Healthcare action YOU can take

This is going to be a short one today. I have a couple of other posts partly written, but as we head toward the possible weekend vote on the ObamaCare national healthcare bill, I want to post a couple of ways that you can take action if you haven’t already. Personal contact from constituents can really influence how our representatives vote. And, since your congressmen and women are representing YOU in Washington D.C., you should let them know how you feel.

If you are for or against the federal government taking over the healthcare in this country, let them know. Let your representatives know how you would like them to vote in order to best represent you.

This is from Nancy Pelosi’s own website, speaking of the healthcare bill: “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy.”

Say what? Pass a piece of legislation into law so that (we) can find out what is in it? That is completely backwards, Ms. Speaker of the House! And it is completely wrong.

The people we have representing us in Congress (the House and Senate) should represent the will of the people. There are many, many polls that show Americans do not want this version of national healthcare passed…due to the trillions in costs and the fact that people haven’t even read it yet! We don’t know what is in the bill, and we don’t trust the politicians pushing it through “at all costs.” Whether you agree with me or not, take a stand and act on it.

Here are some places that you can go to send faxes to your congressional representatives. Jump in. Make your voice heard.

If you would prefer to phone your representatives, you can find their phone numbers on this website. Just call them up, and leave a message with the staffer that answers the phone. Tell them how you want them to vote on the healthcare bill, and wish them a nice day. It will make a difference, and you can do it.

    Everything is backwards. Passing bills so that we can read them? What the hell!

    Exactly! I couldn’t believe that when I read it…and it’s NOT a misquote. It is on her own website!

      Speak to people in your sport that have had siilmar foot problems. Finding a sports podiatrist whom has played your sport is ideal. They will have a greater understanding of the intricacies and pressure’s your sport puts on your feet and the problems that arise.

    I’d love to hear your take on this recent Denver Post article that, in short, claims that “the ultimate paradox of the Great Health Care Showdown [is]: Congress will divide along partisan lines to pass a Republican version of health care reform, and Republicans will vote against it.”

    And I love how the author creates several straw-man arguments in the article – there’s nothing more annoying.
