Huelskamp Applauds Senator Roberts’ Health Care Vote
FOWLER – State Senator — and candidate for U.S. Congress — Tim Huelskamp today applauded U.S. Senator Pat Roberts for his committee vote against the public option proposal of the Obama Administration.
“The so-called public option is just a fancy way of saying big government wants more control over your health care,” said Huelskamp. “I applaud Senator Roberts for his vote against this big government grab in the U.S. Senate’s Finance Committee.”
Huelskamp, who authored the nation’s first transparency act, also applauded Roberts for requesting that the massive health care bill be posted on the Internet prior to any voting. “We’ve seen time and again that sunshine is the best disinfectant to poor policymaking. The American people deserve to have a chance to actually read a bill of this magnitude, which could nationalize one sixth of the U.S. economy, before Members of Congress vote on it,” said Huelskamp.
Huelskamp is a candidate in the 1st Congressional District of Kansas, and he is the only candidate who has signed the national letter opposing the “public option” proposal. He has been endorsed by a long list of state and national leaders, including the Club for Growth PAC, former Governor Mike Huckabee, Ken Blackwell, Kansans for Life, Concerned Women for America, Gun Owners of America, and dozens of his legislative colleagues.
