“I don’t know how bad [GOP leaders] need those votes, but I thought we really needed to let leadership know that doctors are getting so tired of being jerked around all the time,” Gingrey said. Asked whether including the doc fix would help increase GOP votes, Gingrey said, “I think it will help, I definitely think it will help.”
United We Dream protesters carry a mock coffin to the office of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Monday, July 21, 2014, to hold one of their "funeral services for the Republican Party" due to GOP positions on immigration. The immigration reform group visited several other Senate Republican offices to hold similar funeral services.
