Patrick Kennedy Warned of post-SCOTUS "rampage"

Former Rhode Island Congressman Patrick Kennedy, in an email fundriasing blast for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee yesterday, warned of a Tea Party "rampage" if the Supreme Court upheld healthcare reform. Here's the text:

As I write you, the Supreme Court of the United States is preparing to issue its decision on the constitutionality of President Obama’s health care law.

If the Court strikes down the law, Democrats will need to redouble our efforts, fighting to ensure universal health care that’s affordable and accessible to every American is a reality.

If the Court upholds the law, dangerous Tea Party extremists will go on a rampage. Backed by Super PAC’s and shadowy front groups like Karl Rove’s Crossroads GPS, they’ll do everything in their power to defeat President Obama, demonize Democrats who fought for health care reform and, if they win the election, dismantle the law piece-by-piece.

Either way, Democrats are in for a tough fight. That’s why I’m counting on you to stand with me and rush your contribution of $3 or more to our Health Care Rapid Response Fund right now.

The Affordable Care Act represents a giant step forward for every American who lived in fear of bankruptcy because of illness.

My father, Ted Kennedy, spent his entire political career fighting tooth and nail for universal health care. Together, we fought for a holistic approach to health, and championed the Mental Health Parity Law to ensure safeguards and support for families in need across the nation. If he were here, he would be proud of what we were able to accomplish.

Donate $3 or more to our Health Care Rapid Response Fund right now.

Thank you,

Patrick J. Kennedy
