Mike Keown: Elect Me To Congress & I Will Repeal ObamaCare

2nd district Congressman Sanford Bishop (D - Albany) didn't have to wait long for criticism on his vote in favor of the health care bill signed into law Tuesday by President Obama.

Republican challenger Mike Keown said Bishop was "out-of-touch" and pledged to repeal the new law if elected to Congress.

"The bill is too expensive. It will raise taxes, kill jobs in Southwest Georgia, push our country further into debt, and force new government mandates on states and small businesses. At a time when we have record unemployment in Georgia this bill is wrong for Georgia and America," Keown said. "When the voters of Southwest Georgia send Sanford back home in November, I will vote to repeal this law."
