Healthcare

In the 1990s when Hillarycare (the precursor to Obamacare) was being prepped to pass, I worked as a young staff member in the United States Senate to expose Hillarycare as a fraud perpetrated on the American people.

As a business owner, I’m committed to bringing a market-based approach to healthcare.

You need better access to the doctors of your choice.

You need better care for whatever health challenges you face.

You need to be unburdened from crippling insurance rates.

As your Congressman, I will finish the job of repealing and replacing Obamacare with a market-based approach that improves access to quality, affordable healthcare. I will also fight the current deathgrip Big Pharma has on D.C. politicians and will work to drive down costs and drive up care.

Let’s bring back medical freedom so you can get about living.

From the Desk of Paul Brubaker

Dear fellow American:

My name is Paul Brubaker and I’m writing to you today to tell you about a moment in history that occurred on the floor of the United States Senate back in summer of 1994; back when Hilary Clinton attempted, for the first time, to take over our healthcare system and the pivotal role John McCann played, who is your candidate for Congress in the 5th District of New Jersey. I know all about this because I was there.  

Back in 1994, I was the Republican Staff Director for the Senate Sub Committee on Oversight of Government Management. At that time the Democrats had complete control of our government and the Republicans had not controlled the House of Representatives for over 40 years.  One of our committee’s functions was to monitor the Clintons’ Plan which would have taken over 1/7th of the US economy. At the time, then Republican Senator Arlen Spector’s office was the lead Republican office fighting the Clinton Plan.

During the Summer of 1994 it seemed all but inevitable that the Clinton Plan was going to become law. Then on August 10, 1994 there was a seismic shift in the political debate. The Republican Senator entered the Senate floor along with John McCann and presented to the nation a chart that demonstrated to the entire country what a bureaucratic mess the Clinton Plan was for the nation. The Senator announced that he was bringing Mr. McCann to the floor because he was the one who prepared the chart(s). We on the committee watched and cheered as the Republican Senator used the chart to expose the flaws on the Plan. We on staff could see that public opinion was reversed. Less than 3 weeks later, the Clinton Plan was declared dead. As Staff Director of the Sub Committee on Government Oversight and Management, my staff and I recognized how much work John McCann put into the creation of the chart and held a special appreciation for how he contributed to changing political debate on the Bill. The rest is history we are all familiar with. The defeat of the Clintons’ Plan significantly weakened the House Democrats and a few weeks later, the Republicans took control of the House of Representatives gaining 54 seats in the next election led by Newt Gingrich’s Contract with America.

I do not live in the district and have no vested interest in this election. I do know that John McCann has a great understanding of Health Care Policy; I know that he has a personal interest in it as his wife is a high-risk Obstetrician with his oldest child heading off to medical school this summer. In a political climate where people write anonymous emails and posts making wild claims and remarks, I thought that the voters of New Jersey’s District 5, should know the facts concerning Mr. McCann’s important role because I was there.   

Sincerely,

Paul Brubaker
