Following up the story of far-right site Newsmax.com taking ads from Massachusetts GOP candidate Scott Brown, there’s this: A friend who’s subscribed to Newsmax.com’s email list passes on a fundraising letter from the Republican National Committee. “Dear Newsmax Reader,” the email begins. “Please find below a special message from our sponsor, The Republican National Committee. They have important information to share with you. Thank you.”

We do need health care reform in America, but there is a right way — and a wrong way — to go about it.
President Obama and Congressional Democrats want a government-run health care system that puts a Washington bureaucrat between American families and their doctors.
Their first thought was to try to rush a bill to the White House before Congress left Washington for August recess, and now we know why.
But the Obama Democrats have circled the wagons, stung and angry that the people dare presume to tell them what kind of health care they want. So Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid will be coming back to Washington to show the American people they won’t let a little thing like public outrage get between them and their desire for socialist control over our lives.
Barack Obama and congressional Democrats think government is the solution to every problem. They’re wrong.
The government already runs car companies, banks and mortgage companies. Republicans believe that the last thing the American people want is government telling them when and where — or even whether — they can get medical treatment for their families.
That’s why we need you to help us keep the heat on the Democrats, and keep them accountable to the American people.
The RNC believes your voice should be heard before the Obama Democrats nationalize almost one fifth of our economy, incur trillions of dollars in new spending and debt, and begin rationing health care to the American people.
Your opinion on the many domestic and foreign policy issues that America faces has been vital. The future of health care in America is so important — especially as Obama Democrats are moving swiftly to bring European-style socialized medicine here — that I am asking for more of your grassroots insight today.
That’s why I hope you will take a moment right now to fill out online our Future of American Health Care survey. Your input will help Republican leaders in Washington, D.C. and across America know where you stand on the Obama Democrats’ nationalized health care plans and the Republican alternative.
And, after you complete your survey, please take this opportunity to make a secure online contribution of $1,000, $500, $100, $50 or $25 to help support our efforts to combat the Democrats’ attempt to impose “Obamacare” on all of us.
You and the RNC are all that stand between our sensible Republican plan for real health care reform and the Democrats’ scheme to take more of your hard-earned income to pay for other people’s health care while limiting yours.
So please complete your Future of American Health Care survey online right now and support our efforts to ensure our health care freedoms by making a special RNC contribution if you can. Thank you.
P.S. GOP leaders in Congress are counting on the input of grassroots Republicans like you to help in the fight for sensible, responsive health care reform. Please fill out your Future of American Health Care survey online right now and make a special contribution of $1,000, $500, $100, $50 or $25 to help us stop “Obamacare” before it’s too late. Thank you.
