HR 676 Status for more information on current legislation (must stop this nonsense!)

**ACTION ALERT**

It is time for all of us to take action regarding a very damaging piece of legislation that the Obama Administration is very focused on seeing passed this session:

H.R. 676 United States National Health Care Act or the Expanded and Improved Medicare for All Act

We will be gathering additional information on this bill, its progress, and impact, and sending out updates regularly. It is very important that those of us who are opposed to this legislation begin right now to do what we can to oppose this bill.

Unfortunately, all of the noise being made currently is signaling passage of the bill and there seems to be little to no concerted effort to resist it. In other words, there is an aura of inevitability surrounding it, or at least, very well orchestrated efforts to make it appear so.

We need to turn that around. That means getting ourselves informed on the bill and what it means to the future of the country, and getting the word out.

According to the most currently available information, the consensus on the timetable for voting on the bill is this summer, with a target of finalization by August.

While August may seem somewhat distant, the process leading up to it is the one upon which we must attempt to have impact. As we begin a concerted effort to do so, it seems a little reinforcement would be in order.

In 1961, Ronald Reagan did an audio segment about Socialized Medicine for the American Medical Association’s Operation Cup Coffee Campaign. (Where is the AMA in 2009 opposing much worse legislation?).

As with many issues, Reagan was able to articulate basic principles in a way that is timeless.

Nationalized health insurance doesn’t fit into a Constitutionally limited government. Such a program further expands an all ready out of control Federal government.

H.R. 676 is very troubling for so many reasons. For this round, we will focus on cost. Fact is, we cannot afford this bill. Our country is already broke; we have no money. Even prior to last fall’s TARP bill, we were spending money at an unsustainable level. So how we will pay for this? You can read one article about the prospects here.

We will be gathering additional information on this bill, its progress, and impact, and sending out updates regularly. It is very important that those of us who are opposed to this legislation begin right now to do what we can to oppose this bill.

If you feel you are already well-informed on the bill, you could get started right now having an impact by doing as many of the following as possible:

* Email, call, fax, or write your representatives
* Write a Letter to the Editor
* Post to opinion sections of newspaper websites
* Call talk radio
* Send information to your entire email address book
* Talk to your friends, family, and neighbors about the facts

As noted above, we will are going to continue providing additional information. If you would like more information about the whole topic prior to doing any of the above, perhaps you could begin by making list of who you will contact when you have enough information.

If you do additional research and would like to share the information with others, reply to this message or post to the thread on the NING site.
