California: Socialized Medicine Bill Defeated

======================================================================
From the HSLDA E-lert Service...
======================================================================



HSLDA is passing on this update from Roy Hanson and Jim Davis of
Family Protection Ministries (FPM) on AB 1670.

=====================================================================

LEGISLATIVE NEWSFLASH

April 27, 2005

AB 1670 (Assembly Members Joe Nation and Keith Richman) was Defeated!

We are very grateful to God for this victory. AB 1670, which was
jointly authored by a Democrat and a Republican, failed passage in the
Assembly Health Committee on Tuesday, April 26th. Thank you for your
response to our (FPM's) HELP Tree Alert. Your prayers and the calls
you made to your legislators over the past few days made the
difference.

AB 1670 would have moved all of California toward socialized medicine
similar to what was promoted by Hillary Clinton. It would have: 1)
destroyed the current system of choices of health care coverage; 2)
driven up the cost of both health care and health insurance coverage;
3) forced everyone to participate; 4) reduced the quality of health
care; 5) reduced the availability of health care, forcing some
families to go out of state to obtain health care for their family
members; and 6) created a new government bureaucracy with the
authority to make life and death medical decisions.

No further action is necessary on AB 1670.

AB 1670 would have affected every family and individual in California.

"The horse is prepared for the day of battle, but victory belongs to
the Lord." (Prov. 21:31)
