Nixon to Skip NAACP Candidate Forum to Peddle Phony Health Plan

The MOGOP called out Jay Nixon today on his health care plan. Continuing his tradition of disrespecting Black voters and taking them for granted, Jay is skipping a NAACP candidate forum tonight to peddle his phony plan instead.

“In a pathetic attempt to garner attention Nixon is traveling to 3 cities today, hoping that Missourians will ignore the fact that the last Democrat governor slashed health care benefits for as many as 400,000 low-income Missourians – and Nixon gladly defended those cuts.

In 2003, Jay Nixon, without a word of dissent, went to court to defend Holden-enacted Medicaid cuts,” said Tina Hervey, communications director for the Missouri Republican Party.

Now, Nixon has built his gubernatorial bid solely upon criticism of Republican enacted overhauls of out-of-control welfare programs, refusing to acknowledge that 5 years ago, without hesitation, he defended significant state health care cuts. Nixon continues to show Missourians that he has nothing more to offer but empty rhetoric, hypocrisy and a record of failure.”
