Several voters cited their uneasiness
about the Affordable Care Act as a factor in their vote for Cuccinelli.
Arlington resident Neal Louis said the possibility of being double taxed for
Medicare and Medicaid by the state and federal governments was enough
motivation to pull the lever for Republican gubernatorial candidate Ken
"If ObamaCare continues through, all of the expenses are going to go on to
the states and Cuccinelli is going to push back on that," Louis said.
"That’s the story I hear."
Regina Barkur-Barzel escaped Russia in 1972 and fled to a new life in the
United States. Today, she serves as a precinct captain. As a Ken Cuccinelli
supporter, she thinks many voters will cast their ballot as a referendum on the
Affordable Care Act.
"Cuccinelli was the first in the country to fight against healthcare
reform and to protect what we have," Barkur-Barzel said. "He stands
for a real democracy, which is important to me. For the Constitution, defending
the Constitution, to defend our rights to choose our doctors and to choose our
way of life."
