Kline to give national GOP address

ASHINGTON, D.C. — Rep. John Kline, R-Minn., who has taken an increasingly visible leadership role in the Republican Party this year, will deliver the national weekly Republican address  Saturday.

Kline’s comments will touch on the health-care reform debate and will serve as the Republican response to President Obama’s weekly address.

“For the past few weeks, I have been meeting with hundreds of constituents and hearing from a variety of stakeholders in the health care debate,” Kline said in a statement. “Minnesotans — like all Americans — are anxious about the health care proposal being rammed through Congress and naturally have many unanswered questions.”

This year, Kline was selected to be ranking member of the House Education and Labor Committee, which has handled part of the health care legislation in the House.

    Gee… I can hardly wait. And did I miss something, but I don’t recall Kline holding any town hall meetings? I could be wrong, but what’s the point when he’s got a job for life in this district. Just get out there and deliver the GOP talking points like you’re told, John! Well, at least he’s not Michelle Bachmann.
