Urgent Calls Needed–Health Care Bill May Be Scheduled for Vote

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

After numerous false starts, dropped passes, and goal line fumbles, it appears that the health care reform proposal may still have life in it.

Since President Obama’s Summit on February 25, Democrat leaders have been working to have the U.S. House of Representatives pass the Senate’s health care reform bill. This is the same bill that the U.S. Senate passed on Christmas Eve. It contains numerous unpopular provisions, including special deals for certain states, federal subsidies for health insurance programs that include abortion, and home visitation programs.

If the House passes this bill, President Obama has promised he would sign it into law. Then, Democrat leaders have promised to write another bill that is supposed to fix many of the unpopular provisions, and pass it into law via a technical path called budget reconciliation.

HSLDA strongly opposes the health care reform proposal that is being pushed through the House of Representatives. This mammoth bill will not only expand the government’s role in early education, it will interfere with medical decisions between you and your doctor and force employers to make decisions that could lead to lay-offs or lower wages. While health care reform is needed, the current health care reform bill is not the answer, as it will bring higher taxes, and more government control over families.

Furthermore, it is doubtful that Congress will pass a second bill to fix many of the unpopular provisions in the original bill. In this current political environment, there are no guarantees that another health care bill could get through Congress, even if President Obama pushed hard for it.

We ask you to call your U.S. Representative and respectfully urge him or her to oppose the federal government’s takeover of health care. There is no need to identify yourself as a homeschooler, because this bill will affect all Americans. You can use some or all of the following message:

“Please oppose the health care reform bill. Congress should not force an unpopular bill upon Americans, especially one that increases the power of the federal government and increases the national debt. I am also opposed to the bill’s creation of government home visitation programs. Parents, not federal or state officials, should make child rearing decisions for their young children.”

You can reach your U.S. representative by calling the Capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121, or toll-free at 866-220-0044. You can identify your U.S. representative by using HSLDA’s Legislative Toolbox at http://www.hslda.org/toolbox.

Please forward this email on to your friends and family. Together, we can stop this bill and start over on meaningful health care reform that would benefit all of America’s families, without increasing the size and scope of the federal government.

For more information on the health care reform bill that passed the Senate and will be voted on by the House, please read HSLDA’s legislative analysis at http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=7806.

Thank you for standing with us for liberty.

Very truly yours,

Mike Smith

President, HSLDA
