Fear the Voters of Illinois, Suzan DelBene. Fear Them!

The National Republican Congressional Committee sure knows how to strike fear into the hearts of House Democrats.

In a blast email sent out on Thursday after the House voted to delay the new health care law’s individual mandate, the NRCC let Democrats, such as Rep. Suzan DelBene, who voted against the legislation know they would be facing the voters’ wrath.

“Inexplicably, Suzan DelBene voted to delay the mandate for employers, but not for middle-class families. She should be ashamed of herself. In 2014, Illinois voters will know that Suzan DelBene would rather help big business than help them,” the missive with NRCC Communications Director Andrea Bozek’s name on top bellowed.

Only problem? DelBene represents Washington state’s 1st District.

We’re sure she’s very concerned about how voters in Illinois feel, too, though.
