Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind.) becomes, I think, the first member of Congress to join Tea Party activists in pushing back against one of the big narratives of the week — the ramped-up violence and threats against members of Congress who backed health care reform.
“I also rise to condemn the efforts to smear millions of law-abiding Americans who oppose ObamaCare by associating them and their principled opposition with these criminal acts,” said Pence. “The American people have every right to oppose this government takeover of health care without being lumped in with bigots and vandals by liberals in Congress and in the mainstream press. I say to my countrymen: End the threats, end the vandalism. And let’s also end the smears of law-abiding citizens exercising their first amendment right to speech and peaceable assembly.”
Pence is the third-ranking member of the GOP’s House leadership.
