Bohlinger calls for "Special Session" to fix Obamacare issues

Posted: Updated:

Today the former Lt. Governor and Senate candidate John Bohlinger held a press conference at his home in Helena to address the Obamacare crisis by holding a special session and expanding Medicaid.

Bohlinger opened the press conference today stating that it is the 50 day since the start of the health care exchange and to date just over two and a half thousand Montanans are enrolled. Bohlinger is urging Governor Steve Bullock to call for a special session to address the Obamacare situation and to implement an expansion of Medicaid.

"Now the expansion of Medicaid will cost will be paid for by a grant from the federal government that amounted to $1.5 billion, now this money will be used to provide healthcare for 70,000 uninsured Montanans." says Bohlinger.

Bohlinger believes that the expansion of Medicaid will lead to another 12,000 good healthcare paying jobs and give Montanans the access to the popular state health clinics that was started by the state administration.
