Hating Obamacare is not enough. It is becoming more entrenched every day, and is a huge threat to our state and our country. Please help me spread the word and push back by sending out the following.
Update: The current pressure for a Health Care Exchange in MI is coming from major insurance like BCBS, and Governor Snyder. Our conservative legislators need us to keep their backs. There's not much we can do about corporations, but we can let the governor feel the heat!
Action: Please sound off! Call weekly until this thing is dead.
Contact information for Gov. Snyder: 517-3737-3400
Suggested talking points:
An Exchange enables Obamacare down the road.
Healthcare is a service, not a right!
Centralized control of healthcare has already proven costly and ineffective.
Free market, decentralized solutions are available and should be implemented.
-remove state line barriers to competition in health insurance
-remove competition barriers like Certificate of Need requirements
-tort reform to decrease costs from lawsuit abuse and malpractice insurance
-privatize and/or spin down state medicaid and welfare programs
-deregulate to decrease provider costs
-reduce reliance on 3rd party payers by promoting HSA's, direct pay, and transparent pricing
10th Amendment: Healthcare is not a power granted to the Federal government by the Constitution. That means it's reserved to the states and the people. It's time for us to push back!
MI Attorney General Bill Schuette signed onto the Obamacare lawsuit, but has been conspicuously silent ever since. Contact: 517-373-1110 or
"I'm not asking if his name is on a piece of paper, I'm asking what he's doing now, today, to stop Obamacare in Michigan."
Please add your ideas. Thank you for all you do!!
