Democrats Targets Wolf on Health Care

Anita Kumar

The health care debate is hitting the road. Expect to hear plenty about it during Congress's monthlong August recess.

Here in Virginia, national Democrats have started making calls -- both automated and live -- in Rep. Frank Wolf's Northern Virginia district to push him to to support President Obama's health care plan.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is targeting 25 Republicans as part of a program called "Health Care ER" that includes radio ads, phone calls, mass e-mails, letters to the editor, online petitions and teleconference town halls.

"Time and again, Republicans including Rep. Wolf protect a broken system of skyrocketing costs, insurance companies making health care decisions, and record-setting insurance company profits instead of working with President Obama to bring real health insurance reform for middle class families," said Jon Vogel, executive director.

Wolf spokesman Dan Scandling called the attack "standard operating procedure," and said his office is receiving four times as many calls against the health care plan as for it. "I think the only people who support the health care plan are the people working at the DCCC," he said.

Read the script of the calls in Wolf's district below:

This is the DCCC with an important message about your health care.

Insurance companies are posting record profits while health bills skyrocket. Now they are lining up to stop health care reforms and protect profits.

Congressman Frank Wolf took over $50,000 from the insurance industry, and now he's trying to block reform ... like reducing costs by forcing them to compete and preventing insurance companies from denying you coverage.

Call Congressman Wolf today. Ask him to stop standing up for insurance companies and start standing up for us.

We all know that Obama, like his fellow Marxists in Latin America, has his private armies (ACORN, AmeriCorp, etc.), paid with our tax dollars, to help him lie, manipulate, intimidate and force people into submission. We are seeing them in action defending Obamacare. They act like Chavez's paid "turbas." They helped Obama win the election by committing fraud.

Using the doublespeak of the Marxists, Obama accuses the opposition of the crimes he's responsible for -- using paid operatives to manipulate and force people into submission.

But we will not be forced into submission. If we don't save the U.S. from Obama, where will our children and grandchildren find freedom, where will they find refuge from tyranny and oppression?

My insurance premiums continue to climb, my coverage continues to go down and just forget trying to get any customer service from Blue Cross/Blue Shield. Congressman Wolf spokesperson, please address that!
