Okla. not doing enough to fight cancer, group says

(Continued)

ENID, Okla. —

Fallin opposed the expansion last year, saying at the time it could cost Oklahoma hundreds of millions of dollars during the first six years of expansion. Weintz said the issue is not about whether it’s a good idea. Rather, he said, it’s about being fiscally responsible so other key areas of government aren’t affected.

"Absolutely we want to expand access to affordable care in Oklahoma. We want to reduce or at least contain health care costs. But the health issue as a state that we're facing is obesity and smoking," he said.
