Former South Dakota governor and current republican candidate for the U.S. Senate Mike Rounds made a stop in Rapid City on Tuesday.
Rounds was in town to open his new campaign office on Main Street. He also stopped by Westhills Village, where he posed for pictures and answered questions.
A favorite talking point of the Rounds campaign is the elimination of the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare. He said if it's not eliminated, it will bankrupt the Medicare Trust Fund.
"I don't think we can fix it. I think we have to eliminate it because Obamacare is based on taking literally $732 billion out of the Medicare Trust Fund and funding Obamacare with it. So you can't make promises to people out there with money you don't have. Their raiding the Medicare Trust Fund with Obamacare. We have to repeal it before they take all the money out of it," Rounds said.
Newly released information by the Congressional Budget Office says the Affordable Care Act will cover more people at a lower cost than earlier expected.
