Mike DeWine: A threat to Ohioans' health care

Mike DeWine’s ongoing assault on health care is a threat to Ohioans. These attacks include…

… launching a politically-motivated lawsuit to end the Affordable Care Act.

Mike DeWine’s lawsuit not only threatened Ohioans’ access to health insurance, but it wasted taxpayer dollars. 

… calling the Affordable Care Act a “disaster.”

Repealing the Affordable Care Act — and with it, Ohio’s Medicaid expansion — could cost Ohio more than 81,000 jobs, jeopardize nearly 1 million Ohioans’ health care coverage, and leave more than 220,000 Ohioans with mental illness or substance use disorders without insurance.

 

Mike DeWine talks out of both sides of his mouth when it comes to the Medicaid expansion.

First, Mike DeWine publicly said that Ohio’s Medicaid expansion “has done a lot of good

Only to flip-flop and say that he’s “against Obamacare, this is part of Obamacare.”

… Then, DeWine’s campaign “didn’t respond to a question about whether DeWine would preserve Ohio’s Medicaid expansion

Now, DeWine has FLIP-FLOPPED again and says he’ll keep it with changes.

One thing is clear: We can’t trust Mike DeWine, and his political opportunism is a threat to Medicaid.

Ohio’s Medicaid expansion has helped hundreds of thousands of Ohioans gain access to health coverage, including coverage for opioid addiction treatment.

Repealing the Affordable Care Act and ending Medicaid expansion could put 1 in 4 Ohio hospitals at risk of closure. Rural hospitals would be hit particularly hard.
