Grabelle Promises 10-year Term Max, Criticizes Opponent as Career Politician
BROOKSVILLE – The two front runners in the race for U.S. House of Representatives, District 11, Justin Grabelle and Rep. Daniel Webster are preparing to go head-to-head, after incumbent Rep. Rich Nugent decided not to run for reelection in November.
Grabelle is Rep. Nugent’s Chief of Staff and quickly received the endorsement of his boss when he decided to run against Webster for the upcoming election.
I sat down with Grabelle Tuesday to talk about his campaign and where he stands on the issues.
Grabelle earned his Bachelor degree in Government and International Politics at George Mason University and his Masters in Health Care Systems at James Madison University.
With Grabelle having a background in health care, a discussion on Obama’s Affordable Health Care System was a fitting start to our interview.
I asked Grabelle if he would vote to repeal Obamacare or if he thought the current system could be modified to satisfy conservatives. Grabelle says he would vote to abolish Obamacare and says “there is nothing affordable about the current healthcare system.” If elected, Grabelle says he would ask for a national discussion, which would include many Democrats who he says also oppose the current system.
The Internal Revenue Service has come under fire over the last few years for systematically targeting conservative businesses. I asked Grabelle what tax system he would support if the IRS was abolished. Grabelle says he supports a Fair Tax system and that he would put an end to offshore bank accounts that allow people to avoid paying their fair share of taxes.
Under a Fair Tax System, all federal income taxes would be abolished and replaced with a consumption tax. That means everyone would be forced to pay taxes anytime they purchase goods or services.
Grabelle is a huge supporter of Congressional Term limits and made it very clear that he does not intend on remaining in office for more than 10 years. Grabelle points out that he will not follow the footsteps of his opponent, 10th District Rep. Daniel Webster who he says is a 30-year career politician. Grabelle says Webster is willing to abandon his District to ensure his Congressional seat.
Webster’s current district was redrawn to favor Democrats which is why Grabelle believes Webster is running for the more favorable Republican District.
We are still waiting on a response from Rep. Webster for comment.
Grabelle is passionate about the 10th Amendment which ensures State’s Rights over the Federal Government, with issues outside the scope of the Constitution. Grabelle says people living in different States are not all the same. That’s why he firmly believes in allowing State to choose the majority of their own laws. A one size fits all is not what Grabelle says works for the entire nation.
Grabelle also supports a strong military and better treatment of U.S. Veterans, just as his potential predecessor championed throughout his career.
Grabelle plans to host a Campaign Headquarters Grand Opening at the Villages next Tuesday.
