SCGOP: Sheheen-Obamacare Wrong For SC
As the October Obamacare compliance deadline creeps closer, momentum continues to build against the health care takeover’s expansion in South Carolina. Unfortunately, liberal Vince Sheheen continues to embrace the federal spending disaster against the wishes of South Carolinians.
Here’s what folks all across South Carolina are saying about the Sheheen-Obama health care expansion:
“Even if the new system meets the specifications of federal law, it will represent a new level of federal intrusion into personal privacy.” (Editorial, “Data Hub: New ObamaCare Risk From Intrusive Feds”,The Post and Courier, 8/20/13)
“The middle class will pay, pay, and pay some more.” (Susan Keefe, “LETTER TO THE EDITOR: ObamaCare Is No Deal For The Country’s Middle Class”, The Morning News, 8/13/13)
“We need more certainty and confidence in our health care system…I’m just not feeling that with Obamacare.” (ACE Glass Owner Fred Price, Press Conference, 8/13/13)
“I’ve got employees that have been with me for over 30 years and I certainly need to take care of them but the costs are just escalating way too high.” (ACE Glass Owner Fred Price, Press Conference, 8/13/13)
“It’s an enormous task for the federal government to try to basically create an entire new health care purchasing structure in such a tight timeline.”(Lauren Sausser, “Health Care Coalition, State Agencies Brainstorm Ways To Prepare South Carolina For Affordable Care Act, The Post And Courier, 8/14/13)
“I had 53 employees. Unfortunately, four people lost their jobs last month so my company could get under the magical 50 threshold that Obamacare obtusely and indirectly dictates.” (Tom Price, Opinion, “Wednesday Letters: Obamacare Hurts Small Businesses”, The State, 8/7/13)
South Carolina Republican Party Chairman Matt Moore issued the following comments regarding the October deadline:
“The Sheheen-Obama health care disaster will hit South Carolinians where it hurts: higher premiums, more regulation, less take-home pay, and growing uncertanity for both businesses and families. Vince Sheheen’s unabashed support for Obama’s massive health care nightmare, on the eve of its implementation, is just another example that he is too liberal for South Carolina.”
