Federation of Republican Women
Decries Passage of Health Care Bill
ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Following the passage of the Democrat
health care bill in the U.S. House of Representatives, National Federation of
Republican Women President Sue Lynch said:
“The National Federation of Republican
Women (NFRW) is disappointed in the Democrats’ decision to
disregard the will of the American people to advance a strictly
partisan plan that fails to fix the real problems in our health
care system. What arrogance.
“As House Minority Leader John Boehner said last night in a very
passionate speech, ‘This is the people’s House. The moment the
majority forgets it, they start writing themselves a ticket to
“The NFRW is issuing a ‘call to action’ to our more than 1,500
clubs, asking each to watch closely those representatives in
their districts who voted to support this bill. They need to be
held accountable for putting America in jeopardy.
“In contrast, we applaud House Republicans, who, despite intense
pressure from their Democrat colleagues, stood firm and united
in their efforts to defeat this bill.”
Founded in 1938, the NFRW has thousands of active members in
local clubs across the nation and in several U.S. territories,
making it one of the largest women’s political organizations in
the country. The grassroots organization recruits and elects
Republican candidates, advocates the Party’s philosophy and
initiatives, and empowers women in the political process.
