Congressman Jim Marshall voted against Obamacare. But where does this Congressman stand on the new Repeal It! movement that has sprung up in the wake of this disgusting expansion of the federal government? Marshall refuses to sign the pledge.
Through his spokesman, Doug Moore, Marshall released this statement Friday:
“Health care costs are not only bankrupting individuals, they are bankrupting America. Unfortunately this reform bill does not change that simple fact. Repeal of the bill won’t change that fact either. We can greatly lower cost while improving access and maintaining or improving quality. That should be our focus. It will remain my focus.”
Predictable. Marshall is an opportunist. He’s been playing the political game for a long time and will continue to do whatever is necessary to remain elected. His refusal makes sense because I honestly don’t believe that he disagrees with the health care bill. He voted against the bill but voted YES to “Deem-and-Pass”. This is a classic example of having your cake and eating it too. I think the 8th District can do much better. Georgia needs Congressmen that don’t talk out of both sides of their mouths. Marshall needs to go.
If you live in the 8th, feel free to give Congressman Marshall a call. You may even want to tell him you’re giving him his “7 months notice”.
