Statement from Kim Vann:

Congressman John Garamendi today reaffirmed his support for the government health care overhaul by voting to keep in place Obamacare and the $600 billion of taxes it includes. Colusa County Supervisor Kim Vann, candidate for Congress in California’s new 3rd district, offered the following statement today in response to Garamendi’s vote to protect the government takeover of health care:

“By voting to protect the health care law’s $600 billion tax on American families and small businesses, John Garamendi has proven once again where his priorities lie—and they’re not with the people of California’s new 3rddistrict.  John Garamendi has reaffirmed his support for a law that threatens seniors’ access to care by cutting over $500 billion from Medicare and empowering an unelected and unaccountable board of bureaucrats to make decisions regarding seniors’ health care.

“As small businesses continue to be burdened with new regulations and as health care costs continue to rise, it’s clear that John Garamendi’s health care overhaul isn’t working—and it’s even more obvious that the radical “single payer” Canadian-style government-run system, which John Garamendi is fighting for, is completely out-of-touch with what Californians need.  I’ll fight not only to repeal John Garamendi’s healthcare overhaul, but to also implement common sense reforms that increase access to quality care, allow Americans to keep the insurance they like, and protect Americans with pre-existing conditions, while lowering costs and ensuring that patients and their doctors, not government bureaucrats, remain in control of their health care decisions.”

Kim Vann is running against Rep. John Garamendi to represent California’s new 3rd district in the U.S. House of Representatives.  The new district is made up of all or parts of Colusa, Glenn, Lake, Sacramento, Solano, Sutter, Yolo and Yuba counties.
