GOP hopefuls in the 11th district differ on Obamacare
The four Republicans in the March 18 primary race to take on Democratic U.S. Rep. Bill Foster appear to dislike the Affordable Care Act as much as they want Foster out of office.
But the candidates differ on what they believe should happen to President Barack Obama’s signature health care law.
Obamacare is definitely the biggest issue right now in government,” said state Rep. Darlene Senger of Naperville, who decided not to seek re-election at the state level to make a bid for the 11th Congressional District seat. “We’re finding every day that something is being changed about it.”
Two of Senger’s opponents in the GOP primary — Ian Bayne of Aurora and Chris Balkema of Channahon — insist the Affordable Care Act should be repealed.
Balkema, who is a Grundy County Board member, says the numerous revisions and delays of certain parts of the law aren’t improvements.
