On Monday, Georgia Representative Jack Kingston made a stop in Valdosta. He said one of things he would like to see happen is for Obamacare to be de funded.

"I think we really need to de fund Obamacare and start all over again," said Kingston. "In the absence of being able to de fund it, we need to be able to dismantle it."

Kingston also pointed out that President Obama isn't actually using Obamacare himself.

"I believe the President should go under Obamacare and it's hypocrisy that the President isn't even under it," Kingston said.

Millions of Americans, younger Americans in particular, who may not necessarily need healthcare are being forced to buy it whether they like it or not, something Kingston is not in favor of.

"All it is, is a tax on them and for [the President] to be conning kids into taking healthcare I think is so disingenuous," Kingston added.

Kingston is running for U.S. Senate. He hopes to take over the seat vacated by Georgia Senator Saxby Chambliss.
