Councilman Dan Halloran, the Republican councilman who will face off against Democratic Assemblyman Grace Meng in November to represent Queens’ 6th District in the House released a new campaign video on YouTube this morning blasting President Barack Obama’s healthcare reform law.
“When ObamaCare was passed in 2009, we were lied to. This new tax is the biggest in our country’s history, and it doesn’t take on the real problems of the health care industry,” Mr. Halloran says in the clip.
Standing in front of New York Hospital in Queens, Mr. Halloran says the recent Supreme Court decision upholding the healthcare law shows the need to elect candidates like him who want to stop “Obamacare.”
“The Supreme Court’s recent decision proves that the only way to stop our country from continuing down this destructive path is to send someone to Congress who is committed to repealing this law,” says Mr. Halloran in the video.
In a statement accompanying Mr. Halloran’s clip, his spokesman, Steven Stites, said that, if elected, Mr. Halloran “pledges to repeal or de-fund the law to end this crippling tax and put health care back in the hands of doctors and patients, where it belongs.”
