conservatives to embrace Medicaid expansion, and through it, entrenchment of Obamacare in the U.S.
“Our position at the Tenth Amendment Center is that we need to do everything we can to keep this thing (Obamacare) from getting its tenitcals into the system. We need to force the federal government to back off of this horrible health care plan and we need to go back and start looking at free market solutions and state-based solutions where states actually have some control and aren’t being dictated everything by the feds.”
