Nationalized Healthcare

May 13, 2009

Hi, Guys!
Hope you’re all well.  I just wanted to bring your attention to an issue that we all need to act on..
Nationalized health care is on its way, folks.  Obama campaigned on it, provisions for it made their way into his budget, and now today President Obama and House Democratic leaders have pledged to pass a bill by July 31st.
We have got to work hard to stop this bill, and start now.  Obviously, nationalized health care goes against everything the Tea Party Movement stands for: it is fiscally irresponsible, it will grow the government tremendously beyond its intended role and take away more states’ rights, it will take away the individual’s liberty to choose their own health care, and it will completely destroy the industry’s free market system which will in turn affect other aspects of the free market in our economy.
We can look around the world and history to see that nationalized health care does not work, but leads to a lack of quality and available options in health care as well as bankruptcy (something especially unwanted in a time when our country is already trillions of dollars in debt.)  As Americans we need to make our voices known loud and clear..  Please contact your representatives, put the pressure on (for them to not only vote against it but speak up and oppose it), and keep the pressure on for as long as it takes.  Amnesty was stopped a few years ago by Americans speaking up.  Let’s do it with nationalized health care.
There are a few Democrats that have voiced oppostition to nationalized health care, at least nationalized health care at this time.  Chuck Schumer (NY) has said, “Healthcare I feel strongly about, but I am not sure that we’re ready for a major national healthcare plan.”  And Kendrick Meek (FL) has said, “The money is not necessarily there right now to enact the plans.”  Please put pressure on these representatives to oppose nationalized health care.  If you know of any others who are wishy-washy, please let me know so we can put pressure on them, too.  I’m sure there are more.
Thank you and keep up the good work!  If you have anything similar you wish to share, ideas or news, please post them on our Tea Party Forums at www.huntsvilleteaparty.com.  Let’s get working together and keep working together.
Also, a quick note about the Tea Party: we are currently working on setting up our tax status so we will be able to take donations to cover the cost of things such as the website, location permit, event liability insurance, marketing, etc.  Will keep you updated!  Visit the Contact Us tab on our website to volunteer.
