Democrat Richard Carmona Supported ObamaCare

Obama & Carmona’s Healthcare Law Raises Taxes, Kills Jobs and Hurts Arizonans

PHOENIX – After securing the Democrat nomination for U.S. Senate – thanks to the fact that he was personally recruited by President Obama – Arizonans are realizing that Richard Carmona was a fierce support of ObamaCare.

President Obama and Richard Carmona’s healthcare law cut $700 billion from Medicare, raised taxes on families and small business owners by over $500 billion and forced every Arizonan to purchase health insurance.

“As Arizonans get to know Democrat Richard Carmona, they’ll quickly realize that he supported President Obama’s healthcare law that cut Medicare and raised taxes on Arizonans,” said Arizona Republican Party spokesman Tim Sifert. “With nearly 250,000 unemployed Arizonans we need a Senator, like Jeff Flake, who is focused on creating jobs, instead of one like Carmona whose first priority is to defend ObamaCare.”

“Carmona served as the 17th surgeon general of the United States under President George W. Bush. Last year, he participated in series of health care town halls that the congresswoman held in Tucson, Sierra Vista and Green Valley. ‘The issue facing our country is how do we get the best care for the most people at the least cost,’ Carmona said. ‘We spend more for health care than any other nation on Earth, but the metrics of our results don’t reflect that. We need to move toward a health care system, not the sick care system that we have today. This legislation moves us closer to that. This bill is not perfect. But these are complex issues and we must move forward. And then I hope we can sit down with level heads and make it even better for the benefit of the American people.’” (“U.S. Rep.
