NRCC | November 15, 2013

In Wake Of ObamaCare Debacle, Rahall Is Desperate To Hide His Support – But It’s Too Late, Rahall Is Part Of The Problem

– Nick Rahall has been one of ObamaCare’s biggest supporters – he voted for the bill, defended the bill, and has continued to vote to keep the bill on the books.

With ObamaCare proving to be a total disaster – from the botched website to the broken promises – it’s no surprise that Rahall is now desperate to hide his support. But it’s too late – Nick Rahall is part of the problem. Because of his support for ObamaCare, things are only going to get worse for West Virginia families.

“No matter what this Washington politician says, Nick Rahall voted to give us ObamaCare and keep ObamaCare on the books,” said NRCC Communications Director Andrea Bozek. “Rahall is part of the problem, and it’s because of him that ObamaCare has been such a total disaster for the American people.”
