DREW PUTS PEOPLE FIRST ON HEALTH CARE
Every Oklahoman should be free to choose the best health care for themselves.
Our governor’s decision to reject Medicaid expansion not only robbed tens of thousands of health care, it created an insurance monopoly that robbed Oklahomans of choice and let insurance companies set sky-high rates. It also crippled the ability of our state’s rural hospitals to provide care to low-income Oklahomans and put enormous pressure on local economies across the state.
On his first day as Governor, Drew Edmondson will reverse our legislature’s harmful decision to reject Medicaid expansion funds.
We need to bring both parties together and consider every option to make sure our health care market is competitive, affordable and working for our families, not insurance companies. To tackle out-of-control prescription costs, we will force the negotiation of price increases, sue companies that manipulate costs and import drugs from Canada when it is safe and effective to do so.
