There he goes again:
Candidate who says soda is like heroin now says effort to repeal ObamaCare, ANY criticism of Prez is racist
By Michael Horowitz
City Council candidate Andy King said, this week, that racists are orchestrating the campaign against ObamaCare because they can't stand the fact that a black man is President of the U. S.
King, the executive director of the Youth Empowerment Program (YEP) and a long-time organizer for Local 1199 of the hospital workers' union, said, “There is no respect for the office of the presidency among the racists who have attacked everything the President has done, since his first day in office. No one is always wrong, but as far as the President's critics are concerned, everything he does is automatically wrong because they can't stand having a black man in the White House.”
King, who is widely viewed as the frontrunner to succeed Larry Seabrook as Co-op City's councilman, stressed, in a telephone interview, “The Supreme Court did the right thing in upholding the constitutionality of ObamaCare. They did the right thing for the country, and they upheld respect for the presidency.”
The City Council candidate stressed that the country needs ObamaCare because its provisions extend medical coverage to poor people, assure insurance available for children of parents up to the age of 26, and mandate that Americans can't be denied coverage because of pre-existing medical conditions.
King stressed, “From my point of view, the attacks on ObamaCare, like most of the other attacks on the President, are motivated by racism. The important thing should be that ObamaCare is good for the country.”
