Republicans Robocalling Against Rep. Zack Space « The Washington Independent
The NRCC has released audio of a robocall hitting the district of Rep. Zack Space (D-Ohio), an “aye” on health care who represents a district that voted for Bush and McCain. The script — a version of the text Greg Sargent had yesterday:
Hello, I’m calling from the NRCC with a code red alert about an impending healthcare vote in Congress. Even though a majority of Ohio voters want them to scrap it, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and President Obama are planning to ram their dangerous, out-of-control healthcare spending bill through Congress anyway. What’s worse, Congressman Zack Space voted for this bill the last time it was up and might vote for it AGAIN. Unemployment in our state stands at 11.0%, and yet Space voted for a bill that will kill jobs, raise the costs of healthcare, and increase taxes. Zack Space should be focusing on creating jobs, yet he might be the deciding vote that causes this massive new spending bill to pass. Please call Zack Space now at 202-225-6265 before it is too late and tell him to vote no on Nancy Pelosi’s dangerous healthcare scheme. Visit www.nrcc.org/codered to learn more. This call was paid for by the National Republican Congressional Committee and not authorized by any candidate or candidate’s committee. 202-479-7000.
The obvious question is what someone like Space has to gain from flip-flopping now — will the NRCC lay down its arms in October, failing to inform voters that their congressman voted for this job-killing scheme, then flipped under pressure?*
