This morning I received this email from Health Care for America NOW:
Passing health care reform will save you money. Not passing it will save millionaires money. Will your Representative choose the millionaires or you?
The health care reform bill being voted on in the House this week will save you an average of $2,200 per year.1 This bill says those who make more than a quarter of a million dollars a year should help pay for reform by rolling back Bush’s tax cuts for the rich.2
One of the excuses some Members of Congress are using to avoid voting for this health reform bill is that this bill raises taxes on small business. They couldn’t be more wrong.
According to the non-partisan Joint Committee on Taxes, 96% of small businesses would not be affected by rolling back Bush’s tax cuts, and this bill would in fact lower these businesses’ health care costs.3
That’s why small business owners all across America are supporting this bill.
This bill guarantees us quality, affordable health care. It will cover the uninsured and lower the costs for those of us who have insurance. Let’s pass this bill, so we can all have quality, affordable health care.
To your health,
Health Care for America Now
As I’m reading the email I hear Fox News saying that there are members that are saying that they are closer than ever on the Healthcare bill and that they may be close to a vote.
I’m not buying the coincidence. I would not be surprised at all if the Dems announced that they didn’t have the votes to get everyone to back off and give them some breathing room – then they surprise us all with a vote.
Have you called/emailed your Congressman today!!!!!!
UPDATE – Senator Judd Gregg is talking about this now – they’re talking about taking out the ‘government’ public option and putting in the ‘co-op’ plan – one problem – we don’t know what the co-op plan is!! Tell them to read the damn bill………………or vote no.
