    Grassroots Say NO to Obamacare In Michigan

    Governor Snyder is wasting no time utilizing a back door attempt to implement Obamacare in Michigan.

    With the acceptance of 30.9 million of Federal money being offered to Michigan to fund the Health Care Exchange, 2013 could see Obama Care in MI and More! There is expected a Committee vote anytime, which has precipitated a grassroots backlash. This money is key to jump-starting the Health Care Exchange this year. It was stopped by our efforts last year. We can do it again! IT MUST BE DONE. Stopping the funding of the Health Care Exchange is necessary in stopping the expansion of Medicaid in Michigan as the Exchange will administer the program.

    A press release issued this morning (published at Jen Kuznicki's blog and elsewhere) from other activists and grassroots leaders suggests withholding support from organizations which support the exchanges as well:

    "The coalition of activists urges those who are like-minded members of The Michigan Chamber of Commerce, the Small Business Association of Michigan (SBAM), Grand Rapids Area Chamber of Commerce, Michigan Manufacturing Association and The Michigan Business and Professional Association to cancel membership until these organizations withdraw their support of the Exchange."
    We agree. We also have joined this coalition to stop the expansion of Medicaid that promises only more generations of dependence and eventual higher taxes.

    Contacting committee members and parties involved must be done ASAP

    A simple action plan is available below the fold.

    for re-posting from Grassroots in Michigan

    And for adding your name to the Press Release

    I am watching the Committee hearings like a hawk to try and find out when the appropriations will be discussed. We won't have much time but hopefully we can get some folks to go and testify and send email testimony in also. We simply MUST stop the money

    During the debate over the 2010 federal health care overhaul, Democrats promised that illegal immigrants wouldn't be among the 27 million people who'd gain coverage. President Barack Obama repeated that pledge last month when he outlined his immigration plan.

    But while federal law generally bars illegal immigrants from being covered by Medicaid, a little-known part of the state-federal health insurance program for the poor has long paid about $2 billion a year for emergency treatment for a group of patients who, according to hospitals, mostly comprise illegal immigrants.
