Angle Campaign Releases Statement On ObamaCare

Sharron Angle for Senate Spokesman Jerry Stacy released the following statement today in reference to HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius’s visit to Las Vegas to promote ObamaCare on behalf of Harry Reid.

“First Harry Reid rammed through ObamaCare against the wishes of the people and now he’s actually campaigning on this monstrosity,” said Jerry Stacy. “Sharron Angle sides with the citizens of Nevada and strongly supports repealing and replacing ObamaCare while Harry Reid has totally ignored Nevadans in order to please President Obama. It’s clear that at this point Harry Reid doesn’t believe he works for the people of Nevada, he works for President Obama. We need a Senator who works for us. That’s Sharron Angle.”

A Majority Of Nevadans Oppose Senator Reid’s Health Care Bill:

“An Identical 62% Of Nevadans Also Think It Would Be A Good Thing If President Obama’s Recently Signed Healthcare Legislation Was Repealed.” (“Poll News For Nevada’s Democrat Harry Reid: 62% There Don’t Like Incumbents Or The Healthcare Bill,” LA Times, Top Of The Ticket Blog, 4/5/10)

“Forty-Three Percent (43%) Of Voters In The State Favor The Requirement In The New National Health Care Bill That Every American Must Buy Or Obtain Health Insurance. Fifty-Five Percent (55%) Oppose That Requirement. This Includes 25% Who Strongly Favor It And 44% Who Are Strongly Opposed.” (Rasmussen Reports, 8/18/10)

“53 Percent, Who Oppose The Law While Only 39 Percent Support It, According To The Poll.” “Angle also has vowed to join GOP efforts to repeal the health care law that was Reid’s centerpiece achievement for President Barack Obama last year. Here she’s with a majority of Nevada voters, or 53 percent, who oppose the law while only 39 percent support it, according to the poll. That compares to 52-38 percent two weeks ago, suggesting Reid’s efforts to sell the reform hasn’t worked.” (“Angle, Reid race still tight,” Las Vegas Review-Journal, 8/13/10)

“Fifty-Four Percent (54%) Of Nevada Voters Favor Repeal Of The Health Care Plan, comparable to findings nationally. Forty-three percent (43%) oppose repeal. This includes 46% who Strongly Favor repeal and 33% who are Strongly Opposed.” (Rasmussen Reports, 7/13/10)

“Fifty-Three Percent (53%) Of Nevada Voters Favor Repeal Of That Bill, while 42% oppose repeal. This includes 45% who Strongly Favor repeal and 33% who are Strongly Opposed.” (Rasmussen Reports, 6/24/10)

Senator Reid Said Those Who Dislike The Health Care Bill Must Not Understand It:

Reid Recently Said That Those Who Dislike The Health Care Bill Must “Have A Lack Of Understanding.” “Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) responded today to a Missouri vote that Republicans call a rebuke to the sweeping new health law by saying voters like the legislation better the more they know more about it. . . . ‘It’s very obvious that people have a lack of understanding of our health care reform bill,’ Reid said. ‘The more people learn about this bill, the more they like it.’ He noted that the health insurance ‘exchanges,’ or marketplaces, will take three years to kick in. Reid cited recent polls suggesting that the health law is becoming more popular, though a significant number of Americans still oppose it. ‘The trend is turning all over America today,’ Reid said. ‘Once you explain what’s in the bill, the American people of course like it.'” (Naftali Bendavid, “Reid: Voters Like Health Law If They Understand It,” Wall Street Journal’s Washington Wire Blog, 8/4/10)
