++ IMPORTANT ACTION ITEM
Folks, SB 1629 passed out of committee on Monday 7 to 2. However, 3
Republicans voiced strong reservations about the measure and may not
support it in future votes. Therefore, we are putting the call out to
folks wanting our lawmakers to say NO to creating the infrastructure
to implement Obamacare. I would go so far as to say, NO to this plan,
at least during this legislative session. We should at least give time
to see if the U.S. Supreme Court rules against the measure or if
President Obama is defeated this November and the law is repealed by
Congressional Republicans as they are promising.
Therefore, a call is being issued for citizens wanting this
legislation stopped to come to the State Capitol, this Thursday
morning (3-1-12). We will meet in the Governor’s Hall, 2nd Floor, on
the South side of the building at 9:00 a.m. We will have handouts, a
copy of SB 1629, SB 999 and briefly discuss these before we pair up to
visit our State Senators.
Following is the information published by our Accountability
SB 1629 just passed out of committee and will soon come up for a vote
on the Senate floor. SB 999 is also well on its way. SB 1629 says in
part, “The Health Insurance Private Marketplace Network Trust is
authorized to administer a premium assistance plan for individuals…”.
That’s right. Our state government wants to get into the business of
“helping” with insurance premiums for citizens. SB 999 has our
medical providers sharing our medical records with the state and
federal governments WITHOUT OUR PERMISSION. These bills have all the
markings of the early steps of a government administered universal
healthcare program (Obamacare).
Your help is needed, please show up at the Capitol if at all
I forgot to mention in Monday’s e-mail, that I have about 100 free
passes to this year’s Auto Show which will be held at the State
Fairgrounds starting on Thursday and running through Sunday. If you
are in the market for a new vehicle or just want to go and see what’s
new, come by and get a couple of tickets.
Thanks for your time and attention.
