Grim Reaper Visits RPOF

October 30th, 2009 by flanews

In the spirit of Halloween, the grim reaper made a visit to the state GOP headquarters to press the Republicans to support health care reform.

The group Health Care for America Now sent the reaper who was wearing a sign that read “GOP Health Plan.” The reaper wasnt invited into the building. An advocate with the Florida Alliance for Retired Americans accompanied the costumed character and accused the Republicans of standing the way of reform.

“We’re here to ask the Republican Party, why are you being an obstacle? Why are you playing politics with people’s lives? That is not helpful to Florida’s families. Now Mr. Reaper loves it, but its not good for the health for our families here in Florida. So we’re going to go in and say ‘trick or treatment’ to the Republicans who are standing in the way of meaningful health care reform in this country and in this state,” said DeVane.

The grim reaper visit is just one of 40 political events taking place across Florida this weekend in support of health care reform.
