Price of Politics, Etc.: Steve King for president
Excerpted from this post at Price of Politics, Etc.
Fifth District Republican Congressman Steve King filled us with news
this weekend. Two things headlined his chat with us: an almost tea
party revolt and a run for president. King wants Americans to rush to
Washington, D.C. to stop Congressional Democrats from passing a
government-run public option in the health care reform package. King
said he doesn't believe the numbers are changing and that more
Americans support the public option. He wants Americans to "fill
Washington". And if they can't go there in person, he wants them to
jam the phone lines, email in boxes and talk shows. He isn't asking
people to yell, like some of the most vocal did during town hall
meetings this summer. But he wants them to show their passion to
Congress. And he wants Congress to hear that passion, he said.
