  • Senators Set Tone on Health Care, Attack Big Government Ideas

    Over the next eight weeks, a group of freshmen Republican senators will be spreading the conservative message on health care. Through coordinated media education and speeches on the floor of the U.S. Senate, these senators will define the stark contrast between liberal government-controlled health care and the conservative vision that would allow Americans to own and control the health care plans for their families.

    Yesterday at Heritage, three of those senators — David Vitter (R-La.), Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) — outlined their health care reform plans and addressed why it is vital to stop a big government takeover of health care. Video of the event is available, and several clips are on YouTube, including this one of Vitter.
