April 24, 2013, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson today issued the following statement praising Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal for urging the Louisiana legislature to block Medicaid expansion under the new federal health care law in a recent oped, “Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion is bad for Louisiana”:
“If the Louisiana legislature listens to Governor Jindal, Louisiana taxpayers will save $337 million from 2014 through 2019, and federal taxpayers another $7.3 billion over the same period, according to a Kaiser estimate. They will be helping to defend taxpayers across the country from an unsustainable expansion of the entitlement state.
“While some governors have caved on this issue, Bobby Jindal has stood on principle, and for that, he deserves the thanks of every taxpayer in the nation. Hopefully the legislature will listen to him, but should members vote to expand Medicaid, we urge Governor Jindal to veto it.”
