Watch Out President Obama – State Sen. Neal Hunt for Repeal of Health Reform

Today State Senator Neal Hunt (R-Wake) sent out a newsletter putting him squarely in the “repeal reform” camp:

Many of you are as disappointed as I about the recent passage of President Obama’s, Speaker Pelosi’s and Senate leader Reed’s [sic] National Health Care Legislation. Even though the legislation has passed, after 2012 I am optimistic that we will be able to repeal this bill and pass meaningful health reform legislation.

No word on just what provisions in the health reform bill are so distasteful to Sen. Hunt. Maybe it’s the one about parents keeping kids on their health plans until age 26, or perhaps it’s the small business tax credits. If not those, it must be the $250 rebates this year to older North Carolinians for drug costs or maybe banning insurance companies from dropping someone when they get sick.

    Maybe after 2012 Hunt can pursue seniors for backpayment of Medicare Part D subsidies.

    Maybe he doesn’t like the government forcing people to buy a certain product.

    Maybe he’s just out of touch with the 32,000,000 people who will finally have access to health insurance, or the more than 40,000 people who die each year because they don’t have health insurance?

    Maybe he is for individual responsibility and smaller government and for less government waste.
