Republicans Have No Shame: More Dirty Politics

The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) is up to their dirty politics as usual. This should come as no surprise as their campaigns are based on blatant lies and deliberate deceit. It is like an art form for the GOP. Sadly, the few decent Republicans who exist these days seem to have lost the courage to stand up against the loony elements of their party.

Think Progress informs us:

The Wonk Room has learned that the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) is engaged in a misleading campaign to trick physicians into opposing health care reform. The NRCC has been placing calls and sending “hand-written” faxes to physicians across the country to ostensibly recognize physicians for their “invaluable experience” and ask recipients to call a toll-free number and approve a press release “to honor the achievements of you and other concerned physicians like you.” The missive invites doctors to “represent” their state “as a consultant on Rep. Tom Price’s (R-GA) ‘Physicians’ Council for Responsible Reform,’” but a call to the “Council” suggests that the NRCC’s real goal is to scare physicians and add legitimacy to Republican efforts to stall reform.

Hopefully, most doctors are smart enough to see through this sham and will dismiss it out of hand as another Republican campaign to deliberately stall health care reform.
