PHOENIX, AZ (March 19)-Republican U.S. Senate candidateJ.D. Hayworth, Arizona's Consistent Conservative, today called on Arizona voters to join him in bringing ObamaCare to a halt:
"As Arizonans, you and I have an important stake in what this runaway Congress is voting on - or trying to pass without voting on, as the case may be.Our own Democrat representatives in Congress fromArizona-Gabrielle Giffords,Raul Grijalva,Ann Kirkpatrick,Harry MitchellandEd Pastor- need to hear from you, early, often and now!
"Urge them in the strongest terms that you oppose the disastrous, expensive and unconstitutional federal takeover of ourhealth care systembeing imposed on America this weekend bySpeaker Nancy Pelosiand the Obama administration.
"Besides extending the grasp of the Washington bureaucrats into the most intimate aspects of our lives and giving them effective control of one-sixth of our economy, their scheme would cut $500 billion from Medicare and impose massive reductions in Veterans' health care.It is a lethal combination of new agencies, complex new rules and unrestrained spending that will jeopardize our nation's fragile recovery from recession.
"This weekend's vote represents an added $4 billion in costs to our state over the next decade - money Arizona can't afford for programs Arizonans don't need."
