If anyone had any doubt about Randy Ramsey’s true political leanings this week had to be the clincher. We have see more of the endless stream of slick glossy mailers and now radio attack ads targeting Norm Sanderson. The strange thing is that these attacks only go to show that Randy Ramsey is exactly what a number of us have been saying for weeks that he is really a liberal just like the folks he has been supporting and he has actually impugned every Republican in both the NC House and Senate for their stand against Obama-care.
The “misinformation” mailers say that Norm Sanderson voted to implement Obama-care. Anyone who follows North Carolina state politics knows this is pure BULL as Norm Sanderson co sponsored the Health Care Freedom Act which would have outlawed Obama-care in North Carolina.Unfortunately, Ramsey’s best political friend Governor Beverly Purdue VETOED it!
So, knowing that Sanderson was a leader in the fight against Obama-care what are these mailers referencing? Ramsey, cites House Bill 115 and perhaps he should have read it before letting his hot shot, out of state political handlers start a firestorm of lies. I have looked up the Bill on line and here are some facts you can look up also if you and your reporting staff or readers wish to.
1. The bill (115 ) is subtitled “ AN ACT TO PRESERVE STATE BASED AUTHORITY TO REGULATE THE NORTH CAROLINA HEALTHCARE INSURANCE MARKET AND PREVENT FEDERAL ENCROACHMENT ON STATE AUTHORITY BY ESTABLISHING THE NORTH CAROLINA BENEFIT EXCHANGE. Does that sound like a bill that supports Obama-care??
First this bill is a safety net for North Carolina in case the Federal Government forces Obama-care on us. We would have a plan in place to protect ourselves if the Supreme Court does not declare the whole thing null and void and if it does so, then House Bill (115) becomes null and void. This Bill was co-sponsored by Carteret’s NC Representative Pat McElraft and further it was supported by every Republican in the NC House, plus 18 Democrats. Only the most liberal Democrats voted against it so that tells you where Ramsey stands. It proves to me and others that Ramsey will do and say anything to get himself elected. He is more than willing to distort the Truth for his personal political gain which means to me he is a wolf in sheep’s clothing or RINO (Republican In Name Only) and probably thinks and hopes the electorate and average voters are to stupid to check things out.
I know there are people that will still support Ramsey no matter what he does or says. Some see him as a local who “is from around here” and that seems to trump the pile of evidence that grows as high as his mountain of mailers. It still amazes me when people who claim to be conservative Republicans can’t see that Randy Ramsey has all the trademark characteristics of a liberal Democrat used to buying influence, power, and position by hook or by crook. I am also amazed still that the only media in North Carolina really on this story is the Carolina Journal
