Here’s a copy of my letter to the Bartlesville Examiner tonight on the topic of Health Care Reform (aka ObamaCare). Perhaps you could write a letter of your own to your local paper.
A good friend of mine said recently; “The state of Oklahoma is busy implementing the provisions of ’Obama Care’, while appearing to oppose ‘Obama Care’. Must be politics as usual in Oklahoma.”
Now’s the time. The legislative session starts soon – on the first Monday of February – and the legislators are busy preparing their bill requests for 2012.
We need to remove the vital elements that have laid the groundwork for single-provider / single-payer ‘universal health care’ in Oklahoma. That means TERMINATING the OHIET Trust (or violation of free enterprise and privacy – a veritable cartel, if you will), return all federal grants for health insurance exchanges, and get out of the Medicaid program. Medicaid (for low income) is a VOLUNTARY program which is being massively expanded to implement the health care law. Getting Oklahoma out of Medicaid is the only way out of implementing the law. Let’s return to fiscal sanity in Oklahoma please! Oh and shhhhh don’t tell anyone but this would contribute significantly to fixing such problems as exploding debt and illegal immigration.

Letter to the Editor regarding Reforming Health Care Reform
In November 2010, Oklahomans said “Yes” by 64% to a provision in the State Constitution which allows citizens to not “participate” in a health care system. Oklahomans made a strong statement saying they were opposed to government-run healthcare and support free-market solutions. The State Legislature passed SB 1373, which established the Oklahoma Health Information Exchange Trust (OHIET), despite the wishes of the people. OHIET can align Oklahoma’s health care system to the federal government’s standards and requirements; link to a national network and insurance programs; collect and share our personal medical data; and is “interopable” with global systems. This type of health care system is doing an “end-run” around liberty, privacy and virtually any need for search warrants.
We need to remove the vital elements that have laid the groundwork for a single-payer health care system in Oklahoma. That means TERMINATING the OHIET, return all federal grants for health insurance exchanges, and get out of the Medicaid program. Medicaid (for low income) is a VOLUNTARY program which is being massively expanded to implement the health care law. Opting out of Medicaid and terminating OHiET is the only way out. Let’s return to fiscal sanity in Oklahoma please! Oh and shhhhh don’t tell anyone but this would contribute significantly to fixing such problems as exploding debt and illegal immigration.
Time is short. Oklahomans need to call their legislators and demand they terminate this trust before all personal liberty and privacy is eliminated.
For Life and Liberty,

Rand Paul introduces his father from long distance for this important dinner in Iowa. Ron Paul’s remarks include a few personal experiences with Ronald Reagan and a little insight into the gold standard, economic policy, foreign policy, and a strong national defense. He has recommended $1 Trillion in the first year of his presidency and eliminate 5 departments including the department of education. Enjoy his refreshing comments amidst a very friendly crowd at the Reagan dinner in Iowa.
