Statement by Gov. Perry Regarding President Obama’s Comments about Obamacare and Texas

Friday, February 14, 2014  •  Austin, Texas  •  Press Release

Gov. Rick Perry today issued the following statement regarding President Obama's comments in an interview with Univision Radio on Thursday about Obamacare and Texas:

"Obamacare has been a complete failure. Rather than pointing fingers, President Obama should scrap his failed system and give states the flexibility they need to ensure people have long-term access to quality care. Medicaid is a broken system -- a fact President Obama has conceded in the past -- and pouring millions more people into a system that's already creaking from the strain is far from a long-term solution. Obamacare has resulted in millions losing the coverage President Obama promised they could keep, and that isn't Texas' fault."
