Out of Touch Alert: Sen. Cochran Admits to Giving Up on Fighting Obamacare
Laurel, MS – In a stunning article in Breitbart News today, Sen. Cochran has admitted that he has given up on fighting against Obamacare, demonstrating once again that he is out of touch with hardworking Mississippians.
According to Breitbart News:
In a video posted late Wednesday, two other prominent Mississippi Tea Party activists said Cocrhan told them in a 2012 meeting at his office in Washington, D.C. that repealing Obamacare was a lost battle… Cindy Wilkerson, another Tea Party activist who also met with Cochran that day, also appears in this video describing Cochran’s alleged defense of Obamacare. “Thad Cochran told me that ‘fighting Obamacare would be a lost cause,’” Wilkerson says in the video.
“It is sad and astonishing that Senator Cochran has refused to fight against Obamacare and has told his constituents that he has simply given up,” said Chris McDaniel. “While other Republicans have voted to defund Obamacare and joined in a lawsuit against Obamacare, Sen. Cochran has stood on the sidelines. Mississippians deserve a leader who is willing to stand up and fight for them.”
In strong contrast to Sen. Cochran, Chris McDaniel volunteered his time to serve as lead counsel in Mississippi’s legal challenge to Obamacare. It is no surprise that Sen. Cochran has refused to debate McDaniel.
Chris McDaniel is a constitutional conservative running for United States Senate. He represents District 42 in the Mississippi State Senate in his second term where he fights for individual liberty, free markets and fiscal responsibility in government.
