On April 21, 2012, FreedomWorks’ health care VP Dean Clancy updated bloggers at BlogCon CLT in Charlotte, NC, on the Tea Party’s fight to replace ObamaCare with a patient-centered health care system.
In a talk titled “Health Care: How We Win,” Clancy described the battle as being waged on four fronts: 1) the court of public opinion; 2) the Supreme Court; 3) Congress; and 4) the states; and he optimistically predicted, “We are going to win this thing!”
Clancy concluded by offering bloggers a handy list of health policy experts to interview and consult as the health care battle heats up.
P.S. On April 27th, Dean asked me to add a quick clarification. In the talk, he describes the conservative Heritage Foundation as being in favor of a policy called “auto-enrollment,” as a fallback to ObamaCare’s infamous health care mandate. Dean is critical of that idea, viewing it as unnecessary and, under current conditions, imprudent. A friend has since told him that Heritage may not in fact formally embrace auto-enrollment. So he’s now seeking clarification on this point. I’ll update this post as soon as we have more info.
