3rd Dist GOP opposes Obamacare Medicaid expansion | Eastern North Carolina Now | unanimous vote by executive committee against plan

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

RINO legislative leaders Phil Berger and Tim Moore are in cahoots with far left Governor Roy Cooper and the Democrats to try to pass the Obamacare Medicaid expansion in North Carolina.  Last session, Berger rammed it through the state Senate, but despite Moore's fancy footwork in the House, it did not pass there yet.  The House Freedom Caucus, led by Rep. Keith Kidwell (R-Beaufort) led the opposition to it in the House.

Polling of voters show that rank and file Republican voters in North Carolina oppose the Obamacare Medicaid expansion.  Now party activists are also getting into the action in opposing it.

The executive committee of the Third Congressional District Republican Party yesterday unanimously passed a resolution opposing the Obamacare Medicaid expansion.  It thanked conservative State Senator Norm Sanderson (R-Pamlico) for voting against the bill in the Senate and expressed disappointment with the GOP senators who voted for it.

The leadership is expected to push the Obamacare Medicaid expansion yet again in a lame duck session in December.  Rep. Keith Kidwell is a principle leader in the fight against it in the House.  Senator Jim Perry (RINO-Kinston) is a top leader pushing for this left wing bill in the Senate (Perry will be Beaufort County's Senator after January).

Governor Cooper and the Democrats have long been trying to impose the Obamacare Medicaid expansion on North Carolina, costing our taxpayers and putting many who currently have employer provided insurance on the government dole instead. Republican legislative leaders seem on the verge of caving in to Cooper. Should NC pass the Obamacare Medicaid expansion?
  Yes, government should always expand the number of those on the dole
  No, Republican leaders would betray NC Republican voters to surrender to Roy Cooper on Obamacare Medicaid expansion
  Who cares. I just want free stuff.

Jim Perry does not seem to care what the "little people" think. He is all about the special interests. I read on another site that a delegation of party activists from Craven County went to Perry's office to ask him to vote against the Obamacare Medicaid expansion and part of what Perry told them was "I don't represent you." Craven County IS within Perry's new district, so that comment was apparently NOT based on geography but upon his distain for those who work in the GOP. The idea of writing in someone else on the Libertarian line on the November ballot is a good one.

Once Perry becomes our so called representative, it will be time to start calling and emailing him on what the people he represents want and it is not what he is voting for.
