Congressman King Makes Brief Campaign Stop In Sheldon
Date posted - April 5, 2012
Our northwest Iowa Congressman, Steve King made a brief stop at the Community Services Building in Sheldon Wednesday afternoon. In front of 30-40 people Congressman King touched on topics ranging from foreign policy to the need to repeal President Obama’s healthcare program.
In what he calls “one of the most hotly contested and expensive elections” coming in November, King will run against Christie Vilsack for the newly formed Congressional 4th district.
King has probably been the strongest opponent of Obamacare in the whole Congress. He came up with the first legislation to repeal it. He also came up with a bill to de-fund it. Both have failed. But King hasn’t given up.
He lobbied each Republican Presidential candidate to ask them to make the repeal of Obamacare a centerpiece of their campaign. All of those who remain still remain committed to that end.
Congressman King says he’s pretty sure that the Supreme Court will strike down the mandate that every American needs to buy health insurance as unconstitutional.
King says the second part is — is it sever-able from the rest of the bill?
Congressman King says he still feels that he needs to stay the course to repeal Obamacare because of what President Obama could do in a second term.
King says the viability of our Constitution as a limited government document is in question as well. But if the Supreme Court finds Obamacare unconstitutional, they will at least have protected the letter of the Constitution in regards to the commerce clause, in King’s words.
