Chill out a year and see what that begins to accomplish in lowering costs.

Tort reform can and should be done first, NOW and separately. There is no complex entwining and threaded set of current legislation that has to be taken into account. It can and SHOULD be done in a SEPARATE, PRISTINE manner that ALL of us can read, even the Congressmen voting on it! (Imagine that!) It will lower the cost of health care by 100-200BILLION dollars.

I realize that some other things could be done too. I, as a NYStater, would be very happy if Congress would pass legislation affirming the Commerce Clause of the Constitution to allow the interstate activity of me buying insurance that the Wisconsin legislature has deemed sufficient.

However after that I would have no objection,
IF the Congress wishes to work on creating a pilot HealthCare program which MANDATES that ALL Congress be enrolled in FOR LIFE, all federal retirees, and ALL Federal employees be enrolled in while they are employed.

Let’s see how well they can design something that they and their union and non-union buddies are required to purchase. Maybe they would even decide it is worth their time to read the bill. In such a public program, ANY other American would be allowed to VOLUNTARILY enroll in that program at any time with the same premium schedule. However, since they are not federal employees, they would be free to change out of it annually. In addition if that program EVER runs a deficit, premiums would be IMMEDIATELY be increased to cover the cost, or benefits must IMMEDIATELY be cut. It can NOT run deficits.

Let’s see how what type of “money saving”, “excellent”, “desirable”, “keep doctor”, “public”, “coop”, “competitive” health care program that they design for themselves and their minions first.

PROVE IT FIRST, CONGRESS! Gain our trust this way!

If you build it, and prove it, we will come, and willingly.

Dear Governor Perry,

On March 30, 2009 the Texas House of Representatives passed HCR 50 affirming that the State of Texas claims sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment.

You have publicly supported this bill, and stated that attorney generals from all over the union could be getting ready to sue the US Government.

We are asking you to take the lead.

We are asking you to order the Texas Attorney General to publicly begin working on a law suit under Article IV, Ninth, and Tenth Amendment of the Constitution.

We are asking you to protect the citizens of Texas that we will not stand for government controlled healthcare in our state.

Under your leadership we can effectively kill the proposal of this administration and allow Texas to be a state free from socialism and collectivism.

Be the voice of reason in the national debate and allow Texans the ability to solve the problems of our state.

Thank you,

(Signature Date)

From Texans Against Government Controlled Health Care

Facts about the 10th Amendment:

The Tenth Amendment (Amendment X) of the United States Constitution, which is part of the Bill of Rights, was ratified on December 15, 1791. The Tenth Amendment restates the Constitution’s principle of Federalism by providing that powers not granted to the national government nor prohibited to the states are reserved to the states or the people.

Affirming that the State of Texas claims sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States over all powers not otherwise enumerated and granted to the federal government by the U.S. Constitution, serving notice to the federal government to cease and desist certain mandates, and providing that certain federal legislation be prohibited or repealed.

Take Action! Before it is too late!
