Ed Gillespie vs Mark Warner? Think Again! Gillespie Lobbied FOR Healthcare Reform AND Universal Coverage

An interesting reminder of the RINO disease and big money lobbyists like Ed Gillespie. The past comes back to bite you.

Gillespie is making noise that he may try to run against Mark Warner. We need to take out Warner, but the term GillespieCare will play a big role in any such contest. The one big club we have will be nullified if we select someone like Gillespie.

How did that work out for Romney? Remember?

From the Washington Examiner:

Were he to run for the U.S. Senate in Virginia, Republican Ed Gillespie would be as emphatically critical of the federal health care law as most other GOP candidates — but he would first need to reconcile his past positions on the issue.

Gillespie, a former mega-lobbyist and chairman of the Republican National Committee, is weighing a challenge to Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., a popular incumbent.

Health care is expected to be an issue in many 2014 congressional contests, including Virginia, and Gillespie’s record on the issue is likely to make him a ripe target for Democrats — or Republican primary challengers.

In 2007, Gillespie was lobbying on behalf of a group advocating health care reform, including a push for universal coverage, something Republicans have since denounced. The connection became an issue in the 2012 presidential contest when Gillespie was an adviser to Republican nominee Mitt Romney.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
