Letter To My Representatives

Vote NO to nationalized health care, (first name of representative)! You represent us - and we don't want the government making health care decisions for us. We are adults and we are perfectly capable of taking care of this matter in our lives. If you want to help us, keep flexible spending accounts alive, vote NO to Obama's insane health care plan (which we CANNOT AFFORD!), and help push portable health insurance, along with laws that would allow citizens to purchase health insurance across state lines. While you're at it, you could reform the medical malpractice laws!

We DO NOT WANT a European, British or Canadian-style state run healthcare program. These programs, besides offering inferior healthcare compared to the US, are a bottomless moneypit - pulling those economies into the dirt. They cannot sustain it. Neither can we! I do not want to wait a year to see a specialist, especially when weeks may make a difference in whether I live or die. I do not want some bureaucratic hack making my health care decisions for me!

Link to find your Representative.

Link to find your Senator.

(What chance do I have that my Dem Senators (including that complete asshole Specter!) will listen to me? I don't care! They will get my opinion whether they want it or not.)

****UPDATE I****

Here is a guy who is reading the entire Bill - and posting on his blog. Lines, page numbers, a link to the Bill. Read it - it will horrify you!

Flecks looks at the Bill

Thank you Anthroblogogy.

****UPDATE II****

Mike at Mike's America noted in comments that our representatives in Congress are considering passing a watered down healthcare bill. I wrote to my reps again, reminding them that expanding the federal government in this way is unacceptable. I also reminded them of some constructive ways of making the best healthcare on the planet more affordable for US Citizens - such as passing laws enabling benefit portability, enabling us to buy insurance across state lines, and tort reform.

I took the opportunity to write to them about Cap & Tax as well. I registered my disapproval of such a scheme.

I encourage you to do the same. Let's keep the pressure on the people who are elected to represent us.

I have been sending emails and faxes, you name it to my two Dumbocrat Senators and it has done no good, especially with Schumer. The only thing our elected officials will understand is to have ALL fed up Americans rise up and shut down the damn government in any and all ways possible and start screaming to have every member of this Congress and administration impeached and removed from office.

They have gotten away with violating their oaths of office, violating the Constitution, dereliction of duty and malfeasance long enough and it is about time WE the People put a stop to it and remind those nimrods that they work for us.

Hey Rev - I almost didn't even write to Specter because I know it will make NO difference with him. I figured what the hell. Might's well do it.

There is a petition at hughhewitt.com - he is trying to gather 1 million signatures on an online petition.

We have to stand up and make ourselves heard!

Good letter Monica! And you should email to Specter anyway. That ass needs to know you are on to his game!

Thanks Mike. I did send it to Specter the Ass.

Looks as if Congress is balking on BHO's deadline for ObamaKare. LOL.

I doubt that it will pass in the form that BHO wants. And that is a good thing.

Blogger Grizzly Mama said...

That is a good thing, AOW! I don't want ANY version of it to pass.

If they made the reforms that I have outlined to them, we will go a long way to making the best healthcare in the world more affordable for everyone in the US. BHO voted against these reforms when he was in congress, though.

Rumor is that the Senate is going to pass a "compromise" bill with some Republican input.

They might take out the most scary part of the proposed Obama Care but still leave us with another massive government program we cannot possibly pay for.

My fear is that enough people will be relieved that they won't be forced into Obama Care that they will look the other way on this "compromise."

Bastards. I'll write another letter.

Okay - done. I just expressed my wish for them to reject a watered down health care bill - which would expand federal government to unacceptable proportions. I also reminded them that there are some constructive ideas and laws that could be passed that would make the best healthcare on the planet more affordable to US Citizens, such as benefit portability, the ability to buy insurance across state lines, and tort reform.

I also weighed in on Cap and Tax, reminding them that the science backing AGW is flawed, and the issue is in no way settled. That makes it foolish to respond with Cap & Tax.

Gotta keep the pressure on the Blue Dogs and RINO's if you dont want ObamaCare to pass.

Another comment from Toady that makes no sense. You are getting nervous aren't you, honey? I mean - I haven't seen you in awhile and all of a sudden you're popping up here shitting up my blog with your unintelligible remarks.
