Obama, Congress Steamroll Health Care Reform, Hoping No One Notices

Posted in Random Musings by laborlawguy on May 27, 2009

Obama and his Congress (a cloture-proof Senate and a wild-eyed House) are busy steamrolling their plans to nationalize health care (in the guise of “reform”) while an idolatrous media fawn all over the process and the public buries its collective head in the sands of ignorance and resignation.

In any endeavor as large as the reform of America’s health insurance (forget the care part–that’s a charade, or cover-up–this is all about control), the devil is in the details, and details are the last thing the Obamacrats want anyone to see. Thus, they’re rushing the whole legislating process to a vote by July 1 before anyone can wise up to what they’re doing and expose them.

Of course, there are many people trying to pierce the veil of secrecy right now (I for one), but to crack through the liberal media’s chokehold on what the public gets to read and hear is not easy.

At any rate, we can all do our part. I’m herewith reprinting this useful guide about notifying your representatives to slow down and involve everyone in the process. It lists e-mails and phone numbers where you can express your concern, and hopefully someone will listen:

If you or others that you know are concerned about all or any of these proposals, we urge you to share your feedback TODAY as follows and staying involved as Congress moves to act: 

  • E-mail the Health Care Reform Leadership of the Senate Finance Committee at
  • E-mail each member of the Senate Finance Committee at
  • Call (202) 224-4515 and share your views with Congressional Staffers Erin Shields (Baucus) and Jill Gerber (Grassley), Committee on Finance, 219 Dirksen Senate Office Building, Washington, D.C. 20510-6200
  • Tell your Senators and Representatives you oppose Congressional plans to fast track health care reform the way Congress enacted the Stimulus Bill
  • Tell your Senators and Representatives you will support members of Congress who vote responsibly on health care reform
  • Tell your Senators and Representatives in Congress and political party leaders you will work to defeat members and candidates that advocate these and other irresponsible health care reform legisltation
  • Carry through on your promises
  • Keep speaking out until you are heard and Congress gets the message.  

Thank you, Cynthia Marcotte Stamer. Read the whole article at Solutions Law Press.
