Rep. Gingrey Grossly Overstates Public Support For GOP Position On Health Care

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.

Rep. Gingrey Lies About Health Care Polling

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."

Rep. Gingrey Comes Out In Favor Of A Trigger

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.

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.

A GOP Divided On Green Jobs: Rep. Camp vs. Rep. Gingrey

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."
