Governor Corbett Continues to Stall

Hughes questions Budget Sec. Charles Zogby on Medicaid expansion :: February 19, 2013
Hughes questions Budget Sec. Charles Zogby on Medicaid expansion :: February 19, 2013

As Another Governor Decides to Expand Medicaid Under the Affordable Care Act, Governor Corbett Continues to Stall

More Than 500,000 Uninsured Pennsylvanians Continue to Suffer
On February 20, Florida Gov. Rick Scott, a Republican and staunch critic of President Barack Obama’s health care law, announced that he will expand Florida’s Medicaid program. This was a complete about face for the governor who was a strong opponent of ObamaCare.
This announcement marks the 7th Republican governor to participate in the expansion of Medicaid. Half of all states have decided to or are leaning towards Medicaid expansion.
Status of State Medicaid Expansion for 2014
Unfortunately for the more than 500,000 uninsured Pennsylvanians hoping for some relief, Gov. Tom Corbett remains opposed to expanding at this time, citing the need to do further analysis on costs and rules associated with Medicaid expansion.
Pennsylvania’s Economy Will Benefit from
Expanding Medicaid - Families USA
Corbett continues to assert that Pennsylvania taxpayers will incur substantial costs related to expanding Medicaid, but what isn’t told is that these costs that he speaks of will occur regardless of Medicaid expansion based on the insurance mandate of the Affordable Care Act. These costs are NOT related to Medicaid expansion and should not be used as a reason for Pennsylvania not to participate.
The facts are:
  • For the first three years, Medicaid expansion is completely covered by the federal government at NO cost to Pennsylvania
  • More than 500,000 uninsured Pennsylvanians would get coverage
  • Pennsylvania would see savings and growth related to Medicaid expansion to the tune of an estimated $670 million
  • Pennsylvania would receive $4 billion a year in federal funds

6:49 see you later! Your pissed because he isnt shoving unconstitutional ideas of your great dictator down your throat? Wow... And before anybody starts with the "interstate commerce clause makes it ok" bullshit, just dont start. I know exactly what it states and more importantly I know what it dont. This will bankrupt our country beyond repair (as if the 7 trillion in 5 years aint enough). Just keep falling in line folks. Keep it up

I like how the democrats spin things! They claim this is the greatest thing ever it creates jobs,saves money even makes money! Yet the government accounting office says just the opposite! Pennsylvania's economy will NOT benefit from this huge government take over of health care.

7:20 - Two wars that Bush failed to put on the books that Obama did makes a huge difference. Add to that unfunded Education mandates signed into law by Bush, tax cuts for the wealthy, etc.

Im sure you will all love the idea in a few years when the federal money stops and we cant fund our schools or road programs and have massive state layoffs because we are forced to expand this program. Once you are in, there is NO getting back out

My doctor is moving to Texas. He told me that Obama care is the end of the greatest healthcare system in the world. Its preety scarry when the doctors are against it. Didn't ayone bother to ask the healthcare providers?
