from the Dold campaign
Illinois' 10th District Congressional Candidate Robert Dold denounced the passage of Speaker Pelosi's health care plan Saturday, citing it as another example of a big government takeover that will hurt senior citizens and the middle class by imposing new mandates and taxes on small businesses, raising taxes for families and implementing drastic cuts to Medicare.
“It’s disheartening that, during a time of economic crisis when the focus should be on job creation, the Democrats are halting economic recovery by spending trillions of taxpayer dollars on a big-government bill,” Dold said.
Dold, a fiscal conservative, is supporting a Republican alternative that provides a commonsense, responsible solution to the health care crisis without raising taxes, increasing the deficit or cutting Medicaid. This plan would allow for more private insurance options, provide for a comprehensive reform of medical malpractice, and ensure reliable care for people with pre-existing conditions.
This alternative would not result in job loss, while senior White House economists say Pelosi’s bill will destroy 5.5 million jobs over the next 10 years.
Creating and maintaining employment for residents in the 10th District will be Dold’s major objective as Congressman. He plans to implement smarter government regulation, lower taxes, and meaningful health care reform, which will help businesses create jobs.
“As Congressman, I plan to put people back to work and balance our budget by handling tax payer dollars with care and responsibility,” Dold said.
