  “The people of Alabama have spoken, and I am glad that Medicaid will avoid disaster for at least one more year. But the problem has not gone away, and if we do not act soon, we will be right back here in three years.

‘We cannot pass the buck again. When legislators return to Montgomery, House Democrats are going to demand that the first bill we pass be legislation to require the borrowed money be paid back in full.

“We are also going to demand that the leadership propose a long-term solution to this problem so that we do not end up right back here in three years. It is time for the Republican leadership in Montgomery to do their job and lead.

‘We have options. It’s just a matter of whether or not the Republicans in Montgomery have the courage to lead.”
