Ohio’s state budget puts $2000 or more in new federal debt on each of Ohio’s children to pay for health care for single adults


Stop Medicaid Expansion


Gov. John Kasich’s Medicaid Expansion has added 500,000 single adults to Medicaid. This is being paid for with federal debt, not with state tax revenues. The cost of this is $2-3 billion a year of new federal debt. There are 2-3 million children in Ohio. Thus, the federal debt to pay for this is increasing about $1000 EACH YEAR for EACH child in Ohio. Gov. Kasich calls this “free” money. This is not Christian, putting children in debt to pay for single adults.

The Republicans in the Ohio House have voted to endorse this by keeping the authorization for Medicaid Expansion in the proposed state budget. Thus, the Republicans in the Ohio House are adding $2000+ to each Ohio child’s federal debt burden by voting for the state budget. There is no way to rationalize what they are doing. Anyone voting for the budget has made this clear moral choice to put our children in debt to protect their political career.

RINOs favor more federal debt and bigger government to accrue personal political power. This is a very good example of this. And they are doing this so our children pay for the health care of single adults when the legislature didn’t have the guts to raise taxes to pay for it because they couldn’t justify raising taxes to pay for single adults.
