I am sending this letter to a few friends. This is as critical as it is unbelievable.:
Several days ago, house rules chairwoman Louise Slaughter began preparing a rule that would consider the Senate health care bill as passed in the House of Representatives without the House actually having to vote for it. That’s right. The house is planning to approve a bill without voting on it!
According to radio talk show host Mark Levin:
“Republicans now expect Democrats to pass health care through the House with a trick only Capitol Hill could dream up: approving the Senate bill without voting on it. “Democrats will vote on a separate bill that includes language stating that the original Senate bill is ‘deemed passed.’ So by voting for the first bill — a reconciliation measure to fix certain things in the Senate bill — that will automatically pass the second bill — the original Senate bill — without a separate roll call taking place”.
According to Congressman Eric Cantor:

Our health care system is the best in the world. Still, it can be improved. There is much fraud in Medicare and Medicaid. Tort reform is badly needed. The cost of prescriptions can be reduced. Instead of opening the floor to debate, the Senate needs to start over and involve all our Senators, not just a select few. The same goes for the House. This bill needs to be scrapped. It is nothing but a wealth redistribution bill.
Please take the time to immediately call AND write the representatives that are undecided on this issue. Please also ask as many other s to do the same as possible.
President Obama has postponed the start of his vacation from March 18 until March 21. The weekend of March 19-21 will be critical. There is nothing more important than letting Congress know how you feel. If this bill passes, it will fundamentally and permanently change our country.
