Ex-DeMint Group Targets Graham
The Senate Conservatives Fund – which until recently was led by U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint – is running a radio ad targeting U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham for his refusal to support efforts to defund Barack Obama’s socialized medicine law.
“Republicans in Congress can stop Obamacare by refusing to fund it, but Senator Lindsey Graham says, that’s ‘a bridge too far,’” the narrator of the sixty-second spot says. “What’s really ‘a bridge too far’ is if Lindsey Graham votes to fund a government program like Obamacare that will do so much harm to South Carolina families.”
“Obamacare is a job killer, yet Lindsey Graham refuses to do what it takes to stop funding for this liberal train wreck,” the ad continues. “This could be our last chance to stop Obamacare, and it’s time for Lindsey Graham to start listening to us, not his friends in Washington.”
Here’s the spot …
Sadly, Graham isn’t the only “Republican” in Washington, D.C. backing down from a fight in the face of Obamacare’s implementation.
The entire leadership of the House Republican Caucus appears to be in the tank as well …
They’ll do anything to block Obamacare from taking effect … except blocking Obamacare from taking effect.
DeMint’s new group – the Heritage Foundation – is also pushing the effort to defund Obamacare, with DeMint recently embarking on a town hall tour of the country called the “Defund Obamacare Tour.”
“Everyday we’re finding out more about this Obamacare bill – how it’s unfair, it’s unworkable, unaffordable and increasingly unpopular,” Demint told NPR. “What we’re trying to get people to realize this is an urgent time if we’re going to stop it.”
In addition to Graham, similar ads are running against liberal Republican Senators Lamar Alexander (RINO-Tennessee) and Richard Burr (RINO-NC).
