Dems Lift Ban On GOP Healthcare Mailing

From Roll Call:

Democrats Lift Hold on GOP Health Care Mailing

House Democrats agreed late last week to allow Republicans to send their constituents a mailing critical of the majority’s health care bills, after a two-week delay caused by Democratic allegations that the mailing was inaccurate.

The mailing was approved Friday night after a meeting between Franking Commission Chairwoman Susan Davis (D-Calif.) and Rep. Dan Lungren (R-Calif.), the top Republican on the Franking Commission, according to a GOP aide.

Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) also attended the meeting to help mediate between Davis and Lungren as they worked out a compromise, a senior Democratic aide said.

The dispute centered on a chart created by Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Texas) and Republican staff of the Joint Economic Committee to illustrate the organization of the Democratic health care plan. The chart illustrates the Democratic plan as a daunting tangle of agencies and bureaucratic procedures.

“Over the last couple of weeks there has been much discussion about the Republican Joint Economic Committee Health Care Chart,” said an e-mail sent Monday to Republicans from the GOP House Administration Committee staff. “We are pleased to report that the Democratic Members have removed their objections to using the chart.”

Apparently the chart is “accurate” now.

Anyway, it is a nice success for the GOP. Albeit it is just as small as it is rare.

Still, the Democrats need to remember that even with Mr. Soros’ money and ACORN’s army, they won’t always be in power.

(Thanks to Curveyred for the heads up.)

    I wonder if this had anything to do with the healthcare cards that Pelosi was handing out?

    I saw this chart and used it to my advantage when I wrote to my representatives strongly urging a no vote to Obama-Care.
