Project Code Red Launches New TV Ad Against Steve Driehaus

Facing Critical Vote On Gov’t Healthcare Takeover, Driehaus’ Political Career is on Life Support


Washington- As part of its latest Project Code Red offensive, the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) today is launching a 30-second TV ad reminding Ohio families about Steve Driehaus’ vote for the Democrats’ trillion dollar government takeover of healthcare. Given Driehaus’ record of rubber-stamping Nancy Pelosi’s reckless agenda 94 percent of time, and the fact that only 33 percent of Ohioans support this health plan, the Democrat’s political career is now on life support. The ad, which is titled “Heartbeat,” encourages Ohioans to sign an online petition against the latest attempt to ram a healthcare bill through Congress by texting “Driehaus Code Red” to 777218.

“After campaigning on bipartisanship, Steve Driehaus’ support for his party’s agenda of government takeovers and fewer jobs has put his political career on life support,” said NRCC Communications Director Ken Spain. “Democrats are wasting no time in plotting their efforts to ram a partisan healthcare bill through Congress, and they’re looking at Driehaus to help scrape together another razor-thin majority. Steve Driehaus has a choice – will he finally stand up for Ohio families and vote against the Democrats’ reckless healthcare takeover or will he cave to his radical Washington party bosses again and allow his political career to perish?”

Driehaus already backed Obama’s healthcare takeover last November and now the President is counting on his vote again. Steve Driehaus’ political career is in critical condition and Ohioans are suffering. If he casts one more vote in support of Obama’s government healthcare takeover and against the best interests of Ohio families, he might as well be pulling the plug on his own political career.
