Cramer's Healthcare Record is Right for North Dakota

I support Kevin Cramer for many reasons with healthcare being one of the more important reasons. I cannot support Heidi as she talks a good talk while in ND but continues to support Obamacare and the lunacy of Schumer, Pelosi, and Waters while in Washington. Let me tell you what their positions have done for my wife and me.

The Obama economy forced me into early retirement when my company laid me off at age 54. A position with anything comparable in income was not to be found and Walmart only needs so many greeters. We were forced to pay $30,000 or more per year for premiums, co-pays, and deductibles. We are considered seniors but not yet eligible for Medicare and paid these expenses with withdrawals out of our IRA with a 10 % penalty for those years before we turned age 59 so the true cost was even higher.

Kevin Cramer and the republican leadership have supported coverage of pre-existing conditions (Life is pre-existing) with more affordable plans. It could not be any worse than what Heidi continues to support! My wife and I have spent money that was meant to support us should we live to be 80. Who will support and take care of us now?

I am not betting on the clueless young Heidi volunteer who rang my doorbell yesterday!
