Statements from the Florida: 2012 U.S. Senate's race

"The Christian Coalition gave (Adam) Hasner an F."

On whether he would run for U.S. Senate in 2012.

Says U.S. Senate candidate Adam Hasner "cited his efforts to weaken pro-life and school choice legislation as unequivocal proof that he’s a moderate."

"George LeMieux voted against the majority of Republicans and joined with Democrats to create a 'Task Force For Responsible Fiscal Action' that looks strikingly similar to the 'Super Committee' now being set up in Washington to justify massive tax hikes."

Says Adam Hasner’s record includes "requesting over $92.2 million in earmarks."

"This past (legislative) session, we passed out of the Legislature a resolution requiring Congress to pass a balanced-budget amendment to the (U.S.) Constitution."

"I've created over 40,000 jobs."

Florida’s proposed Health Care Freedom Act "will allow Floridians to opt out of Obama’s govt. takeover of healthcare!"

"I sponsored and was the co-sponsor of the only legislation that ever passed that had E-Verify provisions in it back in 2010 when I served in the Legislature."   

Says George LeMieux "falsely attacked Marco Rubio."

Says George LeMieux "even compared Marco Rubio to Barack Obama."

"Earlier this year, the head of the Congressional Budget Office testified before Congress that implementation of Obamacare would cost 800,000 jobs."

"Obamacare cuts $500 billion in future Medicare funding in order to fund the new constitutionally questionable government mandate, even going so far as to scuttle Medicare's most popular (and successful) part, Medicare Advantage."

"No one thought we could get a bipartisan bill (Medicaid) passed. We did in the Florida Senate."

"Obama-Nelson economic record: Job creation ... at slowest post-recession rate since Great Depression."
