RNC Health Care Conference Call 3/22/10

Rough Notes from conference call with RNC Chairman Michael Steele:

If you watched this vote on the floor or heard it on the radio you witnessed the dismantling of 1/6th of our economy, expansion of government, and 16,000 IRS jobs added. Why do we need the IRS to enforce health care legislation? The two operative words are “IRS” and “enforce.”

You witnessed Nancy Pelosi applaud the stripping away of individual freedom.

Although the President has said this will reduce our deficit, it is smoke and mirrors.

30,000 came to D.C. to protest. It’s time to take this to the next level.

I have put out a nationwide call to fire Nancy Pelosi. We’ve seen the government takeover of GM, Banks, Health Care, and Education through student loans, and now Congressman Stupak selling his soul on the altar of relativism. I find his actions reprehensible. He is now a special target in 2010. His lie to those and betrayal to the unborn was unfathomable.

The 523 billion stripped out of Medicare, job killing taxes, bailout of insurance companies, fining individuals or jailing them if they don’t buy insurance.

Engage your networks. Find the candidate you wish to support. Take a strong activist approach. Go to www.firenancypelosi.com. Help us organize through raising dollars necessary to unseat members in the house, as well as sign up and engage at the level of working on campaigns in helping state parties and in helping individual candidates.

It is not over. Some are putting out talking points saying we don’t see how conservatives can capitalize on this; they got portability, pre-existing conditions, etc. Those provisions were put in at the insistence of GOP leadership, but they have been watered down. Tort reform has been reduced to nothing more than a study in this bill. Nancy Pelosi is the 3rd most searched term on Google today. Last night I hit my television; this November I am going to hit some Democrats. I want to make sure that all of you know how much I appreciate the TEA party movement. A lot of them were here this weekend. That loud clanging sound out there is actually citizens storming the hill with their pitchforks and their torches. Don’t stop the fight. Don’t let up the fight. This is too important. This is where the rubber meets the road. Fire Nancy Pelosi, repeal the bill. To do that, we have to elect Republicans.

If you would like to work for the RNC’s Victory effort this November, email the RNC at coalitions@gop.com to volunteer.
