FACT CHECK: Congressman Pompeo Has Been a Frontline Fighter Against Obamacare
Tiahrt-Hartman’s negative campaign strategy ignores key facts
WICHITA—Contrary to two new misleading negative campaign ads by the Tiahrt-Hartman campaign, the Pompeo for Congress campaign stands by Mike Pompeo’s record as a stalwart against Obamacare who has voted against the law 57 times. In fact, Kansas voters know better, since Mike Pompeo’s first campaign featured opposition to Obamacare as its cornerstone.
Here’s a fact check:
“Everyone, including Mr. Tiahrt and Mr. Hartman, knows that Mike has always fought against Obamacare and its job-crushing regulations,” said Jim Richardson, campaign manager. “In fact, Mr. Tiahrt has yet to clarify what he meant when he told the Butler County Times-Gazette ‘Some provisions in Obamacare should remain…’”
Mr. Richardson added, “These two candidates are very different. Mr. Tiahrt is focused on distorting the record through innuendo and implication. Rep. Pompeo is focused on repealing Obamacare once and for all.”
Mike Pompeo is a longtime job creator in Kansas, having grown companies in the aviation and oil and gas industries. A graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point, Pompeo was elected to the United States Congress in his first political campaign in 2010. He and his wife, Susan, live in Wichita.
Mike has already been endorsed by the National Rifle Association, Kansas Farm Bureau, Kansans for Life, the National Right to Life Committee, Family Research Council Action PAC, Club for Growth PAC, FreedomWorks, Tea Party Nation, the US. Chamber of Commerce, Governor Huckabee, Governor Brownback, Senator Moran, and Senator Roberts. He also has been recognized as a leading conservative voice by Americans for Prosperity, the American Conservative Union, National Taxpayers Union, Citizens Against Government Waste, Heritage Action, Americans for Tax Reform, and Family Research Council.
