(From U. S. Senate candidate John Brunner)
Despite today's Supreme Court’s decision, the facts remain clear: Sen. Claire McCaskill was a deciding vote to ram the wildly unpopular ObamaCare through Congress and force its burdensome regulations and massive deficit increases on the American people.
With the Supreme Court’s failure to overturn ObamaCare, it is critical that conservative Republican leaders like John Brunner are elected to office that will join other leaders to fight to repeal ObamaCare and replace it with common sense, conservative, freedom of choice, market-based health care reforms.
Under Sen. Claire McCaskill and President Obama’s leadership, ObamaCare’s costs have skyrocketed to more than $2 trillion, up to 20 million Americans could lose their employer-based coverage, and its burdensome regulations and mandates are killing jobs and private sector growth.
The fact that a 2010 statewide vote to prohibit the government from requiring people to have health insurance, or penalizing them for not having insurance, passed with 71 percent support showed the distain that Missourians had with ObamaCare. But even with such an overwhelming majority of Missouri voters demanding repeal, Sen. Claire McCaskill remains steadfastly behind President Obama, choosing to preserve her 92% voting record with the President rather than represent the Missourians she was elected to serve.
“Today’s Supreme Court decision is very disappointing and underscores the critical nature of this election,” said Republican U.S. Senate Candidate John Brunner. “ObamaCare is fundamentally flawed and the absolute wrong approach to health care reform. As Missouri’s next citizen-senator, I will fight to repeal ObamaCare and replace it with sensible, market-driven solutions that will truly control costs and improve our health care system.”
