Eighteen months after the plug was pulled on Ron Paul’s campaign, the Liberty Movement is in disarray. Without the unifying focus of a national campaign, the high level of activism ignited by Paul’s candidacy is gone.

Across the country, state policymakers are debating whether or not to implement the Affordable Care Act’s Medicaid expansion. So far, Oklahoma’s leaders have declined to expand Medicaid — a reasoned decision that we applaud.

However, proponents of Medicaid expansion in our state, such as hospitals and some businesses, argue the law includes “money on the table” for states, since under “Obamacare” the federal government says it would pay for 90 percent of the expansion population in perpetuity.

But a future Congress is not bound by current law; it can simply rewrite it. Congress has a history of overpromising funding for states, so it would be folly for states to build their budgets around a promise Congress is unlikely to keep.

Consider a policy analogy from education. In 1975, when Congress passed the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, Uncle Sam promised to pay 40 percent of each state’s costs. However, over the last two decades the federal government has paid less than half of what it originally promised. For the past decade, the shortfall has cost states nearly $175 billion.

In Washington, it’s an “open secret” that Congress has to reduce Medicaid outlays. That’s why virtually every major bipartisan plan includes recommendations to reduce the federal dollars given to states for Medicaid.

On September 19, 2013, Oklahoma Wesleyan University will be filing a lawsuit against the United States Department of Health and Human Services, as well as its director, Kathleen Sebelius. The premise of our suit is this, as an evangelical Christian university owned and operated by The Wesleyan Church of North America, OKWU cannot and will not comply with any provisions of the Affordable Care Act that require us to pay for abortion services or abortion inducing drugs.  More specifically, Oklahoma Wesleyan does not provide its employees with health insurance covering post-fertilization abortifacient drugs that, by definition, can and often do terminate pregnancy.
