Congressman Braley Brags About His Ability To Chase Ambulances In Washington

DES MOINES – Before he delivered the closing argument in support of ObamaCare, Congressman Braley bragged about how hard he fought to keep tort reform amendments from ending up in the healthcare law.


“Congressman Braley can chase down an ambulance better than anyone else in Washington, as he proudly bragged about keeping tort reform out of ObamaCare,”said Republican Party of Iowa spokesman Jahan Wilcox. “While it’s a boon for his trial lawyer buddies, Braley’s determination to keep tort reform out of ObamaCare did nothing to address to the rising cost of healthcare.
