Health care has been bogged down in the Senate due to the tremendous and unrelenting pressure constituents have imposed on their Senators over the past few months. Yesterday The Senate Finance Committee rejected a government run health care plan, aka, public option. Harry Reid is determined to pass government run health care by any deceptive means possible. His latest devious strategy is to to attach a socialist health care bill to a House-passed non-healthcare bill. That bill is H.R. 1586. Ironically, nobody knows what that legislation looks like, because it has not yet been written. Yet many members plan to rubber-stamp socialist health care without reading or understanding the bill.
The first step is to get a socialist health care bill out of the Senate Finance Committee. Then Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D.-Nev.) can say that the two Senate Committees, Finance Committee and the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee, have passed a bill which will allow him to take extraordinary steps to get the bill on the Senate floor. The second step is to merge the two bills. Step three will be to attach the final Senate bill to H.R. 1586.
There are two methods people can take to prevent Reid and his fellow socialists from attempting to deceive yet again. First people can contact their Senators via phone, email and fax demanding such an onerous bill as H.R.1586 be defeated on a Senate vote.
