There are so many things to be worried about right now in our state. Who will be the next Governor? Will taxes go up or spending finally be brought under control? With so much to worry about, it is easy to forget how angry, shocked and appalled we were when Congress passed the healthcare "reform" bill.
That is by design. It wasn't the shot heard around the world, it was more like a small cut on your foot that hurts, but doesn't look like it would kill you. Yeah, it is a bit painful; but after a few days you just move on. The only problem is that an infection is raging just under the skin and is threatening your life.
That is what this healthcare bill is. We felt the initial sting, but maybe have moved on to one of the other issues that are capturing the medias' attention. While we have moved one, the political elite are busy implementing the massive regulation, new taxes and other elements of the bill. I am asking you to pause for a moment and consider again the impact of this healthcare bill on your life and on our country.
There is no shortage of bad news about this bill. From Taxes to Penalties for Small Businesses, this bill is going to hurt our economy. And if Massachusetts is an indication of how our care will go, that isn't looking good either. But we can fight back!
Michigan Citizens for Healthcare Freedom is working to make sure that what happened in Canada and Massachusetts can't happen here in Michigan. We are working to make sure the government can't get between you and your doctor. To do this we need to collect 500,000 signatures on a petition to add a constitutional amendment to the November ballot. Join the fight by going to www.michiganhcf.com to find out more!
