Eric Cantor, the Republic Whip in the U.S. House of Representative's is promoting a video of Texas Democratic Congressman Henry Cuellar.
Cuellar went on
the GOP's propaganda cable channel Fox News, and rattled off his support for tort reform, the Stupak amendment, and a need for efficiencies in heath care. Needless to say, he went through the GOP talking points very nicely.
Tort reform happened in Texas nearly a decade ago and premiums and health care costs have still risen over 100% since the Republican's forced through the constitutional amendment that reduced tort litigation or damages for those harmed. This shows why we need massive health care reform. The only way we can get the efficiencies Cuellar wants is, wait for it, to actually pass reforms. The current system has few efficiencies and that's why we need reform.
As for Stupak, I am going to let smarter people than me talk about how bad his amendment is.
There is still time to tell Henry Cuellar to vote for health care reform. Call his Washington D.C. office at 202-225-1640 or toll-free at 877-780-0028.
And feel free to tell him you are calling because of his ridiculous appearance on Fox News.
