ABC News' Teddy Davis reports: The campaign arm of House Republicans is making robo calls today to voters in 40 Democratic-held districts, warning them that their member of Congress is under pressure to support President Obama and Speaker Pelosi's health reform effort. The calls are targeting 25 House Democrats who voted "Yes" and 11 House Democrats who voted "No." The calls are also targeting four Democrats running in open seats who have yet to say whether they would be for or against the Senate version of the health care bill. The calls, which are paid for by National Republican Congressional Committee, are going out to Republican, independent, and Democratic households. Democrats are responding by calling the planned robo calls another GOP "scare tactic." Here is the script of the call hitting Democratic Rep. Tom Perriello (VA-05). Perriello voted "yes" on the House health care bill.  Click HERE to listen to the audio. ANNOUNCER: “Hello I’m calling from the National Republican Congressional Committee with a code red alert about an impending health care vote in Congress. Even though a majority of Virginia voters want them to scrap it, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and President Obama are planning to ram their dangerous, out-of-control health care spending bill through Congress anyway. What’s worse, Congressman Tom Perriello voted for this bill the last time it was up and might vote for it AGAIN. Perriello already voted for a bill that will kill jobs, raise the costs of health care, and increase taxes.  Tom Perriello should be focusing on creating jobs, yet he might be the deciding vote that causes this massive new spending bill to pass. Please call Tom Perriello now at 202-225-4711 before it is too late and tell him to vote no on Nancy Pelosi's dangerous health care scheme. Visit www.nrcc.org/codered to learn more. This call was paid for by the National Republican Congressional Committee and not authorized by any candidate or candidate’s committee.” ABC News’ Matt Loffman contributed to this report.
