Urges Governor Corbett:
“Refuse to Set Up Healthcare Exchanges”
The Republican Liberty Caucus of Pennsylvania (RLCPa) passed a unanimous resolution on December 4, 2012, requesting that Governor Corbett refuse to set up the healthcare exchanges.
“Obamacare is bad for America, and it is certainly bad for Pennsylvania,” stated Interim Chair Lois Kaneshiki. “We urge the Governor and the General Assembly to refuse to set up the healthcare exchanges and fight this destructive legislation.”
“We urge all freedom-loving citizens to contact the Governor and their representatives in the General Assembly before the December 15 deadline and ask them not to set up these exchanges.”
Citizens should call the Governor’s office at 717-787-2500, or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The full text of the resolution is below:
Whereas the Affordable Care Act (AFA) is a federal government takeover of our healthcare system, and
Whereas, we believe it is an individual right and responsibility to choose and contract with one’s healthcare provider for services, and
Whereas, the AFA does not allow markets to function more efficiently, but will prevent them from doing so, and
Whereas, federal funding for the healthcare exchanges will end in 2015, and will cost Pennsylvania’s families $3,000 extra per year, and
Whereas, Alabama, Alaska, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, Ohio, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Virginia, Wyoming have all declared they will not implement the exchanges:
Resolved, that the Republican Liberty Caucus of Pennsylvania requests that Governor Corbett refuse to set up the healthcare exchanges; and
Resolved, that the Republican Liberty Caucus of Pennsylvania requests the state Assembly to pass legislation that would prevent Pennsylvania from setting up healthcare exchanges.
