Last night [Thursday night], Congressman Braley proved once again that he cares more about his campaign to become your next United States Senator than he does about the hard working families in Iowa. Why else would he choose to turn his back on the very families he is campaigning to represent by voting against the individual mandate.
In reaction to the Congressman’s vote, Sam Clovis released the following statement:
“Yesterday, Congressman Braley put his own interests over the interests of Iowan families. The Congressman appears to be one of the last people to come to grips with the fact that Obamacare, scratch that, BraleyCare is an utter disaster. Conservatives warned about it, the Unions are sending letters about it and even 22 Democrats voted to delay the individual mandate yesterday. I am running for the United States Senate to solve problems for Iowans, not to create them as Congressman Braley has done. I pledge to fight tooth and nail to repeal or defund BraleyCare and put Iowans back in control of their health care, not bureaucrats in Washington.”
Here is just a sample of some of Congressman Braley’s past statements on Braleycare:
“I was proud to help pass the Affordable Care Act, which will decrease health insurance costs, expand access to quality, affordable health care, improve reimbursements for Iowa medical providers and allow Americans to maintain their choice of health insurance.” (U.S. Congressman Bruce Braley, Accessed 7/15/13)
Braley Said The Health Care Law Would Be Good For Iowa. BRALEY: “After reading the bill, listening to my constituents and debating the bill’s provisions in Congress, I’m convinced this legislation is good for Iowa.” (Rep. Bruce Braley, “Braley Statement on House Passage of Health Care Reform,” Press Release, 3/21/10)
