VIDEO: Scott Wagner Would Strip Health Care from Pennsylvanians Suffering from the Opioid Epidemic

Pennsylvania – Scott Wagner has publicly declared that he supports rolling back Medicaid expansion, which would be disastrous for Pennsylvanians suffering from substance use disorder. Medicaid expansion provides healthcare for over 720,000 Pennsylvanians, including over 125,000 people who are suffering from substance use disorder.

“As governor, Scott Wagner would deny treatment to those suffering from opioid addiction,” said Beth Melena, communications director for Tom Wolf for Governor. “Scott Wagner is the very worst of Harrisburg. He would rather give handouts to insurance companies than help people suffering from substance use disorder get the treatment they need. It’s despicable that Scott Wagner would put big insurance ahead of the health of Pennsylvanians.”
