MI GOP Senate Primary Heating Up, But Every Candidate Backs GOP Health Care Plan

It’s no surprise the Republican Senate primary in Michigan is heating up — as The Washington Post reported:

Republicans have struggled to recruit top candidates…[and] a lack of a clear leader is leading to a bunch of lower-tier candidates jumping into the race, which means Republicans could spend the next year in potentially expensive (and, in some cases, divisive) primaries.”  

But no matter who emerges from this intensifying intra-party brawl, every Republican candidate has one thing in common: they all back the GOP’s health care agenda that would spike premiums, impose an age tax on older Americans and strip away coverage for pre-existing conditions.

From David Bergstein, Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Spokesman: “Republican recruitment failures are setting the stage for divisive, crowded GOP Senate primaries — but every potential GOP candidate backs a health care agenda that will spike premiums by 20 percent, impose an age tax on older Americans and strip away coverage for pre-existing conditions — all to give more tax breaks to big insurance companies and the wealthiest few. As this race develops we’re sure to hear exactly what these Republicans don’t like about each other — but they all agree on an expensive, unpopular health care agenda that will force working families to pay more for less care.”

WE THE PEOPLE ARE SICK AND TIRED of the in-fighting and political bickering in Washington! Michiganders deserve a NO EXCUSES leader, like me, who has proven that he KNOWS HOW TO GET RESULTS in the toughest situations.” [John James, Official Facebook, 7/28/17]
