On behalf of Oklahomans Decide Healthcare, campaign spokesperson Amber England released the following statement today following a hearing before the Oklahoma Supreme Court. During the hearing, Medicaid expansion opponents argued that Oklahomans shouldn’t be allowed to vote on the issue.

“It’s clear opponents of Medicaid expansion don’t think they can win in the court of public opinion.

“What you see here is a deliberate effort to deny Oklahoma voters from having a say and to slow the momentum behind our campaign to help save rural hospitals and to make affordable healthcare a reality for nearly 200,000 Oklahomans. It will not work.

“We are confident we’ll overcome any and all roadblocks placed in front of us and proceed with signature collection in time to make the 2020 ballot.”
