Statements about Medicaid

"There’s $30 billion in expansion funds that we’ve paid – it’s our money and Nathan Deal wants Washington to keep it."

Georgia has recovered more than $60 million that was lost to Medicaid fraud

"Georgia has the fifth-highest number of uninsured people of any state in the union."  

"Georgia has lost 14 percent of its jobs paying more than $50,000 a year and added 15 percent to its Medicaid rolls during the recovery."

Medicaid spending declined by 1.9 percent in 2012, the second such decline in 47 years.

Funding the federal health care law without a tax hike will "require the state to cut nearly a quarter of its annual budget."
