David Dewhurst Opposes Medicaid Expansion in Texas

Statement

U.S. Senate candidate David Dewhurst issued the following statement this morning on his opposition to the Medicaid expansion following the Supreme Court's ruling yesterday to uphold Obamacare:

"I vehemently oppose the Medicaid expansion contained in Obamacare, which will add billions to federal and state spending" said David Dewhurst. "The federal government has nearly $16 trillion in debt, our entitlement system is broken, and our credit rating has been downgraded. I will go to the U.S. Senate and fight to repeal all of Obamacare, including the Medicaid expansion. Adding additional strain to the state budget by adding 1.5-2 million more people to an already broken Medicaid system will be a train wreck for Texas when the federal government's Medicaid match inevitably ends. In order to stop our spiraling federal entitlement costs and get our fiscal house in order, I will lead the charge in Washington to pass a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution, just like we have in Texas. We must shout "NO' to new spending, "NO' to Obamacare, and "NO' to more debt for our children."
