Driehaus (OH-1) Defends Health Care Vote

Left hung out to dry by the House Democrats, Rep. Steve Driehaus (OH-1) is out trying to justify his vote in support of the governmnt run health care plan. If passed in the Senate, it is all but assured the Stupak abortion amendment will be removed in committee.

From The Cincinnati Enquirer --
Driehaus said he stood firm against covering abortions under the plan and that he’ll run on the vote that helped seal a 220-215 victory for the Democratic plan.

“I will certainly be talking about health care on the campaign trail,” he said Monday after supporters praised his vote in an appearance at Good Samaritan Hospital.

“I had drawn a line in the sand early on about not spending federal dollars on abortions,” he added. “Look, this is a competitive district. It will remain a competitive district. I think the voters will face a choice. Do they want to go back to where we were or do they want to move forward?”
The poll that accompanied the below article in the Cincy Enquirer had 74% of the people stating they would vote against Driehaus in the next election because of his vote on health care. So it looks like the voters look like they want to move forward -- but without him.


  1. Nice! Guess he should remember who he works for!

  2. Hi Lisa

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    It is amazing how some of these guys STILL don't get it! We hope the bill never makes it out of the Senate, but if it does when it goes to committee, we are going to ask all the Tea Party Patriots and other groups in OH to melt the phone lines at Driehaus' office!
