I’ve heard from many of you throughout the district over the past few days saying that you’ve received “robocalls” suggesting that Mike supports Obamacare. Now, I know for most of you, the silliness of the claim made you laugh. Me too.
Still, I think it’s important that you all know the facts about the claim that is being made in these phone calls.
The calls say they are being paid for by Kansans for Responsible Government.
These calls are known as “push polls.” They first ask for whom you will vote. In this case, if you say Mike Pompeo, they “push” the recipient of the call by asserting a fact that is not fully accurate and is intended to mislead.
The false claim in these recent calls is that “Mike Pompeo voted to fund Obamacare seven times.”
The truth is:
It is true that Mr. Tiahrt and Mike disagree on Obamacare. Mr. Tiahrt recently stated that “parts of Obamacare should remain.” Read his statement here. Mike disagrees and believes that Obamacare needs to be completely eliminated. He believes we need to start fresh from a base of principles that were ignored in this legislation.
So, there you have it. Mr. Hartman is supporting Mr. Tiahrt, who is advancing claims that are intended to mislead voters. We pledge to never do that in our campaign and to always tell the full truth.
Truth is, Obamacare is not funny. It’s hurting Kansas families. With your support, Mike will continue to fight to restore America’s healthcare freedom.
Mike wrote a strong letter to the architect of Obamacare, Sen. Max Baucus, when he called its implementation a train wreck. Click here to read it.
