*BREAKING* ObamaCare Vote Imminent!
HEALTH EXCHANGE VOTE COMING TUESDAY IN MI. SENATE!!!
Learn more about these three scenarios here .
Last week, the House of Representatives approved the $30.6 million federal grant to fund the creation of a state partnership model. Tomorrow, the Senate will likely vote on HB 4111. I believe that once we do that, we are obligated to the federal government, having essentially committed ourselves to federally-run healthcare.
As stated by Americans for Prosperity: "Health care exchanges were created by the president's flawed health care law and serve to pile thousands of pages of rules and regulations while transferring control to health care bureaucrats in Washington. These bloated bureaucracies drive up the cost of insurance on hardworking families and raise taxes on businesses.
Hypocrisy on this issue in the Michigan Legislature is led by Governor Snyder who on one hand says the feds need to get their budget under control, but then on the other hand seizes every last dollar of federal money possible. Even worse, theimplementation of Obamacare in Michigan will hurt hardworking families."
Why does the governor and the legislature feel so compelled to grab this $31 million? With a state budget of over $50 billion, $31 million is a rounding error. If we ever needed to set up the technology for implementing any kind of health care program, we could surely find the dollars for it.
