DCCC hits Cao's healthcare vote with robocall

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) is going after Rep. Joseph Cao's (R-La.) healthcare vote with robocalls.

The calls, which are going out to tens of thousands of New Orleans-area homes, feature Congressional Black Caucus PAC Chairman Gregory Meeks (D-N.Y.) laying into Cao for his "no" vote.

“On Sunday, I was proud to stand with President Barack Obama to pass a historical health insurance reform bill," Meeks says. "I thought that you should know that your congressman, Joseph Cao, unfortunately voted against President Obama's health insurance reforms that will improve coverage for nearly 200,000 of his constituents and extend coverage for over 50,000 who don't have it now. Congressman Cao stood with the insurance companies and Republicans in Washington instead of standing up for hardworking families he represents.”

Cao's district is a majority black district and is arguably the Democrats' top pickup opportunity this year. State Reps Cedric Richmond and Juan LaFonta are currently running.
