According to a preliminary report - they will be voting on the bill, most likely, on Friday. Please contact all of them with your concerns about the bill.

If you only feel comfortable, just tell them that you want them to vote NO.

The person that answers the phone usually will not "talk" to you, they really only pass on what you tell them to the Congressman. So, feel free to address specific issues, not only with a government-run health care plan (which they may have taken out of the bill) and the high taxes (again, they may have cut some of those taxes out of the bill), but mostly with our FREEDOM! We, as a free people, will not be told that we are REQUIRED to have health insurance or what kind of health insurance we must have.

We just want the government out of our lives. No expansion of the current government run programs will be accepted.

We want REAL reform:

TORT reform - not only is the liability insurance expensive for doctors, but that is a huge reason for having so many unnecessary tests & procedures done.

FEWER people involved in our health care (get the government & our employers out of it).

Address the issue of illegal aliens by securing our borders and having real consequences for breaking our laws. Also address the birthright citizenship for children born to undocumented immigrants. (Currently US laws (actually this came from the supreme court - there is no definition in our actual laws) automatically recognizes any person born on American soil as a natural born citizen).

Change the law that states that hospitals must provide care to everyone that comes to the ER - they should only provide care to those that actually have an emergency (hence the name emergency room).

Keep up the fight for our freedoms and post any responses you receive.
