U.S. Senate candidate Ben Sasse will be in North Platte at 6:30 p.m. tonight (Tuesday) for an anti-Obamacare forum moderated by Lincoln County Commissioner Joe Hewgley.

The town hall forum will be held in the Leo Johnson conference room of the North Platte Regional Airport.

Sasse, 41, is president of Midland University of Fremont. He has experience in government, serving as an assistant secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services from 2007-09.

He is one of four Republican candidates for the Senate. He is an outspoken critic of the Affordable Care Act.

“I’ve read the 2,300 page bill,” he said. “It’s not just bad… it’s worse than you think.”

Sasse called Obamacare “the greatest single insinuation of government into every aspect of our life. If it lives, America as we know it will die. If the idea of America is to live, it must be stopped."

Sasse has said he supports “patient-centered health policy solutions in free-market alternatives,” and would explain more during the campaign.
