Ambushed by HaleyCare

In the middle of an intense battle to protect our state from ObamaCare, our flank is ambushed by Governor Haley.

The State newspaper reported Wednesday that new expansion of state medical programs was introduced Wednesday by House Republicans and supported by Governor Haley.

Haley’s communications director is quoted as saying, “This is a strong plan focused on targeting hotspots of poor health in South Carolina.”

The State itemizes HaleyCare with $83 million in new spending mostly aimed at state hospitals.

Does that ring a bell with anyone?

Remember, Haley was the subject of a House Ethics committee investigation last year for accusations that she used her position as a sitting House member to benefit her employer . . .  Lexington Medical Center . . .  a large hospital system in the Midlands.


And now Governor Haley wants to saddle us with more government spending on medical programs?

Does anyone want HaleyCare or ObamaCare?

Remember how she railed against ObamaCare?  Now we know she was secretly plotting her own HaleyCare at the same time!

Enough is enough!

The State reports that, “The proposal is part of the state’s $23 billion budget but would not spend any new money. Instead, it would pay for it using $62 million the state Department of Health and Human Services received last year but did not spend.”

$83 million in spending to be paid for with $62 million of last year’s excess . . .  with no new spending?

Someone can’t do simple math!

And isn’t that the problem?

No one in government can!

Besides, how about the novel idea of letting unspent money remain unspent?

Can anyone in government do that?

Call Governor Haley at (803) 734-2100 and tell her we are not interested in HaleyCare or ObamaCare!

And call your Representative and tell them the same thing!
