Conservative Guv’s Blast Medicaid Expansion

In a New York Times story today, here’s how conservative Republican Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin explained his refusal to expand Medicaid…

“I said no, because if I took the Medicaid expansion I’d be dependent on the same federal government that can’t get a basic website up and going even after two and a half years to come through with payments for Medicaid in the future when they start weaning off paying for 100 percent of coverage.”

And here’s how conservative Republican Gov. Rick Perry of Texas explains his own opposition to expanding Medicaid…

“It’s like putting 1,000 more people on the Titanic when you knew what was going to happen.”

Added conservative Republican Gov. Nikki Haley of South Carolina on the matter…

“We didn’t just say no, we said never.”

Noted U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, Kentucky Republican…

“Many Republican governors I would say are conservative did resist expanding and accepting Obamacare in their states.”

Nevada Republican governor Brian “BS” Sandoval (R&R-Partners) expanded Medicaid, with the aid-and-comfort of all but four conservative GOP state legislators. Bring on Conservageddon!
