Thanks to our efforts and those of a strong coalition of free-market organizations across the state, state lawmakers passed a budget agreement last week that achieved AFP’s two biggest priorities: no tax rate hikes and no Medicaid expansion.
Since Obamacare’s inception, AFP has led the fight against Medicaid expansion in Oklahoma and in states across America. It’s a fight that isn’t over – some lawmakers are bound to try and burden taxpayers and entangle our state’s healthcare programs with Obamacare once again, and when they do, we’ll be there with our network of citizen activists to stand against it.
Victories like this show our grassroots efforts work. As AFP activists spread the word of economic freedom and inspire others to let their voices be heard, lawmakers at all levels of government will listen.
