Does Jack Conway Still Support Ben Chandler?
Conway Embraces ‘G.O.P. Big Lie’ Tactics: Continues Lying About Mongiardo’s Support for Health Care Reform
Statement from Dr. Daniel Mongiardo U.S. Senate Campaign
It is unfortunate that Jack Conway continues to blatantly lie about Dr. Daniel Mongiardo’s support for healthcare reform. Daniel Mongiardo’s position is very clear. He supports healthcare reform. (Click here to see Mongiardo's ad.)
Jack Conway has confused Daniel Mongiardo’s position supporting health care reform with his political ally and mentor, Congressman Ben Chandler. It is Congressman Ben Chandler who actually voted "NO" and AGAINST healthcare reform on three separate occasions. If Conway feels so strongly about the healthcare bill, why isn’t Conway criticizing Congressman Chandler for voting “NO” on healthcare coverage for 900,000 Kentuckians, voting “NO” on pre-existing conditions, and voting “NO” on strengthening Medicare for seniors—as Conway has falsely attacked Mongiardo.
We challenge Jack Conway to state what he thinks about Congressman Ben Chandler’s three “NO” votes on the House healthcare reform bill and why he believes Democrats should vote against Ben Chandler. Has Conway been silent about Congressman Chandler’s vote against the healthcare bill because Chandler is a strong supporter of Conway or because Conway’s attacks on Mongiardo are pure politics designed to win votes?
Jack Conway and GOP opponents of healthcare reform have one thing in common: they can’t tell the truth when it comes to healthcare reform. Having returned to Eastern Kentucky after medical school to provide needed care, including opening a free health clinic for the working poor, Daniel Mongiardo has been on the front lines fighting to improve healthcare in Kentucky. For 10 years, as a State Senator and Lt. Governor, Daniel has fought to lower the cost of prescription drugs for seniors, expand health care to more Kentucky children and transform an outdated, broken health care delivery system into a modern, safer, less costly system. Unlike Washington’s political insiders who are backing Jack, Daniel believes that Kentuckians know truth and character when they see it and they will reject Jack Conway’s false, negative campaign.
