Immediate Action Item -- Health Care
« on: November 03, 2009, 05:55:42 pm »
Say NO to Health Care

 The bugles are sounding the battle charge as we round the corner for the final vote on the "worst piece" of legislation on healthcare, HR3962. We all know there is no Republican nor Democrat; there is only Right and Wrong and this is the wrong direction for America. Here are just a few highlights from this bad legislation, highlights that overshadow the more publicized issues such as paid abortions, death panels, public option, and the famous rationing of care. Yes, all of the above are written in the bill with a "robust" language that even lawyers are having a problem interpreting.

 Some of the newer topics include:  Page 1432 allows allotment of $750 billion to states that enact new settlement laws on malpractice suits. Sounds great except states receive the money only if the caps on damages and attorney fees are not affected. States that have tort reform will receive no funding unless it becomes non binding and federal regulations will supersede. Page 1183 section 1904 provides $750 billion set aside to establish guidelines for childhood development and to establish agencies to police the policies within households.  

 The bill contains the words "comparative effectiveness" which is the new buzz word for rationing.  Throughout the bill these words explain how panels (18 of them set up by the Sec. of Health Kathleen Sebelius) will evaluate to approve or deny care. If you have Medicare Plus, which is the supplemental care package for seniors, your premiums will increase dramatically in order to phase out this care.  Those policy holders will then be transferred to the "consumer healthcare pool" where the public option is the only choice.  

 For all Americans that must purchase healthcare policies, policies available will not be your shopping cart variety where you pick and choose levels. Mandates will force private insurance to uni-laterally cover catastrophic diseases for all holders. Seems rational unless your 30 years old, paying for diseases like Alzheimer's care. Every existing policy will stand to increase 14% - 35% to cover these mandates.   Without addressing the taxes on all medical devices (pacemakers included), cost to small business to label all food nutritional value (vending machines included), stiff penalties for noncompliance, and illegal immigrants receiving free care, I think you get the picture.

 The legislation, which the Wall Street Journal has called “The Worst Bill Ever,” relies on a bloated spending scheme estimated at $1.055 trillion over the next decade according to the Congressional Budget Office. That doesn’t even count the more than $200 billion that will be needed to shore up reimbursements for doctors and hospitals. With the final version of the bill coming in at 1,990 pages- that’s roughly $2.2 million per word.

 When all seems dim, there is a bright light shining on all Americans who truly believe our country, constitution, and traditions are the greatest gift endowed by our creator. For the last 7 months you have rose up from silence and have become the force to be reckoned with. I know this because every congress person that finds out I organize rallies repeatedly says that one fax, letter, email, phone call, drives a fear inside of every politician scared of attaching their name to bad legislation. This is usually followed by a “keep up the good work" remark.  

 We need 50 "Blue Dog Democrats" to vote "NO" on this HR 3962 piece of sh!t.  I believe this will be an easy task for Patriots like you to accomplish.  Remember, we have come from the ashes of a "slam dunk" and so far we have kept them from ramming this crap down our throats.

Here is the plan and remember we only have till Friday before the vote:

If you have not written a letter to the targeted Senators and Congressmen, take the time to do so today. Just write a short paragraph to say "NO to HR3962" to Congress names below, make sure you sign you name and print your name.

Call the numbers on the target list below.  Call the main switchboard if possible.  A voice will resonate with a politician.  Remember to say HR3962 and vote NO.
