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 [1]. 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 [2], and several clips are on YouTube [3], including this one of Vitter.
