Storey GOP will back Settelmeyer
Assemblyman James Settelmeyer spoke at a town hall on health care held at the Storey County Senior Center in Virginia City on Monday.
In a statement released after the session, Settelmeyer said there is a lack of information on the bill dealing with health care.
“This bill is being formed daily; one day no public option, the next day it must have a public option,” he said.
“I don’t believe it’s right to rob money from Medicaid and decrease the care for seniors and those who currently rely upon it, to insure the 10-15 percent of Americans who don’t have insurance, let alone tax the benefits and lower the level of care to those with insurance.”
Settelmeyer is seeking the Capitol Senate District seat being vacated by Mark Amodei, R-Carson City.
Storey County Republicans issued a statement thanking Settelmeyer for his participation in the town hall, and supporting him in his senate bid next year.
