Democratic Party Chair Statement on the Extension of Insure Oklahoma


Oklahoma City – Oklahoma Democratic Party Chair Wallace Collins issued the following statement today after Governor Mary Fallin flip-flopped on her anti-health care agenda and asked the federal government for a one-year extension of Insure Oklahoma:


“Oklahoma Democrats are still advocating for a permanent fix to the huge gap in health care affordability. We are relieved that Governor Fallin has asked President Obama for help, but if she had accepted the $54 million in federal dollars provided by the Affordable Care Act, for our state’s health insurance exchange, then she would not have had to deal with this emergency at the 11th hour. We look forward to discussing options for implementing a long-term solution.”
