Hey everyone, I just got the word from a good friend in the Young Americans for Freedom that there is going to be a huge rally in Los Angeles across from the Federal Building, this Saturday, November 21st, from noon to 1:30. This is an extremely important rally, as we protest Pelosicare and all the nightmares a government run health care plan will produce.
Below is the email that was forwarded to me from Jordan Marks, the Executive Director of Young Americans for Freedom.
I have attached a video that Hugh Hewitt had created for this event and is
also featured on PJTV. I have also attached a flier. There is ample free
parking behind the Federal Building.
We have doctors and patients that will be speaking on health care and
Healthcare Reform. There will be healthcare related booths and tables with
information. Americans For Prosperity will have a booth and Peter Foy,
Chairman of AFP, LA, will be one of our speakers. The audience will be able
to ask questions of the doctors towards the end of the program. You will be
able to write your questions down on a 5×7 card and submit them. We will
try to read and answer as many questions as possible.
Hugh Hewitt is our MC, and we hope that Los Angeles will be a bigger rally
than Atlanta. There are about 5 other events taking place across the
country that day. Please spread the word, bring your families, your
neighbors, your friends, and all of the democrats that you know. Please
feel free to forward this email to your contact list.
This is truly a grassroots endeavor and I have been pleased to have been one
of the organizers of this event. I have been working with 1/2 dozen doctors
and a few other organizers over the last few weeks. The doctors are forming
a Southern California Chapter of www.docs4patientcare.org and you may go to the site to find their prescription for healthcare reform. Here is the direct link:
We have reached out to as many hospitals, doctors, nursing associations and
medical associations at the county and state levels as well as the Tea Party
Patriots to rally attention and support for this rally and this effort.
This event is informative and important. We must stop this legislation
being railroaded through Congress and we don’t have much time to do it. A
cloture vote on the “motion to proceed” is due to take place on Saturday in
the Senate, that is if Harry Reid proceeds prior to or after the CBO
I have written an article on this event which will be featured in
Here is a little information from the House Bill that may just get your
blood boiling enough to take action:
– SEC 59B (PP 297-299) WHEN YOU FILE YOUR TAXES, YOU MUST INCLUDE PROOF THAT YOU ARE IN A QUALIFIED HEALTH PLAN. IF NOT, YOU WILL BE FINED THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS. *ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS ARE EXEMPT FROM THIS REQUIREMENT.*
– THE SENATE FINANCE COMMITTEE HEALTH BILL RELEASED A FEW WEEKS BACK CONTROLS DOCTORS BY CUTTING THEIR PAY IF THEY GIVE OLDER PATIENTS MORE CARE THAN THE *GOVERNMENT DEEMS APPROPRIATE.* SEC 3003 (b( (P. 683) PUNISHES DOCTORS WHO LAND IN THE 90TH PERCENTILE OR ABOVE ON WHAT THEY PROVIDE FOR SENIORS ON MEDICARE BY WITHHOLDING 5 PERCENT OF THEIR COMPENSATION.
Thank you and look forward to seeing you on Saturday. I will be at the table
where you can sign up to receive updates, get a 5×7 card for your question,
and some additional information on how you can kill this bill. Please stop
by and say Hi.
