Chad Dewey Pledges to Block Michigan Obamacare Exchange
After the Supreme Court’s ruling stating that Obamacare is Constitutionally allowable, Chad Dewey pledges to block the Obamacare Exchange in Michigan.
“The Obamacare exchange passed the Michigan Senate in October, 2011 under SB 693. A quick look at the voting records at Michiganvotes.org shows 100% of Democrats are for it, 50% of Republicans are for it, and 100% of voters are against it.” says Dewey. “These typical politicians are not listening to what their constituents are clearly against and are not representing the voice of the people who voted them in.”
Dewey explains, “SB 693 passed the Senate, but fortunately it stalled in the House. However, we need to vote in people who are against this exchange that allows Obamacare to be easily implemented in Michigan. Passing this piece of legislation would put the burden of the cost of the exchange on Michigan taxpayers and then handing the exchange over to the federal government.” The CATO Institute report on Obamacare Exchanges for individual states supports Dewey’s claim that without Obamacare Exchanges created at the state level, it puts the cost of the exchanges on the Federal government, which would be unable to support the financial burden.
