Progress Iowa: Two Paycheck Terry Branstad should be ashamed for fundraising off denying health care

From Progress Iowa:

‘Two Paycheck’ Terry Branstad Should be Ashamed for Fundraising off His Denial of Health Coverage to Iowans

Des Moines, Iowa — Governor Terry Branstad sent a fundraising email Thursday morning, asking for $14 to ‘fight back’ against those who oppose his decision to reject health coverage for as many as 150,000 Iowans.

In response, Progress Iowa Executive Director Matt Sinovic issued the following statement:

“Terry Branstad should be ashamed of himself, and is proving yet again to be a typical politician in every negative sense of the word. Thousands of hard-working Iowa families live without the security of receiving quality health coverage they need because of Branstad’s stubborn, politically motivated refusal to expand Medicaid. Meanwhile, Two Paycheck Terry takes two salaries for doing one job, and has his health care provided by our tax dollars. Instead of fundraising off of the plight of his constituents, he should be doing something to fix the problem.”

Branstad has repeatedly refused to allow the expansion of Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act, which would give access to health coverage to thousands of Iowans, including as many as 5,000 Iowa veterans without access to care.
