"Docs4PatientCare.org is a politically neutral grassroots coalition of physicians. Use of any politically partisan terms does not reflect the position of Docs4PatientCare.org. We do encourage our speakers to express how they feel and we post articles based on their informative content only. Any politically partisan language used does not reflect the group as a whole. Specific party or political allegiances and opposition are not our intent. The goal of D4PC is only to advocate for effective and responsible health care reform."
Texas Govenror Rick Perry announced last week that Texas would not be implementing the Medicaid expansions of ObamaCare or create an ObamaCare exchange. As D4PC has previously explained, all of the people who will gain health insurnace under ObamaCare will do so either through a government program (Medicaid) or government subsidies (the exchanges) and not through market-based, patient-centered reforms that will lower costs and make insurance more afforable.
By pushing back against the central areas of government expansion, as Texas is doing, there is an increasing liklihood that ObamaCare can be repealed and replaced. More states should follow Texas' lead.
