Republican group shares speech preview card

Health Care Caucus, a House Republican health policy group, shared an image of the ubiquitous glossy card given to lawmakers just before President Barack Obama's address to a joint session of Congress Wednesday night.

The group, which is headed by House Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee ranking member Michael Burgess (R-Tex.), took to Twitter to show the card.

The text of the placard stressed that healthcare reform would provide "stability and security" for those who have health insurance and insurance coverage for those who do not have it. The phrase "stability and security" appeared multiple times on the card, demonstrating the White House's effort to ensure people who have coverage will not be adversely affecred by reform.

Here is the tweet and the photo:
