A Republican Message On Health Care

More

With President Obama set to hold a primetime news conference tonight at the White House, here's what House Republicans released today as their latest message on health care--namely, that Obama's reform initiative is "reckless"--in a web video released today:



Here's an outline of House Republicans' health care platform, produced in July buy the House GOP Health Care Solutions Group, led by Rep. Roy Blunt (MO), the GOP whip who's leaving the House to run for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by retiring Sen. Kit Bond (R-MO).

UPDATE: In response to the ad, the Democratic National Committee issued a statement from DNC Press Secretary Hari Sevugan: "We won't be lectured by Eric Cantor and Republicans on being reckless. While the President is offering a constructive way forward to get something done after we've been trying to reform health care for decades, Eric Cantor and Republicans are offering nothing more than partisan obstruction, the status quo and more cries of 'NO.'

"What's reckless is saying you want to 'kill' health care reform when American families have seen 80 percent hikes in premiums this decade alone. What's reckless is saying you want to 'break' the President on health care when small business are going broke paying for insurance. What Eric Cantor and the Republican Party don't understand is that the most reckless thing we can do, as they propose, is nothing."
