Lamar Alexander voted for Obamacare, but said he didn’t
Lamar Alexander voted for Obamacare!
No amount of trickery can deny this fact. The man is not being forthright in his dealings with the citizens of TN and the United States.
A recent TV ad touted by the Alexander campaign shows Alexander banging it out with Obama on Obamacare in 2010. This is where the opposition ended.
He even stated he was right for this decision to oppose Obamacare. But sadly the ad failed to mention his continued funding of and support for the Presidents failed and highly unpopular policy on healthcare since that time.
Hiding these issues does not settle well with voters as eventually the truth surfaced and many turned their heads on a politician that speaks out of both sides of his mouth. It’s double talk and severely underestimates the citizens of TN and their ability to see through the lies and deception.
This deception seems to be the establishments plan for Alexander. He has recently also denied he voted for the Amnesty bill yet voted with the Gang of Eight to move it forward for a vote.
“The Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF) responded (recently) to the television ad released by the re-election campaign of U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN), which says he stood up to President Obama on Obamacare. Alexander’s TV ad includes a clip of an exchange he had with the President at the White House health care summit on February 25, 2010.
“However, it conveniently leaves out any mention of Alexander’s vote to fund the implementation of Obamacare on March 20, 2013. It also leaves out his support for the Wyden-Bennett health care bill, which included an unconstitutional individual mandate to force Americans to buy government-approved health insurance.”
“Lamar Alexander is doing everything he can to hide his liberal record on health care,”said SCF Executive Director Matt Hoskins. “He wants voters to think he’s fighting to stop Obamacare, but he supported the individual mandate and he voted for a bill that funded Obamacare earlier this year.”
The SCF reports that on “On August 2, 2007, Lamar Alexander cosponsored the Wyden-Bennett health care legislation, which included an individual mandate to force Americans to buy government-approved health insurance plans.”
“On March 20, 2013, Lamar Alexander voted in favor of the FY2013 continuing resolution, which included funding for the implementation of Obamacare!”
The SCF report further states “The U.S. Senate will vote on the FY2014 continuing resolution in September. Democratic Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) needs 60 votes to fund the implementation of Obamacare, but there are only 54 Democrats in the Senate. If Republicans like Lamar Alexander oppose it, they can stop it.”
“Lamar Alexander can’t have it both ways. If he votes to fund Obamacare, he’s for Obamacare.” added Hoskins. “He needs to stop misleading his constituents and pledge to oppose all funding for Obamacare.”
1) Lamar Alexander put on a dog and pony show for the cameras and showed a little opposition to Obamacare in 2010.
2) He voted to fund Obamacare in 2013.
3) He voted for the individual mandate.
4) He voted for the Wyden-Bennett health care bill, that forced you to buy healthcare insurance and the individual mandate.
5) He will more than likely vote to continue funding for Obamacare in September 2014.
5) Yes, he voted for Obamacare!!!
Hopefully, Liberal Lamar Alexander will be retired after this next primary and true conservative leadership will have been established.
Id give my vote to Joe Carr, if I were you.
