HOLT: LINCOLN’S 60th VOTE “DIVIDED OUR NATION”
SPRINGDALE, Arkansas — Republican US Senate Candidate Jim Holt called Senator Blanche Lincoln’s announcement today that she would be voting against the Healthcare Reconciliation Bill a “fraud” and a “Fig Leaf” to cover up her crucial 60th vote to proceed with Obama Care.
“With a single vote she has divided our Nation right down the middle and we are poised below an avalanche that can only be stopped if we act now.” Holt Said “Lincoln’s comments that the House Package ‘includes matter unrelated to health care’ is imbecilic. The package that the Senate originally sent back to the house was full of this ‘unrelated matter.’ The Federal Government is bound by article one section nine of the Constitution to not favor one state above another.”
Holt continued “Blanche Lincoln lit the match that burned the Constitution. Her crucial 60th vote for cloture last December sent a clear and undeniable message to the American people that she will continue to adhere to Washington’s liberal agenda despite what the voters in Arkansas want, or what the supreme law of the land says.”
It’s not only time for a change in Washington, it’s time to send Washington a message. The clearest message Arkansas can send Washington is in sending Jim Holt to the US Senate.
Holt concluded: “America’s Future is worth fighting for. That’s why I am running for the US Senate. Our Nation must be saved.”
