St. Charles, MO – Today, U.S. Senator Mike Lee, (R- Utah), addressed an enthusiastic crowd of conservatives gathered for ACU’s fourth regional Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC ) in St. Louis, MO. Introduced by Dana Loesch, host of The Dana Show: The Conservative Alternative, Lee addressed attendees on a wide variety of issues facing our country.

Senator Mike Lee:

We must assert our right to live in a land that’s free from an oppressive, distant national government.”

Regarding Obamacare, Senator Lee concluded, “We have to persuade [Our friends and family] that sitting back and doing nothing is not acceptable. Not when the government is trying to take over our health care system”
