Speaking truth to power about health care reform

This week, Democratic lawmakers cheerfully marked the second anniversary of the passage of the health care reform law.

Two years ago, I was so angry over it that I became personally involved in politics, volunteering for a GOP candidate for Congress as director of communications.

This year, I’m running for Congress myself. Last week, I had the opportunity to tell a Democratic lawmaker exactly what that health care reform law has meant out here in the real world.

Here’s the clip:

Incumbents don’t defeat themselves, as hard as they might appear to be trying.

In California’s 30th District, Brad Sherman and Howard Berman are in a death match to win the 49% of registered voters who are Democrats. They’ll split that vote, and in the new open primary, the election could be decided by the 26% of voters who are registered Republicans and the 21% who are registered “decline-to-state.”

You can make a difference in this election. Join me in this fight.
