YOUR CITY, STATE ZIP
The Honorable ________________
REP OR SENATOR ADDRESS
REP OR SENATOR CITY, STATE ZIP
Dear Rep./Sen. _________________,
As your constituent, a fellow American, and citizen of the great state of ______, I am writing to ask you to vote against any bill that will give the government increased control over healthcare and will lead to nationalized health care in the United States.
The documented accounts of rationing of medical services, long wait line for diagnosis and then longer wait lines for treatment, and inferior medical care cannot be ignored. In America, while our health care system may not perfect, we are able to choose our doctors, the doctors determine the best course of treatment for their patients, and there is no rationing of medical services. Additionally, in America, uninsured patients cannot be denied treatment in public hospital emergency rooms, so those uninsured patients are able to get the treatment they need in a timely manner.
If you insist on voting for government run health care, I implore you to do 4 things:
1. Promise and commit to change your health insurance and your immediate family members’ health insurance to the new government run program.
2. Promise and sign the pledge to read the bill and allow public input on the final bill for a minimum of 72 hours before voting.
3. Guarantee you will vote against any bill that will lead to rationing of medical services, that will limit in any way the ability for a patient to choose his or her doctor, and that will cause longer wait times before diagnosis and before treatment.
4. Guarantee you will vote against any bill that will increase the cost of medical care through increased taxes, reduced competition of medical providers, reduced competition of private sector health insurance.
Will you make these four commitments to your voters and American taxpayers? If you will not make these four commitments, why won’t you? What stands in your way of making these promises to insure that the superior medical care in America is not compromised in anyway? Why would you vote for a bill and then be unwilling to live by its consequences as an example to your constituents?
Please answer these questions in a return mailing to me. I eagerly await your reply as the future of my physical well being now seems to be in your hands. Thank you!
