The Republican controlled Congress, which has has not backed down from its efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act, will likely reject the Obama’s proposal due to its cost.
“The Medicaid program is already driving up state deficits without providing meaningful coverage for participants leading to a high-quality doctor-patient relationship,” Republican Rep. Charles Boustany said in a statement Wednesday. “Without reforms, these problems will add up to a deficit explosion exacerbating an already strained system. This isn’t a Republican or a Democrat issue, it’s an issue of what works. Expanding Medicaid lock, stock, and barrel under ObamaCare is an irresponsible choice for Louisiana’s future.”
