Cuccinelli Voters Cite Affordable Care Act As Key Issue

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 Cuccinelli.

"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."
