Tulsa County GOP Criticizes Fallin

The Tulsa County Republican Party has taken issue with Republican Governor Mary Fallin and the GOP legislative leadership over a $54 million dollar federal grant tied to Obamacare.

Oklahoma was awarded one of seven Early Innovator grants to development information technology systems for implementing insurance exchanges.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said the exchanges "will help individuals and small employers shop for, select, and enroll in high-quality, affordable private health plans that fit their individual needs at competitive prices."

The Tulsa County GOP's emailed statement criticizes party leadership, writing that "'ObamaCare' and the stimulus money are putting our children and grandchildren into a bottomless pit of debt, is unconstitutional and not right for Oklahoma."

Chair of the Tulsa County GOP is Sally Bell.
