Your Calls Needed Now to "Kill the Bill!"

The tide of public opinion has turned against the attempted takeover of America’s health care industry. Sixty-one percent of Americans oppose the Senate health care bill, according to a CNN poll, but President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid aren’t listening. They’re pushing harder than ever to pass Reid’s 2,000-page monstrosity through the Senate before Christmas. The bill is being jammed with "incentives" for wavering senators.

And even though the so-called "public option" was scuttled by Sen. Joe Lieberman’s refusal to go along, Reid’s massive bill is still very bad medicine for the nation and will push us far down the road toward socialized medicine.

Here’s the good news. There are so many problems with this bill that there is a very good chance to kill it if people continue to call their Senators – even if you have already done so.


Calls and emails are needed now more than ever to stop ObamaCare in its tracks. Please call your senators now and tell them simply to "Kill the Bill," not try to amend it.

Here’s a quick review of what’s wrong this dangerous bill to give Uncle Sam final say on who gets what care when. The Senate bill is a chamber of horrors that includes:
  • New tax-supported subsidies to purchase private health plans that cover abortion on demand;
  • Watered down abortion federal funding restrictions;
  • Many new taxes, including taxes on medical device makers, a 5 percent tax on cosmetic surgeries, and penalties on American households with incomes over $200,000;
  • A fine or jail for all Americans who fail to purchase the government-mandated plan;
  • A mandate for employers to offer insurance or pay a fine, which will spur many to pay the fine and end employee insurance plans;
  • $500 billion in Medicare cuts for older Americans, thus introducing rationing;
  • Subsidies for "end-of-life" counseling.
  • A raft of pro-homosexual provisions long sought by homosexual activists.
This bill contains "onerous rationing provisions," according to Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK), a physician who has practiced medicine for 25 years. "Every American, not just seniors," Coburn wrote in the Wall Street Journal, "should know that the rationing provisions in the Reid bill will not only reduce their quality of life, but their life spans as well."
"Kill the Bill!"

Please call your senators now and urge them to "kill the bill!" Again, the Senate switchboard is (202) 224-3121. To reach your senators direct by phone or email, please click here: U.S. Senators.

God bless you!
