Tim Kaine: Obamacare is going to be great - The George Allen for U.S. Senate Campaign today released its latest web video titled, “Going to be Great,” featuring Tim Kaine’s unabashed, vocal support for President Obama’s $1.5 trillion partisan, health care overhaul – Obamacare – and the adverse impact it is having on Virginia families and businesses.  As Chairman of the Democratic National Committee, Mr. Kaine declared Obamacare would ‘go down in history as one of the great achievements of this president’,” said Dan Allen, senior advisor to the Allen campaign. “Instead families and small business owners are struggling under another failed Washington policy, on which Chairman Kaine sided with President Obama instead of Virginia.”SUPER: One of Obamacare’s biggest supporters Tim Kaine. Yet Obamacare is hurting Virginia families & small businesses. TK: I think health care reform is going to go down in history as one of the great achievements of this president.

(ABC’s “This Week,” 10/24/10) SUPER: Tim Kaine. President Obama’s Senator. Not Virginia’s.

George Allen: Obamacare Stalls American Economic Engine - Washington Times - Nearly a year ago in January, as chairman of the Democratic National Committee, Tim Kaine boasted that Obamacare would be “one of the great achievements of this president.” He then went on to claim this “reform will control costs and lower costs for middle-class families” and that it was “an important step toward getting our economy back on track.” These all sound like fine political phrases, but the real question is: are they true? Obamacare has been in place for a little more than 20 months, and the picture is finally becoming clear. What we now know is that Obamacare is destroying jobs and opportunity.  At the time it was being debated, Mr. Kaine said this government-run health care legislation is “good news for the health of our economy,” but since its passage we have seen 20 months of unemployment topping 8 percent. The reasons can be found in Obamacare’s thousands of pages of legislation and regulations.  For example, Obamacare imposes a $2,000 per worker penalty on any company with 50 or more workers that, in the opinion of some government bureaucrat, isn’t providing “adequate” health insurance for its employees. This provision means companies either have to provide government-approved insurance or pay a steep fine.  Read more.......
