Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was on a list on Sarah Palin’s website targeted for removal entitled “Take Back the 20” – meaning take back the 20 House of Representative seats the GOP lost to Democratic candidates. The website has since been taken down after the horrible shootings today in Tucson.
Here is what thestated before it was taken down:
20 House Democrats from districts we carried in 2008 voted for the health care bill
It’s been six months since President Obama signed his health care bill into law. Despite overwhelming public dislike of Obamacare, we were told that Washington knows best and there was nothing to worry about. Nancy Pelosi said Congress had to pass the bill so that Americans could “find out what is in it.” We found out that it’s even worse than we feared.
Join me in standing against those who stood with Obama and Pelosi in voting for this disastrous bill. The Democrats from 20 districts we carried in 2008 voted for Obamacare. Now we can vote against them.
Let’s replace them with good conservatives who will vote to repeal and replace Obamacare with patient-centered, results-driven, free market reform that provides solutions to people of all income levels without bankrupting our country.
Let’s reclaim the power of the people from those who disregarded the will of the people.
Don’t get demoralized, get organized. It’s time to take a stand.
We’ve diagnosed the problem…
