Read some of the letters sent to McCarthy below:
Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R): "We support a single repeal-and-replace package, but are concerned that a strategy to repeal now then later replace the ACA could have serious consequences."
Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval (R): "I chose to expand the Medicaid Program, to require managed care for most enrollees and to implement a state based health insurance exchange. These decisions made healthcare accessible to many Nevadans who had never had coverage options before."
Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker (R): " Any changes to the Affordable Care Act must also take into account the impact changes would have on the Medicaid program…Proposals that suggest states may be provided with more flexibility and control must not result in substantial and destabilizing cost shift to states."
Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R): “We encourage you to look to Arkansas Works, our state’s new innovative approach to Medicaid expansion, as a model for programs that help individuals move up the economic ladder and off of Medicaid, while smoothing the transition into the commercial market.”
Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley (R): "Repealing the Affordable Care Act without a clear replacement could raise concerns among insurers nationwide and cause some to withdraw from the market, limiting consumer choice."
