STATEMENT: John Barrow on NRCC billboard

U.S. Rep. John Barrow U.S. Rep. John Barrow

"Despite the facts, the NRCC's continuing their hyper-partisan attacks on Congressman Barrow, but the folks in the 12th District are aware of their motives.  While it might irritate folks in Washington that Congressman Barrow rises above the petty politics, the folks in the 12th District  trust him to do what's right for the people he represents.  At the end of the day, that's what matters." - Richard Carbo, Spokesman for Congressman Barrow

Independent fact-checkers have called these attacks on Congressman Barrow just "partisan politics" and "False."  (http://www.politifact.com/georgia/statements/2013/may/10/national-republican-senatorial-committee/gop-attacks-barrow-obamacare-votes/)

In addition to voting against the Affordable Care Act, Congressman Barrow is the lead cosponsor with Republicans of legislation to repeal the individual and employer mandates. Which makes this attack from the NRCC completely false.
