It is an ungodly mess of errors, loopholes, and massive giveaways. When the American people find out what's actually in this bill, they will revolt. Congress and President Obama have no choice but to do better for health care than this bill.
Sign the petition: the Senate health care bill must be killed.
How bad is the bill?
- Forces you to pay up to 8% of your income to private insurance corporations -- whether you want to or not
- If you refuse to buy the insurance, you'll have to pay penalties of up to 2% of your annual income to the IRS
- After being forced to pay thousands in premiums for junk insurance, you can still be on the hook for up to $11,900 a year in out-of-pocket medical expenses.
- Massive restriction on a woman's right to choose, designed to trigger a challenge to Roe v. Wade in the Supreme Court
- Paid for by taxes on
the middle class insurance plan you have right now through your employer,
causing them to cut back benefits and increase
I could go on, but it should be clear: this is not reform. This is a con job.
Sign our petition: kill the Senate bill.
Make no mistake, we need health care reform. But the Senate's idea of reform is a disaster, and will make things far worse than they are today.
We will continue to fight for real health care reform. Now, we must kill this fake reform.
Thanks for all you do.
