Dear Cleveland Patriots,
Governor Kasich’s is expected to release his budget on February 4th. Besides outlining a new way to fund schools in Ohio, facing unrelenting pressure from the left, many signs are pointing to the possibility that Governor Kasich may expand Medicaid/Medicare in Ohio as part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).
The Greater Cleveland Congregations recently held a rally with over 1,000 attendees in support of expanding Medicaid coverage in Ohio. The Greater Cleveland Congregations is led by Ari Lipman, an award- winning, left wing radical and supporter of Obamacare.
Along with being the brain trust of the Greater Cleveland Congregations, Lipman is also the Executive Director of Ohio Industrial Areas Foundation, a left-wing radical group founded by Saul Alinsky and registered affiliate of the Greater Cleveland Congregations.
This link (Click Here) will give you a greater understanding of all the left wing groups pushing for the expansion of Medicaid in Ohio and will hopefully show why it is so important that you contact Governor Kasich’s office immediately to counter their effort.
Call, email & write Governor Kasich’s Office and urge them not to expand Medicaid Coverage under Obamacare.

Here is a sample you can use to mail a quick postcard to Governor Kasich–
I am sending this postcard to express my opposition to Medicaid expansion. The belief that states will benefit from the Medicaid expansion assumes the federal government will provide a 100%, then 90% match for the Medicaid expansion populations. Considering the deep financial issues of the federal government, it is likely this federal contribution to Medicaid will be unfulfilled, and is nothing more than a lure to get states to buy into the Medicaid expansion. Once they do, they can expect that the federal match rate will fall. It’s a false lure that will cost states a bundle, especially with the looming immigration reform.
