    Michigan AFP Director Responds To SOTU

    Michigan Americans For Prosperity director Scott Hagerstrom comments on last night's SOTU.

    Given the current debate on what to do about the Health Care Exchanges, Medicaid, and money like manna from Washington Hagerstrom's comments are to the point.  He tells RightMichigan.com:

    "President Obama delivered more empty promises on health care reform last night. What he wants to call the Affordable Care Act is anything but. Despite all evidence to the contrary, he claimed the law was already helping to slow rising health care costs. In reality, the president's plans are putting high-quality, affordable health care even further out of reach for many Americans. The legislature should turn down a grant from the feds to build a health insurance exchange. It is poisoned candy that will only subject Michigan taxpayers to the byzantine regulations and unworkable costs associated with this law.

    Similarly, expanding Medicaid under Obamacare will push even more people onto a broken system that often leads to worse health outcomes than having no insurance at all. In Michigan, nearly 1 in 5 doctors refuses to even see new patients on that failing plan. The federal money to fund more Medicaid will likely dry up, eventually leaving Michiganders to foot the bill once again.

    The reduction of professionals who wish to partner with an ever increasing regulatory bureaucracy will indeed show itself with the reduction of health care choices over time.  Count on it.

    Noting the willingness of Obama to push the taking of our liberties to the limit, Hagerstrom demonstrates confidence in those who are paying attention here in Michigan.

    In his State of the Union Address, President Obama promised his next round of health care reforms will "go even further." If it's more "government-knows-best" bureaucracy and bottomless spending, Michiganders are saying thanks but no thanks.
    Pretty much.
