Democrats Targets Wolf on Health Care
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.
