Why, Travis, why?
In light of Rep. Childers' strong opposition to repealing the president's healthcare takeover, the Nunnelee campaign will today begin highlighting various provisions of the bill and asking why the congressman wants them to remain law.
Obamacare will establish an un-American "individual mandate," forcing North Mississippians to buy health insurance or face a huge fine enforced by the IRS:
"In 2014, everyone must purchase health insurance or face a $695 annual fine." (Jill Jackson and John Nolen, "Health Care Reform Bill Summary: A Look At What's in the Bill," CBS News "Political Hotsheet," 3/23/10)
And Congressman Travis Childers wants to keep it that way:
"Republican candidates for north Mississippi's U.S. House seat pledge to support attempts to repeal the new health care law. The man one of them will oppose on the Nov. 2 general election ballot terms their promises short-sighted and pure politics. ?Calls to repeal the bill are politically motivated,' U.S. Rep. Travis Childers said Wednesday. ?I voted against the bill. It's time we move forward in working to make it better.'" (Patsy Brumfield, "GOP's House candidates push repeal of new health care law," Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal, 3/26/10)
"Why, Travis, why?" ?
