SCGOP Chairman: Democrats’ silence on healthcare is deafening

Columbia, SC – February 22, 2010 – South Carolina Republican Party Chairman Karen Floyd today released the following statement on President Barrack Obama’s new $1 trillion healthcare plan, and state Democratic gubernatorial candidates’ silence on the issue:

“When it comes to the idea of government-run healthcare, South Carolinians have been clear that they do not want future generations crushed under the debt it will entail, and they do not want Washington bureaucrats making their healthcare decisions for them,” Floyd said. “It is time for our state’s Democratic gubernatorial candidates to stand up and be counted on this issue. Do they stand for liberal, debt-loaded solutions pushed by the president, or do they stand with hard-working South Carolinians who want real healthcare reform? So far, South Carolina Democrats’ silence has been deafening.”
