BREAKING: WYOMING LEGISLATURE JOINS TENNESSEE REJECTING MEDICAID EXPANSION

The Wyoming Senate just defeated by a vote of 11 to 19 ObamaCare’s Medicaid expansion, despite Gov. Matt Mead advocating for Obama’s signature health care policy in his state. The House pulled their version of the bill shortly after, ending the bill’s hopes in both chambers.

“Today is a great day for taxpayers, patients and the truly needy of Wyoming,” said Tarren Bragdon, CEO of the Foundation for Government Accountability. “We are so excited to see another legislature stand up to another Republican governor in their effort to protect their people from the disaster that is ObamaCare.”

“There is a strong current of opposition to ObamaCare, not just in D.C., but in cities all across America. We’ve talked to the people, and listened to the people, and they don’t want ObamaCare anymore, they want it gone. Their representatives are finally listening, with Tennessee’s Senate ending expansion and Arkansas legislature ending their Private Option. Hopefully this inspires our leaders in Congress to follow through on their campaign promises and they start dismantling ObamaCare at the federal level.”

Tennessee’s expansion bill was defeated Wednesday in its first committee during a very short special session.

“With strong opposition to ObamaCare’s Medicaid expansion in Idaho, Utah, Montana, and elsewhere, we expect to be hearing more stories like this very soon,” said Bragdon.
