Congress Goes on August Recess without Voting on Health Care Reform

William A. Estrada, Esq.

August 10, 2009

Congress left Washington, D.C. last week without voting on H.R. 3200, the health care reform bill. Members of Congress will be in their district offices through September 7 for their summer vacation. Health care reform is scheduled to be the top priority when Congress returns.

Home School Legal Defense Association is still very concerned about H.R. 3200, especially with its creation of a federally funded home visitation program. We encourage you to contact your U.S. representative and your two U.S. senators and schedule a one-on-one meeting with them in their local offices to urge them to vote against H.R. 3200.

You can find the contact information for the local offices of your elected officials by visiting HSLDA’s Legislative Toolbox and putting in your ZIP code. You should call the office nearest to you and ask to meet with your representative or senator about the health care bill.

You can read HSLDA’s talking points about H.R. 3200 and more information about the bill on our legislation summary page. Please contact HSLDA’s Federal Relations Department at federalrelations@hslda.org or 540-338-5600 if you have any additional questions.
