Whereas: Expanding Medicaid entitlements will cause irreparable long-term harm to Utah's economy; and
Whereas: Expanding socialized healthcare in Utah will create incentives to waste medical services, overburdening our limited hospitals and emergency rooms, creating shortages; and
Whereas: Expanding ObamaCare to able-bodied men and women who choose not to work encourages poverty; and
Whereas: ObamaCare expansion in Utah will create a "Welfare Cliff" and penalize those in the program who pursue work; and
Whereas: Governor Herbert is actively pressuring Republican legislators to expand ObamaCare over the objection of Utah taxpayers.
Therefore: I demand that Utah's Republican lawmakers stand strong against ObamaCare expansion.
