Luntz Finds Healthy Lifestyles a Tough Sell to GOP

Republican message-meister Frank Luntz was invited to Capitol Hill this week to advise House Republicans on how to best frame their views on health reform. However, CQ reports, his urging of members to focus on healthy lifestyles and wellness wasn't exactly a home run.

“I don’t want to live that kind of life,” responded Louie Gohmert, R-Texas.

“You don’t want to live that kind of life?” Luntz asked.

“Yeah, you’re eating your BBQ. Clearly you don’t want to live that kind of life,” he went on, to some laughter.

“Hey, ribs are a food group,” an unidentified member called out, to which Luntz responded: “His ribs could actually get up and walk out of the office.”
