Travis GOP: Obamacare figurehead Nancy Pelosi has a lot of nerve speaking at a medical education center
 
AUSTIN -- "First do no harm" is the primary rule of medicine. 
 
This is why the Travis County Republican Party finds it odd that Congressional minority leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) would want to be anywhere near the Dell Seton Medical Center's Clinical Education Center on the Brackenridge hospital campus considering all the harm that was done by Obamacare.
 
"As one of the primary agents of Obamacare, Nancy Pelosi should be embarrassed beyond measure to speak at a medical education center," said James Dickey, Travis GOP Chairman. "With fewer health plan choices for Americans, rising premiums, reduced access to physicians, greater government intrusion into our daily lives, and even a whole new category of taxation that is bankrupting our hardest workers, Obamacare has proven itself to be a failure as well as an unprecedented disaster."
 
As the official Republican presence of Travis County, Texas, the goal of the Travis GOP is to elect more Republicans in the greater Austin metropolitan area. For more information visit www.travisgop.com

CORRECTION (1:29 p.m.): The press release has been edited to reflect that the tour was of Dell Seton Medical Center, not the medical school. Pelosi spoke at the Clinical Education Center on the Brackenridge hospital campus, which is also managed by Seton.
