 GOP candidates: Repeal ‘Obamacare’

VALLEY CITY, N.D. (AP) — Repealing the recent federal health care law is on the agenda of North Dakota’s five Republican candidates for the U.S. House.

The candidates debated Wednesday night at Valley City State University.

Public Service Commissioner Brian Kalk, former state Commerce Director director Shane Goettle, and North Dakota state House members Kim Koppelman and Bette Grande say they would vote to repeal the law. they call it “Obamacare.”

Koppelman said some elements of the law could be kept, but he said a fresh approach to health care reform is needed.

Public Service Commissioner Kevin CramerCramer stopped short of saying he would support repealing the law. he said rising health care costs are a problem, and dumping Obamacare won’t solve it. he said a more consumer-focused approach to health care is needed.

When it comes to abolishing a federal agency, three candidates would pick the federal Department of Education.

At the debate the candidates were asked which federal agency they would dump.

Cramer, Grande and Koppelman said they’d like to ax the Education Department.

Cramer, Koppelman and Grande said education is a local and state issue, and it’s none of the federal government’s business.
