HSLDA: Calls Needed to Stop Senate Health Care Bill

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

Urgent calls are needed to members of the U.S. Senate's Finance
Committee to urge senators to oppose the health care bill. The
Finance Committee plans on voting on their version of the bill today,
Tuesday, October 13.

There are many reasons to oppose the Finance Committee's health care
bill:

> It will create a government home visitation program, with federally
funded bureaucrats giving out parenting advice, and nothing in the
bill makes it clear that these programs must be voluntary;

> It will result in a hugely expensive federal government take-over of
health care decisions, currently made by families and doctors--and
taxpayers will foot the bill;

> No one knows what the bill actually says--the Senate Finance
Committee will merely vote on a summary bill, and the actual text of
the bill will be added at some later point. Dangerous legislative
language could be added at a later time with no chance to read and
analyze it.

Please call your two U.S. senators immediately and urge them to vote
against the health care bill for the reasons listed above. You can
reach your senators by calling the Capitol Switchboard at
202-224-3121. This number is frequently busy, so put in your ZIP code
at HSLDA's legislative toolbox at http://www.hslda.org/toolbox to find
the phone numbers of your two U.S. senators.

BACKGROUND

The Senate Finance Committee is the final committee to vote on health
care reform. Various versions of the bill have passed the Senate
Health Committee and three House committees. If the bill passes the
Senate Finance Committee on Tuesday, the bill will be merged with the
health care bill passed by the Senate Health Committee in September,
and sent to the Senate floor for a final vote.

Although only senators on the Senate Finance Committee will be voting
on the health care bill on Tuesday, we encourage you to call your two
U.S. senators, even if they are not on the Finance Committee.

Thank you for standing with us for liberty.

Sincerely,

Mike Smith
President, HSLDA
