Have you heard of Dr. Alieta Eck? If you haven't, you likely are about to, because the 62-year-old former president of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons is throwing her name into the New Jersey senate race. Eck will be running on the Republican side against former Bogota Mayor Steve Lonegan and businessman Brian Goldberg in the August 13 special election primary.
Eck has no political experience as she told John Gambling Tuesday morning, "I would be a citizen legislator." Eck may best be known in political circles for her opposition of Obamacare. Eck said on WOR 710 Tuesday morning that Obamacare is "going to sap us of so many resources, laying huge bureaucracy on top of us." Eck explained that a free clinic she runs, costing $13 per patient a visit, would cost "ten times more" if the government was involved.
