This morning on Fox News, Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-GA) tried to manipulate data from a Rasmussen poll to say that 75 percent of Americans support health care repeal or support congressional action to "gut as much as we can" from the law. Yet as he twisted the numbers, a screenshot of the poll showed that only 20 percent of Americans fully support health care reform repeal. Recent polls have consistently found the public closely divided on health care reform — and no poll shows the kind of strong support for the GOP position that Gingrey imagines.

Speaking on the House floor last night, Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-GA) asserted that "in all polls taken" the American people "overwhelmingly" oppose the Affordable Care Act. In reality, however, public opinion is shifting in favor of the Affordable Care Act. According to a new Gallup poll, 49 percent say that passage of the bill is a "good thing" versus 46 percent who say it's a "bad thing."

During an October 28, 2009 appearance on C-SPAN's Washington Journal, Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-GA) said he would be "very much inclined to support" Sen. Olympia Snowe's public option "trigger" proposal. Don't be fooled. This is merely a transparent attempt to transform the "party of no" into the "party of not now."

Each morning, the House Republican Conference provides the press with the roster of its "Health Care Rapid Response Team," which lists House Republicans who "are available to talk about health care this week." However, a quick glance at who's filling their campaign coffers raises the question: just whose interests do these members have at heart?

Following the June 1, 2009 decision by the Justice Department to reject a legally flawed system of voter identification being used in Georgia, Rep. Tom Price and Rep. Phil Gingrey expressed dismay at the "outrageous decision." The only thing outrageous about this is that two members of Congress are defending a voter identification law that severely, disproportionately, and unfairly impacted minority voters.

It's well-documented that the GOP can't settle on a party leader or a consistent message, but there is another subject on which Republicans just can't agree: whether or not green jobs actually exist. Rep. Phil Gingrey says they are "subprime" and "just like leaves on a tree...[they] will fade and in winter, they'll be long gone." On the other hand, Rep. Dave Camp said green jobs would, "put our workers back in jobs and give Michigan's struggling economy a significant boost."
