Release from Jeff Flake for Senate:

Democrat’s new ad ignores Carmona’s support of Obamacare

PHOENIX – Democratic Senate candidate Richard Carmona has a new ad on the air saying that both sides got it wrong on health care. Apparently, he thinks that Arizonans have a short memory.
It was just earlier this year when Richard Carmona announced his support for Obamacare, even going so far as to say that President Obama was “brave” for passing it.  (
“It’s no surprise that Richard Carmona would run away from his support of Obamacare, but what is surprising is how quickly he’s flipped his position,” said Andrew Wilder, communications director for Flake for Senate.  “Given that Obamacare cuts $716 billion from Medicare, it’s no wonder why Arizonans overwhelmingly oppose it.”
Jeff Flake voted against Obamacare and supports its repeal.  He favors commonsense healthcare reforms that will improve quality and control costs by using market forces to increase competition.
Unlike Richard Carmona, who would be a rubber stamp for President Obama’s agenda, Jeff Flake will provide a check and balance on President Obama and congressional Democrats.
