ObamaCare opponent Rick Perry seeks $100 million in ObamaCare funds

Well isn’t this ironic?

Gov. Rick Perry wants to kill Obamacare dead, but Texas health officials are in talks with the Obama administration about accepting an estimated $100 million available through the health law to care for the elderly and disabled, POLITICO has learned.

Perry health aides are negotiating with the Obama administration on the terms of an optional Obamacare program that would allow Texas to claim stepped-up Medicaid funding for the care of people with disabilities.

I can’t wait to hear Gov. Perry explain his decision to accept federal ObamaCare dollars to the Tea Party base of the Republican Party in the 2016 Republican presidential primary.

  1. The only thing dumber than Perry’s hypocritical, politically self-aggrandizing scheming is Scott Walker’s abject refusal for real.

  2. For better or worse, they’ve already explained their point of view:

    “Long before Obamacare was forced on the American people, Texas was implementing policies to provide those with intellectual disabilities more community options to enable them to live more independent lives, at a lower cost to taxpayers,” Havens said in a statement. “The Texas Health and Human Services Commission will continue to move forward with these policies because they are right for our citizens and our state, regardless of whatever funding schemes may be found in Obamacare.”

    Question: Isn’t this what we want him to do? Hypocrisy not with-standing…are we upset that he may seek fed dollars for mentally disabled Texans?

  3. “Texas was implementing policies to provide those with intellectual disabilities more community options to enable them to live more independent lives…” Like electing one of them governor? Sorry, I had to let some of the pent up snark out.
