Below is a list of vulnerable Senators on Health Care, we must start the pressure on them as well NOW! (Vulnerable, meaning they could go either way – cg)
THIS BILL IS TITLED HR 3200; it is the Dodd-Kennedy Bill
YOU MAY FIND A LINK TO IT AS A SUMMARY AT: http://edlabor.house.gov/documents/111/pdf/publications/AAHCA-BILLSUMMARY-071409.pdf
This Bill will penalize us for not taking a health insurance plan, to the tune of a 2.5 % penalty on modified adjusted gross income.
This Bill will give more money to community organizations (ACORN) to set up “Community Transformation” coalitions. Community organizers will come to your neighborhood and do surveys regarding your weight, your bad habits and other criteria and mandate that you change the bad thing and then put you on a program for your health, which they will oversee. They will then report all their findings to the CDC for further analysis. Then the CDC will decide what your “treatment” options will be.
This Bill is frightening as a whole and gives complete control over health care decisions to government agencies and community organizations!
Please keep the pressure up on the list (below) of House people and tell them NO to HR 3200!!
They are trying to work with smoke and mirrors again, folks.
They are also trying to push the Hate Crimes Bill into the Defense Appropriations Bill as we speak. Call your Congressman and let them know you hate these games! And tell them your votes will reflect that at the next ballot!
