Rep. Yarmuth Statement on Gov. Bevin's Plan to Dismantle Kentucky's Successful Medicaid Expansion

LOUISVILLE – Today, Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-3) released the statement below following the submission of Governor Matt Bevin’s plan to dismantle Kentucky’s successful Medicaid expansion:

"Governor Bevin has submitted a Medicaid waiver proposal that the Federal government legally cannot approve. Once they deny it, he will terminate our Medicaid expansion and attempt to blame President Obama when Kentucky families lose their coverage. I strongly oppose the Governor's shortsighted waiver request and, given the serious consequences for hundreds of thousands of Kentucky families, I'm not surprised he lacks the courage to be upfront about it."
