ObamaCare: Hoosiers for Richard Mourdock Crticize Joe Donnelly
Hoosiers for Richard Mourdock Senate campaign say Donnelly has opportunity to clarify position on specifics before House repeal vote next week
INDIANAPOLIS, IN - The Hoosiers for Richard Mourdock Senate campaign criticized Congressman Joe Donnelly today for his continued “cherry-picking” response to ObamaCare questions.
According to them, Congressman Donnelly has opportunity to address specifics of healthcare legislation while in Indiana this week. The US House is scheduled to vote on ObamaCare repeal next week.
“Last week, the US Supreme Court ruled that ObamaCare’s individual mandate is a massive tax on Hoosiers. Yet, Congressman Joe Donnelly – who has recently reconfirmed his vote for ObamaCare – refuses to tell Hoosiers if he supports the tax or not, which fits his pattern of trying to have it both ways,” stated Mourdock spokesman Christopher Conner.
To date, Congressman Joe Donnelly has refused to answer questions about other ObamaCare specifics according to the Hoosiers for Richard Mourdock Senate campaign.
- Whether or not IPAB -- an unelected board of 15 bureaucrats -- should have the right to deny Hoosier seniors health care
- Whether or not the $500 billion cut from Medicare to pay for ObamaCare is fiscally responsible
- Whether or not the arbitrary rewarding of tax credits and penalties on small businesses for providing health care is the right approach
- Whether or not he has finally crafted a solution to Catholic organizations having to comply with ObamaCare HHS mandates regarding contraception
- Whether or not he will personally lobby the President to sign a House bill that will repeal the job-killing medical device tax that threatens a $10 billion Hoosier industry
Next week, the House is scheduled to have a floor vote on repealing ObamaCare after the 4th of July recess.
“Congressman Joe Donnelly needs to come clean with Hoosier and tell them if he will continue standing alongside President Obama and his massive tax increase or whether he will do what's right and vote to repeal the government takeover of health care," stated Conner.
