ALG applauds Maine challenge to Obamacare coercion

Aug. 3, 2012, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson applauds the state of Maine for challenging the Obama Administration on Medicaid funding:

"The state of Maine is taking the right step in boldly challenging the Obama Administration's threat to cut off all federal Medicaid funding due to the state's decision to lower their Medicaid liabilities. The Supreme Court got one thing right in the much-maligned Obamacare ruling by Chief Justice Roberts: the states cannot be coerced into accepting escalating Medicaid costs by the federal government.

"Maine Governor Paul LePage is smartly taking the state flexibility that seven Justices affirmed and applying it to other aspects of Obamacare's Medicaid requirements. 

"It is time for every state to join Maine in declaring their right to determine their own Medicaid eligibility requirements without coercion from Obama and his Washington, D.C., cronies."
