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