Posted on 12/07/2009 9:52:02 AM PST by Ziva
We converged on the House of Representatives in November with our Congressional House Calls both in Washington, D.C. and their home districts to let them know we dont want this brand of health reform. We want reform that puts patients first. That bill passed by an extremely narrow margin, showing Congress is divided on this issue.
Now the fight has turned to the Senate, and its down to the wire. We face hundreds of billions in escalating costs, new taxes, and government-forced health insurance backed by penalties of fines and jail time. We face the possibility of spending all this money and yet leaving 24 million uninsured (according to the Congressional Budget Office).
The plan was supposed to be covering the uninsured and reducing health care costs neither of which is accomplished by the plan in the Senate. Instead, Congress and the administration are seeking to take over the health care system, turn it upside down, and barge into our doctors offices.
The No. 1 reason Congress has taken this long on this issue is YOU Americans rallying for a fresh start on health reform. We need you now more than ever as the Senate nears the end of debate.
Register here for affordable transportation to Washington, D.C. on December 15, when well make our Emergency Call on the Senate. Stand up for health care freedom in a way your senators will never forget.
