Texas GOP Donor Releases Anti-Obamacare Songs
Houston physician and Republican campaign donor Steve Hotze has written two songs about his opposition to federal health reform.
He's already a Houston physician, Republican campaign donor, radio talk show host and litigant in a federal lawsuit against the roll-out of "Obamacare." Now Dr. Steve Hotze may be adding aspiring pop star to that list.
Hotze, an ally of top state leaders who has contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to their campaigns, has cut two songs about his opposition to federal health reform.
The songs — "God Fearing Texans Stop Obamacare" and "Texans Stand Against Obamacare" — are recorded in a digitized, techno style and feature refrains like "We will defeat Obama and the socialists" and "Texas should be free again, it should be an independent nation."
The musical release follows Hotze's visit to the state Capitol last week to announce his lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of federal health reform. Hotze was flanked by Republican leaders at the announcement; Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst's office booked the room for the event.
Hotze has built a lucrative practice in suburban Houston around nontraditional therapies and treatments for allergies, thyroid problems and yeast infections. He’s best known for promoting natural progesterone replacement therapy for women, a treatment the FDA has questioned the effectiveness of. As recently as 2011, he had a daily health and wellness show on Republican Sen. Dan Patrick’s Houston radio station, KSEV.
Hotze has said his lawsuit will address "new and unconstitutional problems that stem from Obamacare."
"What would William Travis do? What would Sam Houston do? What would Davey Crockett do?" Hotze sings in "God Fearing Texans Stop Obamacare."
"I know what I’m going to do. I’m going to fight Obamacare, I’m going to defeat Obamacare."
