Hanger says don’t fall for Corbett’s Medicaid charade

Hanger says don’t fall for Corbett’s Medicaid charade

Harrisburg – John Hanger today said that Governor Corbett’s cynical proposal to the federal government for Medicaid expansion is designed to be rejected.

“No one should be fooled by Corbett’s Medicaid charade,” said Hanger. “If Corbett had done the right thing and just said “yes” to the federal government’s offer to pay for Medicaid expansion, starting on January 1st 700,000 uninsured Pennsylvanians would finally have access to decent health care.”

“Because Corbett has refused to expand Medicaid, Pennsylvania loses $10 million each and every day that could be used to provide health care coverage and to support thousands of health care jobs,” continued Hanger. “What’s worse, the governor absolutely knows that his proposal is full of poison pills, like the requirement to seek work, which will compel the federal government to reject it.”

“I will accept the Medicaid expansion on day one of my administration. It’s the right thing for uninsured Pennsylvania families, including the families of many of our veterans, and the right thing for Pennsylvania’s economy,” concluded Hanger.

Democratic candidate for Governor of Pennsylvania John Hanger is widely regarded as one of the most insightful and best informed progressive public policy experts in the state. Formerly a public-interest lawyer advocating on behalf of low-income families, John is nationally recognized as a leading authority on clean energy development and environmental protection. He served both Governors Casey and Rendell in key positions: first for Bob Casey as Commissioner of the Public Utilities Commission, where he successfully fought to cap electric rates to save Pennsylvania ratepayers billions and for two years as Secretary of the Department of Environmental Protection in the Rendell Administration. Throughout his career in public service, John has embodied the essence of his campaign slogan "Policy first, politics second."
