Wesco Concerned About Cost to Indiana of Federal Health Care

On Wednesday, the Secretary of the Family & Social Services Administration and the acting state Insurance Commissioner publicly released a memo they had sent to Governor Daniels earlier in the week outlining the cost of federal health care reform in Indiana. Based on both independent and internal analysis, the memo stated that Indiana taxpayers must foot the bill for between $3 billion and $3.7 billion in federally mandated state-level health care spending over the next ten years. - Timothy Wesco

Wesco Stands with Arizona

"Our states and local governments are feeling the consequences of pathetic federal inaction.  It is time for bold laws on the part of our state legislatures across this nation to give our local communities the tools they need to preserve law and order and to stand up to Washington, D.C., for not enforcing its own laws. I support Arizona and its immigration law and will work for similar legislation in Indiana."  -Timothy Wesco
