U.S. Rep. Bill Young’s death requires a special election in Florida that could turn out to be a referendum on Obamacare.
The Congressional District 13 race between the Democrat, former Florida Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink, and Republican David Jolly could be the first big test of Obamacare’s effect on the midterm elections, according to Fox News.
While Sink has tried to turn the health care initiative into a positive, she agrees the program needs some work, but said it is still needed. Still, she’s keeping the lightning-rod issue at arm’s length.
Jolly, meanwhile, says solutions are needed for health care, but not the fixes Sink is proposing.
