Phoenix, AZ (April 9) – U.S. Senate candidate J.D. Hayworth (R-AZ) pledged today that if he were in the Senate he would co-sponsor legislation S.3152 introduced by Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) to repeal ObamaCare that puts the free market healthcare system under the control of the federal government. Hayworth has already shown leadership in signing the Club for Growth repeal pledge at www.repealit.org a grassroots effort to rescue America from government run health care.
Hayworth said, “To this point, John McCain has done a lot of talking about the bill but has failed to take any real action. To date Mr. McCain has not co-sponsored the DeMint legislation or signed the Club for Growth petition. Therefore, we invite the Senator to step forward to co-sponsor the bill and sign the petition from Club for Growth just as over 350 other lawmakers and candidates have done.
“When elected to the U.S. Senate to represent the people of Arizona, I will be Arizona’s first line of defense and will be the first in line to sponsor and aggressively support such repeal legislation.”
Hayworth is challenging U.S. Senator John McCain in the Arizona Republican primary August 24th.
