AFP Ratchets Up Pressure To Stop Medicaid Expansion Under Obamacare
New Ads Will Air In Sioux Falls And Rapid City Encouraging Citizens To Contact Gov. Daugaard
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — Americans for Prosperity South Dakota will be going on the airwaves in Sioux Falls and Rapid City today with new advertisements ratcheting up the pressure on lawmakers to reject Medicaid Expansion under Obamacare as a part of next year’s budget.
The radio advertisements will air in the Sioux Falls and Rapid City markets encouraging citizens to contact Governor Daugaard in order to stop his Medicaid Expansion proposal which will increase the national debt by more than $400 million a year.
The ads may be heard at the link below:
State Director Ben Lee offered the following statement:
“States around the nation have taken President Obama’s siren call for Medicaid Expansion only to regret later when costs have surged out of control, putting their states at risk of tax increases or cuts to critical priorities like roads and schools. The Governor’s Medicaid Expansion proposal will increase the national debt by more than $373 million a year — it’s simply not right to shackle our children and grandchildren with that kind of debt. Accepting Medicaid Expansion under Obamacare bares serious risks and our new advertisements will help the public understand these dangers.”
The new radio ads come as the chapter and its volunteers have been placing thousands of calls and hundreds of letters to legislators encouraging members of the legislature to separate Medicaid Expansion from the state budget.
