SENATOR GREG BALL STATEMENT ON CUOMO’S HEALTH EXCHANGE

 

  Ball, “Obamacare Push Unwise”

“Any rush towards enacting Obamacare is more political than reality. The promise of federal funding is not without strings and the program itself will ultimately, if enacted, cost New York taxpayers billions of additional dollars that we do not have. Furthermore, with the fundamental constitutionality of the overall looming program in immediate question and the presidency hanging in the balance there is zero need to build an initial framework for a large and expensive government program that may never get off of the ground. We can and should make landmark reforms, including reigning in big insurance in New York, but moving forward now to enact Obamacare is simply not prudent.”
