Here's Neal Marchbanks on his candidacy back in October 2013:
A retired meteorologist wants to be your next congressman.Marchbanks has also come out recently in support of the Affordable Healthcare Act as it's also had a positive impact for his family as well:
Neal Marchbanks is currently unopposed in this spring’s Democratic primary for the District 19 seat in the U.S. House of Representatives now held by Republican Randy Neugebauer, who is likely to face at least one challenger in the GOP primary.
And when critics point out Neugebauer’s routine ballot success, Marchbanks responds that’s partly because the congressman has lacked a viable opponent in past elections. In fact, District 19 could be more blue than some assume, the longtime Lubbockite added.
“I think Mr. Neugebauer’s popularity is beginning to wane, and I have a very good chance of beating him,” he said. “I don’t believe Lubbock is heavily Republican — it’s pretty well split.”
He also supports the Affordable Care Act, which is commonly known as Obamacare, as well as an increase in the minimum wage.If you're looking to support and get involved in Neal Marchbanks' campaign for Congress in TX-19, links are below:
“My daughter has severe asthma, which is a pre-existing condition,” he explained. “If she changes jobs, she has to wait 90 days before she can sign up for medical insurance through her new employer. Not having coverage is not an option in her case, so she has to get COBRA coverage during the interim, which runs about $2,000 a month. Then if she goes into business for herself, she couldn’t afford the coverage.
Now, with the Affordable Care Act, she has the possibility of getting insurance. Being without the ACA stifles a lot of entrepreneurship.”
Stating that “I support the ACA completely,” he said the program has made a tremendous difference for lower income workers such as bus drivers at Texas Tech who have seen their schedules cut to three days a week to make them part time and not eligible for full benefits. “One of those drivers was making only $20,000 a year and needed two artificial hips, but couldn’t afford the surgery because she didn’t have insurance. Because of her income, she now has coverage at a premium of 1 cent per month.
