July 13-- Two Republican candidates in the 12th Congressional Republican Prmary July 31 are criticizing Congressman John Barrow for voting against repeal of Obamacare this week.
Both Wright McLeod of Augusta and Maria Sheffield of Dublin released statements calling Barrow to task for his vote.
Wright McLeod, Republican candidate for Georgia’s 12th Congressional District, today blasted John Barrow for his vote against repealing ObamaCare.
“Congressman Barrow continues to ignore the wishes of 12th District voters by voting against repeal of ObamaCare. He’s not interested in representing us, and that is everything that is wrong with Washington, D.C. today,” said McLeod.
“I still believe it is unconstitutional for the government to force Americans to purchase health insurance, and I will do everything in my power once elected to repeal ObamaCare and inject more capitalism into the American health industry,” said McLeod.
Congressional Roll Call Votes show that Barrow voted against final passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act – better known as ObamaCare – on March 21, 2010; voted against repeal on January 19, 2011; and again voted against repeal on July 11, 2012.
McLeod has signed the Independent Women’s Voice Repeal Pledge and released a commercial promising to introduce legislation to repeal ObamaCare once elected. He is endorsed by FreedomWorks, Combat Veterans for Congress, and Georgia Right to Life.
The Sheffield campaign released the following.
Congressman John Barrow on ObamaCare: Flip. Flop. Fail.
John Barrow Supports Largest Tax Increase in History
Trying to be all things to all people, John Barrow has proven to be nothing to everyone
First, Congressman John Barrow promised President Obama he was working “hand-in-hand” with him. Then, he was against ObamaCare. FLIP.
Today John Barrow is for ObamaCare. FLOP.
Congressman John Barrow has voted for the largest tax increase in history while demonstrating the only thing he cares about is his personal, political career. FAIL.
Congressman John Barrow can’t be trusted to take a consistent position – or a position of integrity – on important issues. Except, when comes to supporting the largest tax increase in history and attacking healthcare freedom in America.
This is the most egregious example of the John Barrow Washington Double-Talk Two Step.
In trying to be all things to all people, John Barrow has proven to be nothing to everyone.
Instead of standing with honor and telling Georgia what he stands for – John Barrow has shown Georgia we simply cannot trust him.
Honest Americans can be for or against ObamaCare – but only a self-absorbed, career politician can vote no and yes – on the exact same issue.
The people of GA 12 – Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, or Independent cannot trust John Barrow.
