ObamaCare is Here to Stay, Thanks to John Barrow
NRCC | August 13, 2013

Barrow Voted To Keep ObamaCare Three Times

The National Republican Congressional Committee released a broadcast television ad in Georgia today that highlights Congressman John Barrow’s continued support to keep ObamaCare and its job-crushing, harmfully expensive policies. Despite the recent scandals surrounding the Obama Administration and their inability to manage the $1.76 trillion law, John Barrow continues to support the expensive policies and 198 percent premium increase that Georgia families could be faced with heading into 2014.

“John Barrow’s vote to keep ObamaCare the law of the land is hurting Georgia families. Despite the derailment of the law and train wreck implementation, Barrow made it clear when he voted to keep this law on the books that he doesn’t care about the negative effects of ObamaCare on Georgia families,” said NRCC spokeswoman Katie Prill. “Barrow owes it to Georgia families to finally stand up for their best interests and start supporting commonsense policies that aid job creation and help to boost the Georgia economy – not policies like ObamaCare that are hurting millions of families across the country.”
