5th CD Dems all in for Government Health Care

Garren Shipley - March 19, 2018

Democrats in the 5th Congressional District were back at it this weekend, each trying to out-left the other as their nomination convention draws closer. 

But Saturday’s event was a bit different from the usual liberal love-fest when these candidates get together. In fact, there was actual disagreement — two thought the government should only get significantly more involved in your health care, while two thought the government should completely take over your health care.]

From the Charlottesville Daily Progress:
 
"All four are in favor of some form of universal health care, though differed on what form of it they supported. Cockburn and Sneathern supported S1804, Medicare for All, which was proposed by Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Cullop and Huffstetler supported S1970, Medicare X, proposed by Sens. Tim Kaine, D-Va., and Michael Bennet, D-Colo."

In contrast, Republicans in both Washington and Richmond are working to give Virginians more choices and lower premiums. 

As you continue to cover the 5th District Democrat disaster, please consider the following quote from me:

“Once again, 5th District Democrats have made it clear that their solution to every problem is bigger government. Republicans know that giving consumers more choice and more control over their own insurance purchasing decisions will lead to lower premiums. None of the Democrats running in the 5th District — now home to the highest health insurance costs in the country — seem to have learned anything from the Obamacare disaster.” — Garren Shipley, RNC spokesman
