McMorris Rodgers a designated hitter for Health Care ruling

Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers will be one of two House Republicans providing instant comments -- they're calling it "messaging" -- when the U.S. Supreme Court issues its ruling on the Affordable Care Act on Thursday.

Except she's more likely to be calling it by its favored GOP term, Obamacare, particularly if the court throws out all or part of the law.

A press release this morning from McMorris Rodgers's office said she'll be at the Supreme Court building Thursdah morning for the announcement of the opinion with Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga., who serves on the Ways and Means health subcommittee. They will "lead the House GOP's messaging in response to the ruling," the announcement said.

Later, she'll lead a group of at least eight House Republican women talking about the decision at a press conference in front of the Capitol.
