    Hune Not Behind Medicaid Expansion 'Robo-Calls'

    Sen. Joe Hune today urged residents not to let special interest groups hijack their voices and opinions.

    Hune, R-Hamburg, recently mentioned that his office has received an innumerable number of phone calls from constituents that were transferred to the office from `robo-calls' they had received regarding Medicaid expansion. However, many of them do not understand the phone calls they are receiving and some seniors are even mistaking it for changes to Medicare.

    Hune says

    "These robo-calls appear to be intentionally misleading! These calls prompt you to press one to speak to our office or it automatically transfers you. Either way, many are mistaking it for being originated by my office. I repeat that we are not responsible for these calls."

    Interest groups have launched a campaign that automatically sends phone calls to many of the Michigan Senate offices recently. He understands the frustrations of those receiving the calls:

    "I apologize to my constituents who are receiving robo-calls from shadowy interest groups scripted to sound as if it was coming from our office, which is not the case. Aside from these calls being very persistent to homes in my district, many of my constituents don't know who called them or why, and are confused by the automated statements made before they are transferred. These robo-calls are a product of questionable, pro-Medicaid expansion groups that don't have the residents of the 22nd District's best interests at heart.

    Those interested in the Medicaid expansion issue should do exactly what I am doing: research the issue and come to a well-thought-out conclusion.

    We always welcome the comments and concerns of our constituents. If they have questions on Medicaid expansion, they should reach out to my office at 855-JOE-HUNE."

    Thanks for the Update Joe.

    Yessiree folks.  Keep an eye out for those " questionable, pro-Medicaid expansion groups ".

    They'll do ANYTHING to move it forward.

    Yep. Had another robocall yesterday at noon (none / 0) (#1)

    Comes up on caller ID as Grand Haven MI.  Naturally, I press 1 to be connected to Sen. Moolenaar's office to let them know the robocalls sent me to them, and to tell John to stick with his NO Vote on Medicaid expansion.  

    His staffers always get a giggle when I remind them again that the allegedly same Party Governerd won't be receiving a re-election vote just because Snydholm attacked my legislators who oppose Obamacare entanglements in Michigan.

    Seems to brighten their day with having to deal with Ricky Nerdbama stealing time away from the constituents they represent.

    Not a good way to get Joe's support (none / 0) (#2)

    I didn't get the call (they probably called my fax line), but if they are making it think it came from Joe's office, all it's going to do is make him mad.

    Joe, nor his staff, doesn't have much tolerance for games.
