GOP: Pelosi Driving Dem House Members Off A Cliff

Congressional Quarterly/Newscom

NRCC communications director Ken Spain released this statement on the House Democrats’ unveiling of their health care bill, making it clear that the GOP will try to keep on using this issue as a cudgel against Democrats in swing districts:

“The lasting image coming out of today’s press conference is one of dozens of House Democrats standing proudly behind an incredibly unpopular Nancy Pelosi as she prepares to lead them off a political cliff. Not only will the Democrats’ government takeover of healthcare lead to increased costs, higher taxes, and cuts to Medicare, it also feeds into the emerging narrative that Nancy Pelosi and her puppets are more interested in creating government even if it comes at the expense of creating jobs.”
