Turner Knocks 'Obamacare’, Challenges Weprin
Bob Turner, Republican businessman and selfnamed fed-up New Yorker and reform candidate for the congressional seat vacated by Democratic congressman Anthony Weiner, has called on what he terms as Democratic machine candidate and career-politician David Weprin to join him in supporting the overturning of Obamacare, further calling it the Medicare-gutting health care takeover that he says will cost New York taxpayers billions and reduce the level of care nationwide.
“Mayor Bloomberg and Democratic Governor
David Paterson passionately opposed Obamacare because of its damaging effects on health care in
New York, especially in New York City. In all, Obamacare will cut $500 billion from the Medicare program. Mr. Weprin did nothing to oppose it as an Albany politician, despite its clear detrimental effects on New York State,” Turner said in a prepared statement.
“David Weprin has been a politician so long that he seems to have forgotten what real people care about,” Turner said. “Hint: they want to choose their own doctors and they don’t want Washington bureaucrats in the examining room with them. As a member of Congress, I will fight to preserve Medicare as we know it by overturning Obamacare. Will Mr. Weprin make the same pledge?”
