Abortion: No! Human life is sacred.
Obamacare: No! Let individuals choose, not the Federal government.
A coordinated effort by my opponent, or his supporters, to spread false and distorted information through editorials, phone calls, and texts is afoot today in Nampa. As often happens, some people turn to negative and misleading campaigning to sow doubt. For those who know me they understand how absurd it is that I, a religious, small business owner in health care, would advocate for abortion or Obamacare.
The issue to which these folks refer is a letter that I, and hundreds of other health care providers and small businesses, signed back in 2012. This was a federal law that we could not control, but we could stand up and speak for Idaho business and health care. Which we did.
WE DID NOT WANT FEDERAL CONTROL OF HEALTH CARE. This was a 10th Amendment issue that allowed for individual freedom for Idahoans to voluntarily choose their own coverage in the face of looming federal controls. No doubt about it, this was a local solution to bad federal policy. It was either Idaho runs it, or the Federal government takes over. This was not support for Obamacare or abortion.
I hope that the candidate will honorably disavow the negative and misleading attacks and let politics be about his positions.
