A Republican congressional candidate wants to know if nearly $1 million in campaign contributions by health care lobbyists influenced U.S. Rep. Rob Andrews (D-Haddon Heights) to play a leading role in getting the health care reform bill passed by Congress.
Rev. Dale Glading, Andrews’ opponent, says that Andrews has received $954,930 from health care lobbyists.
“Rob Andrews supported ridiculously expensive and undemocratic legislation against the will of South Jersey voters,” said Glading. “Now we know why Rob turned a deaf ear to the voters who elected him. His vote for this horrible bill was purchased by the deep pockets of the health care industry.”
Glading says that campaign contributions often come with strings attached.
“After 20 years as a Washington insider, Rob Andrews has lost touch with the working men and women of the First District,” Glading said. “Today, he’s nothing more than a puppet of the lobbyists and special interest groups.”
