2nd District Candidate Edmonds on Health Care Vote

Edmonds, candidate for the 2nd District, released this statement regarding the health care vote in the U.S. House last night:

MORRIS, OK - Daniel Edmonds, leading Republican candidate for Oklahoma's Second Congressional District, pledges to work to repeal the healthcare legislation recently passed in the U.S. House. Edmonds has indicated that, if elected, he will author or sponsor legislation to repeal ObamaCare.

"Our current Congressman didn't vote for ObamaCare, for which I commend him," Edmonds said. "However, I challenge him to author or sponsor legislation to repeal it. The majority of Oklahoma does not want this government healthcare so we need a representative who will take measures to repeal the current legislation. I don't believe our Congressman will initiate or support a repeal because of his support of Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House - support he's shown in casting three votes in favor of her leadership."

"If given the honor to serve my fellow Oklahomans in Washington, I will author or sponsor legislation to repeal ObamaCare. This legislation is wrong for America and a vast majority did not want this legislation to pass. We will work to repeal it and instead offer real solutions of availability, tort reform, and lower costs."

    I went to school with Daniel. I have known him since we were kids. I know his character. I will not attempt to render an online character report, let me just say, Daniel Edmonds will NOT be getting my vote.

    I TAUGHT Daniel in school. I have known him a while, also. I WILL attempt to render an online character report. Let me just say, Daniel Edmonds WILL be getting my vote.

  3. I have been with Daniel in some of the most stressful situations, and he has never shown anything less than the highest integritry. Daniel is honest, kind, and someone I could trust with my life. Daniel has no interest in becoming a public servant to promote himself...he wants to serve the constituents of district. In the months that I have traveled with him he has only shown a servant's heart. Being a servant of the people in District 2is a very serious job for Daniel and I know he would love to have your vote.

  4. Concerned Second District Citizen: I am saddened that you would choose to not vote for someone whose character is described as honest, a man of integrity, dedicated to serving the people, hard-working, moral, and conservative. I have known Daniel Edmonds his entire life; we don't always agree but his character is unimpeachable. I daresay that you would be hard-pressed to find anyone who knows Daniel who would assassinate his character.

    I will not hide in anonymity, Concerned, but will publicly say that I am Daniel's sister and I stand behind him in his campaign for U.S. Congressman. I would be happy to talk about him or address any concerns. Daniel Edmonds most definitely HAS my vote!
