FromCNN: "The Democratic National Committee is targeting 32 House Republicans in a new radio ad campaign that criticizes them for voting against health care reform legislation earlier this month.
"The commercials will begin running Tuesday and are aimed at Republicans in congressional districts that voted for President Obama in the 2008 election.
" 'Republicans have read this wrong politically,' said DNC spokesman Hari Sevugan. 'They think the political peril is in voting for reform. The political peril is in voting against reform and siding with big insurance companies instead of their neighbors.' "
Miami Republican Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen is among the 32. Listen to the ad here.
Here's the script: In last year's historic election, voters in Florida's 18th Congressional District supported President Obama and his call for change.
But when it came to fixing our broken health insurance system, Congresswoman Ileana
Ros-Lehtinen voted for more of the same.
When the U.S. House passed health insurance reform that would provide Americans quality, affordable care, Congresswoman Ros-Lehtinen stood with the insurance industry, not the people she was elected to represent.
Congresswoman Ros-Lehtinen voted against ending discrimination based on pre-existing conditions, against reining in skyrocketing premiums, and against expanding health coverage to more Americans.
Congresswoman Ros-Lehtinen joined Republicans in Washington and voted against real reform. She stood with the health insurance industry instead of us.
Call Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen at (202) 225-3121 and tell her it's time to stand up for reform, not insurance companies.
