    A free market thinktank in Pennsylvania plans to literally put the crosshairs on Obama Care.

    Supporters who attend the Commonwealth Foundation’s fundraiser will get to shoot at a beat-up car covered in words like “ObamaCare,” “Card Check” and “Cap and Trade.”

    Nathan Benefield is the Director of Policy Research at the Commonwealth Foundation. He says “We’ll decorate the car probably put some signs on it that reflect some of the proposals and ideas out there that we’ve already poked holes in intellectually, but it will give people a chance to shoot at.”

    Benefield says there will also be time for drinking and cigar smoking and candidates will get a chance to speak.  He says both Republican candidates for U.S. Senate and for Governor are expected to attend.
