" Maine Gov. Paul LePage (R) stated Wednesday his administration will not broaden Medicaid until the state locates a way to spend for it, a day after voters authorized a tally measure to widen the program.
" Credit report firms are forecasting that this fiscally untrustworthy Medicaid development will be ruinous to Maine's budget," LePage said in a declaration.
" For that reason, my administration will certainly not carry out Medicaid development up until it has actually been totally moneyed by the Legislature at the degrees [the Division of Health And Wellness and Person Solutions] has actually calculated, and also I will not support raising taxes on Maine families, raiding the nest egg or lowering services to our senior or disabled."
Maine voters on Tuesday approved a ballot step requiring the state to expand Medicaid under ObamaCare, the initial state to do so with a vote.
LePage, that is term-limited out of office next year, has formerly vetoed 5 Medicaid expansion bills gone by the state's legislature, arguing that such a step would certainly be tragic for the state's economic situation.
Maine's House Speaker Sara Gideon (D) stated in a statement that the legislature would carry out the Medicaid expansion procedure, and also will certainly combat the guv if he attempts to interfere.
" The legislature will move swiftly to fund Medicaid growth as required by regulation. The guv and also DHHS commissioner will implement its needs as well, as they are bound to do," Gideon claimed."
