GOP House Candidate: Obamacare Anger Remains Strong

Tuesday, 13 May 2014 07:41 PM

Democrats have said that the anger and fervor surrounding Obamacare have lost their momentum for Republicans, but a GOP candidate for Congress, Niger Innis, says that is not the case.

"No, we're not losing our momentum. We're doing a very smart thing, which is letting Obamacare speak for itself," Innis, who's running in Nevada, told J.D. Hayworth, Morgan Thompson, and John Bachman on "America's Forum" on Newsmax TV.

"There was a recent poll, I think it was Pew, that said that Obamacare has never been more unpopular than it is today, and that's because you don't need politicians or candidates or even elected officials talking about it," Innis explained. "The bill, the law itself, is speaking for itself loud and clear," he said Tuesday.

However, Innis says that in spite of the unpopularity of Obamacare, it is not what people are most concerned about.

"Healthcare is a close number two or number three, but it is definitely jobs and the economy," Innis said.

Innis explained that no matter what group of people he speaks to, whether they are Republicans, Democrats or Libertarians, there is a "general feeling that the American Dream is either in peril or the American Dream is dead."

"That is a real tragedy," he added. "This country is not only the economic engine but it is the moral engine for the world, and if we go down, if we lose faith in ourselves as a country, then I would say that civilization itself is in peril."

Innis is the son of civil rights leader Roy Innis, the spokesman for the Congress of Racial Equality, and a tea party activist.

He is running for the House seat currently held by Democratic Rep. Steven Horsford, but he must first face off against his Republican opponent, Nevada Assemblyman Cresent Hardy, on June 10.
