Nov. 14, 2011 - PRLog -- Nebraska State Treasurer and U.S. Senate Candidate Don Stenberg, said today that Jon Bruning needs to clarify his position on government guaranteed medical care.

“We both agree that Nelson-ObamaCare is unconstitutional and should be repealed. But when he was in the Nebraska Legislature, Jon Bruning apparently believed that the states should guarantee medical services to all citizens,” Stenberg said.

Project Vote Smart, a national bi-partisan organization that scrutinizes candidates and officer holder positions, asked then State Senator Jon Bruning to answer their Nebraska State Legislative Election 2000 National Political Courage Test. The survey asked which items Bruning would support if re-elected.

When Bruning was asked to indicate which health care principles he would support (if any) he declined to support the statement that “Guaranteed medical care to all citizens is not a responsibility of state government.”  The complete survey can be found on the Vote Smart website: http://www.votesmart.org/candidate/political-courage-test...

“Is he saying he opposes Nelson-ObamaCare at the federal level, but would like to see BruningCare implemented by the State of Nebraska,” Stenberg asked?

“We know that Jon Bruning was a liberal Democrat in college and law school but says he changed to a conservative when he first ran for public office. Has he now changed his view on government guaranteed health care? If so, when did that happen, and why,” Stenberg asked?

“Nebraskans can’t afford to send someone to Washington whose core beliefs on the issues that matter most change from one year to the next. If we are going to take back our country from Big Government Liberals, we need to elect a genuine, lifelong conservative Nebraskans can trust to take on Ben Nelson,” Stenberg said.
