I encourage you to view the bills below. Once you understand them....go to www.congress.org and at the top enter your zip code and find your representatives. Take a few moments to call or email them and let them know how you feel about this.
The bills do not always match the words you see on TV....so please be sure you understand them. Example...Obama promised to make sure everyone had insurance coverage. Sounds good, huh? The reality is he is trying to CONTROL your health care by nationalizing it. What does this mean? It means that your Dr. is no longer the one who decides what treatment you will receive. It gives that control to the government.
We have the BEST health care system in the world. This will ration medical care. You will only get treatments of the GOVERNMENT deems it cost effective.
Now, I am not sure how you feel....but I feel that my medical care is between myself and my Drs. Where my children are concerned, my childs Drs. and I will determine what is best for them. The GOVERNMENT has no place in my private affairs.
Below you will see the upcoming bills. Take a good look at them. Read them and SPEAK UP. We are moving at warp speed at becoming a Soclialst Nation.
