Messages To Senators Webb And Warner Regarding The Socialized Health Care Bill Vote Today

Here is the text I sent to them:

I am writing to ask you to please vote “Nay” on the upcoming cloiture vote regarding the socialized Health Care package that Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi are trying to push through Congress. This bill is a disaster waiting to happen, just as similar measures became disasters in countries like Great Britain and Canada whose Health Care systems have suffered immeasuraby under similar legislation.

Further, this bill will only serve to undermine the freedom of choice that we Americans enjoy in our current Health Care system and it may very well be a violation of the 4th Amendment.

Under the 4th Amendment, Americans are guaranteed freedom from unwarranted searches and siezures, yet this bill authorizes the Internal Revenue Service to arbitrarily look into the private bank accounts of American citizens and even to take money out of those accounts without the accounts holder’s knowledge or permission, all without warrant or probable cause. That alone is reason enough to vote “Nay.”

America does want reform for Health care, but not the currently proposed bill which will ultimately result in a government take-over.

We want tort reform that will prevent ambulance chasing lawyers like John Edwards (D-NC) from becoming millionaires overnight from junk-science lawsuits which end up forcing people to pay higher incurance premiums to cover the losses. We want greater choice in health insurance by lifting the ban on inter-state insurance plans. None of this is addressed in the Reid-Pelosi versions of these bills.

Further, we want to choice to “opt-out” of the government run “public option” that has been such a dismal failure in Canada and Great Britain. The current “opt-out” language is a joke as no governor of any state will ever deny benefits to his/her citizens if they still have to pay the taxes for it. The current “opt-out” language is an insult to our intelligence and again, is more than sufficient reason to vote “Nay.”

Other options for Health Care reform are on the table if the Democrats would simply stop negotiating in secret behind closed doors and would instead start to allow opposing views to be brought out, considered and discussed.

Remember that Harry Reid crafted this bill in secret and completely broke the 2006 Democrat promise of the “most open and transparent Congress in history.”

Please follow the will of the people of the Commonwealth of Virginia and vote “Nay.” The election results of Novemeber 3, 2009 showed clearly where we stand on the issue of more government intervention in our lives. We do not want it and you should not be promoting it in any way, shape or form.

Thank you.

I’ll let you know if they even respond and whether or not they address the issues of tort reform, inter-state insurance choice and transparency. My guess is they will ignore those issues and go off on some socialist tangent.

  2. Please vote NO for the new health bill. Even tho they are deleting the special interests for Medicaid folks in Nebraska, there is nothing in this bill to help the people of Virginia.
    One of our most prominent surgeons left his lucrative practice to work for an insurance company. What are the people of Virginia who are on Medicare going to do. Doctors here don’t want to take us as patients and the doctors who do now are thinking of giving up their work for more profitable occupations. Start over and make a bill that can work!
    I pray that a republican wins the election in Mass.
    Signed: Nancy and John Webb
