Brownback urged to sign health care compact to protect Kansan seniors

April 17, 2014, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Nathan Mehrens today issued the following statement again urging Kansas Republican Governor Sam Brownback to sign the health care compact to protect Kansan seniors:

“Under the current Obamacare law, seniors across the nation will feel the brunt of an upcoming $700 billion cut in Medicare.  Kansas Governor Sam Brownback has the opportunity to sign the Health Care Compact that is on his desk that will enable Kansas to determine how best to spend the allotted Medicare funds.  Scare tactics by AARP fronting for its marketing partner United HealthCare notwithstanding, failure to enact the law by the Governor will consign Kansas’ seniors to the catastrophic impact of the Obamacare cuts to senior health care.

“Americans for Limited Government strongly urges Governor Brownback to sign the Kansas Health Care Compact legislation that is on his desk. It is the only way to help protect seniors from the devastating impact of Washington, D.C.-directed cuts by giving local control back to the people of Kansas via their elected state representatives.”
