Butterfield Opposes General Assembly's Plan to Cripple Health Reform in the North Carolina

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

Congressman G. K. Butterfield (NC-01) today released the following statement regarding plans by state Republican lawmakers in the North Carolina General Assembly to block implementing critical provisions of the Affordable Care Act:

"It is deeply disappointing that Republican state lawmakers have taken steps to block the expansion of Medicaid coverage to 650,000 uninsured low-income residents. These are poor children, older adults, and the disabled that they seek to deny. The provisions of the Affordable Care Act these Republicans reject were carefully designed to facilitate a gradual and affordable phase-in of healthcare reform, while also allowing for state control. Taking steps to obstruct the state from creating an insurance exchange and from expanding Medicaid is not only shortsighted and ill-advised, but also shows a dearth of Republican sensibility and leadership."
