The following is from an email sent out by Jack Hoogendyk. There is a hearing Thursday regarding Health Care Exchanges. If you can't be there, call your Rep.
Here is a very informative letter from Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals rejecting state run health exchanges. It is loaded with great talking points.
Here is an excellent article from the Mackinac Center's Jack McHugh on why "No State Obamacare Exchange is Still the Best Choice".
Here is a link to an email from Melanie Kurdys. She invites you to "plagiarize" her content.
Here is an excerpt from an email I received from a doctor who is a member of Docs4PatientCare: "Marleau's exchange bill comes up tomorrow for "discussion" & Haines's office could not confirm or deny a vote. It's maddening. Just read Marleau's bill, all the "non-profit" board members, crony, crony, crony. The really scary part that most people don't realize, is 30% of employers will be dropping insurance... so exchanges ARE personal. Many people will find themselves in this boondoggle. I feel like the fix is in, but its worth filling up the inboxes & voicemail of the health policy committee tonight."
You NEED to contact your state representative. You do not need to contact Senators. The bill already went through the Senate months ago. But, you should also contact the members of the House Health Policy Committee.
