A Statement from the Ohio Christian Alliance on Medicaid Expansion Freeze

In order to safeguard the Medicaid program for those Ohioans who truly need it. the elderly, the disabled, and the poor, restraints have to be put on the program now. Governor Kasich and the controlling board in 2013 expanded Medicaid to include able-bodied, working individuals who truly can pay their own way. The Governor originally said that only a few hundred thousand people would be added to the rolls; since he made that claim the amount has tripled. Without the freeze, it is estimated that another half million could enter the program.The reality is that able-bodied, working-age adults are being put ahead of 60,000 disabled Ohioans who rely on Medicaid but are currently on a waiting list. This is morally wrong and financially unsustainable. Therefore, we are calling on the Ohio General Assembly to override Governor Kasich's veto on the Medicaid expansion freeze.
