Kansas to Obama: Keep the Money

ARRA News Editor: Folks The following article is great news. But let's also review some modern Kansas political history which is also interesting. Recall that Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius (BIG-D-OBAMA-SUPPORTER) was the former Governor of Kansas from January 13, 2003 – April 28, 2009 before she climbed aboard the Obama train wreck in Washington as a key ObamaCare advocate.

Her seat as Governor was filled (April 28, 2009 – January 10, 2011) by then Democrat Lt Governor Mark V. Parkinson who had been a RINO and had served as Chairman of the Kansas Republican Party (1999 to 2003). In May 2006, Governor Kathleen Sebelius announced that Parkinson had switched to being a DemocRat and was her running mate for her reelection campaign. Interestingly, Parkinson had previously called Sebelius a "left-wing liberal Democrat" and claimed that any Republicans who supported her were "either insincere or uninformed." However, overcome by the object of his disaffection or at least some kool-aid, Parkinson joined femme fatale Sebelius.

Kansas having had enough of Benedict Arnold Parkinson, the Kansas voters replaced him with Republican Gov. Sam Brownback, a former Kansas US Representative and Kansas US Senator. Now the "worm turns" as detailed in the following article. Gov. Brownback has rejected DHHS Secretary and former Kansas Governor Sebelius' grant of #31 million to implement ObamaCare in Kansas. Kansas is also part of a 26-state federal lawsuit to overturn ObamaCare.

Thank you Kansas, Oklahoma and the other State Governors who have done what needed. The Untied States is broke! We do not have $31 million for Kansas, $54.6 million for Oklahoma and billions for all the other state to implement Obamacare.

Unfortunately there are a number of governors, like Arkansas Gov. Mike Beebe BIG-D-OBAMA-SEBELIUS-SUPPORTER), who need to wake-up to the fact that mandating the purchasing of insurance is in itself unconstitutional. ObamaCare need to be repealed!

by Karla Dial, Citizen Link: After receiving $31.5 million from the Obama administration in February, Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback announced it would be returned, saying there were too many strings attached.

The grant was awarded to Kansas as one of six “early innovators” that were developing insurance exchange models other states could follow when ObamaCare — the federal law requiring consumers to buy health insurance or pay a penalty — is fully implemented. But Brownback — who voted against the bill in the U.S. Senate and campaigned for the governor’s office saying he’d block it — said Kansas would be better off developing its own.

“There is much uncertainty surrounding the ability of the federal government to meet its already budgeted future spending obligations. Every state should be preparing for fewer federal resources, not more,” he said. “To deal with that reality, Kansas needs to maintain maximum flexibility. That requires freeing Kansas from the strings attached to the Early Innovator Grant.”
Pressure is growing among Republicans to block the federal health care law’s implementation. Kansas is part of a 26-state federal lawsuit to overturn ObamaCare.

Oklahoma rejected its $54.6 million grant in April.

Since Governor Beebe and Dustin McDaniel fought so hard against our bill in this session to ban any law requiring Arkansans to buy health insurance and then fought so hard to implement Obamacare here in Arkansas, please forward or copy and paste that email we sent you to Governor Beebe and AG Dustin McDaniel at the email addresses below. Both of them also refused to join the other states that challenged Obamacare in court.
