Dear Governor Kasich,
We the undersigned residents of Ohio stand firmly and strongly against the expansion of Medicaid in Ohio under the Federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).
In the current structure, Medicaid spending in Ohio is already an unsustainable fiscal liability to our state. The fiscal liability of expanding Medicaid in Ohio will compound this burden and will quickly outgrow any promised funds from the Federal Government.
Any expansion of Medicaid in Ohio will further increase the financial burden for future generations of Ohio residents.
We strongly believe that continuing the proposed expansion of Medicaid is not only fiscally irresponsible, but does not solve the issue of quality, affordable care through a balanced free market approach.
Please be advised that the undersigned Ohio residents will remain engaged and active in the legislative process to do our part to stop any expansion of Medicaid in Ohio under, or in conjunction with, the Federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
We request that you please reconsider your proposed expansion of Medicaid so we can all concentrate our efforts in moving our state forward rather than saddling us with further financially unsustainable entitlements.
