 National 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 minority status.’

“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.
