Virginia Legislators Call Out Tim Kaine’s Broken Promises on ObamaCare

Virginia Right! participated in a conference call a short while ago with Congressman Robert Hurt, State Senator Steve Martin and Hanover State Delegate John Cox about the false promises that Tim Kaine pushed about lower health care costs with Obamacare. All three of these gentlemen offered their expertise on the subject and below are some portions of the discussion we had.


Henrico, VA – Today Congressman Robert Hurt and State Senator Steve Martin and Delegate John Cox, both small business owners, discussed on a press conference call Chairman Tim Kaine’s loyal support of Obamacare and the harmful impact it is having on Virginia families and small businesses.

On every significant issue, whether raising taxes in a recession, the failed $800 billion stimulus or Obamacare, Chairman Kaine has sided with President Obama rather than Virginians.

“The President’s health care law has produced devastating effects for Fifth District Virginians and all Americans since passage,” said Congressman Robert Hurt (VA-5).  “It has expanded the size of the federal government, imposed billions of dollars of new taxes on small businesses and individuals, and perpetuated an economy of stalled job creation at a time when far too many Fifth District Virginians are out of work.”
“Obamacare has placed a significant burden on America’s already struggling economy, hampering our small businesses freedom to invest and grow their companies,” said Delegate John Cox (R-Hanover).  “Thirty years ago I founded my own trucking company, building it from the ground up, and I understand the challenges small business owners are facing.  The taxes and regulations in Obamacare are driving up costs and destroying jobs. In these difficult economic times, the last thing we should be doing is penalizing businesses who take the risks to expand and hire employees.”

“As a small business owner, senior member on the Education and Health Committee and a member of the Health Care and Health Professions Subcommittees in the General Assembly, I have had the opportunity to hear from doctors, nurses, insurance companies and others about the state of our nation’s health care system,” said State Senator Steve Martin (R-Chesterfield).  “I am convinced that Obamacare represents not only a threat to the health care community, but a threat to our economy as well.  With unemployment stuck at above 8% for months on end, Obamacare is yet another impediment to job growth in a weak economy.   Chairman Kaine should know that the way to get small business growing again is by standing with Virginians against job-killing, big government mandates – not with President Obama and his Washington allies.”

Tim Kaine championed the $1.5 trillion government-run health care overhaul saying it would be a “great achievement” and doubled down on his support in last week’s debate saying Obamacare was “a big step forward.”  Independent research organizations like UBS, however, have labeled the bill an “impediment to hiring,” and Virginia small business owners have called it a “detriment to the incentive to grow and provide jobs.”

As Tim Kaine continues to defend President Obama and his failed policies, it is becoming clear to more and more Americans that Obamacare is neither reducing costs nor improving the economy like Tim Kaine said it would, in fact, it’s doing just the opposite.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
