Coday understands health care

If there is anything you don’t like about Obamacare, if you think it needs major surgery if not outright repeal and real reform, then start voting for change in the August primary and vote for Dr. Art Coday to represent Washington in the U.S. Senate.

We have two good men running for the Republican nomination. One is a practicing physician and small-business owner with a solid grasp of the Constitution, a working knowledge of health care and the ability to make a difference in shaping real health care reform.

The other has good intentions and a business background, but just not the experience to command respect at the health care negotiating table. This is the year to send our best medical expertise from Washington to Washington: Dr. Coday.

In a year when negative campaigning is the norm, we need a candidate with a positive difference. Coday is a practicing physician, caring for seniors and the disabled on Medicare and Medicaid. Coday has a calling to serve, and now he is ready to serve the people of Washington.
