Ann Kirkpatrick just did the unthinkable. She’s tripled down on her vote for the disastrous Obamacare. In her second bid for Congress, Ann Kirkpatrick is out with a campaign ad touting her vote for Obamacare, calling it the “proudest vote she ever cast.” Seriously?
Since Kirkpatrick and Democrats voted for Obamacare, Arizonans and their families have been unduly burdened with a 190% increase in health insurance premiums. Even after she was confronted with the loss of insurance providers across the Grand Canyon state during a 2016 debate, Kirkpatrick doubled down on her proudest moment in Congress – her vote for Obamacare.
Kirkpatrick should rethink her strategy – touting her Obamacare vote in 2016 was tone-deaf then, and it’s just plain insensitive now.
“Arizonans have struggled under the costly and unnecessary burden of increased healthcare premiums, and they have Ann Kirkpatrick to thank. Obamacare was a disaster from the start, taking money out of the pockets of Arizonans. Kirkpatrick claiming she’s for affordable healthcare is an utter oxymoron. Saying she’s proud of her vote for Obamacare shows how truly tone-deaf Kirkpatrick is.” – RNC Spokesperson Renae Eze
