My congressman, Adam Schiff, is having a town hall meeting on the so-called health care "reform" next Tuesday at 7pm in Alhambra, California.
Now, why would I promote this for my Democrat congressman?
Because it is important that Congressman Schiff knows that there are those of us that oppose the proposal that will nationalize one-sixth of the economy.
Now, it is also important that if we do participate in any town hall on health care that we are respectful to any congressman or congresswoman. We should make our comments and ask our questions. But, it will not help if we sound like a "truther" or a "birther".
There are some serious questions to ask any member of congress that support or plans to support this government take over of our health care delivery system.
Here are a few
How do you plan to pay for this without raising taxes on the middle class?
Can you assure any one that is on a private health insurance plan through their employer that they will be able to keep it?
Can you assure that we will be able to keep our current doctor?
Can you assure that there will never be health care rationing?
Will you oppose any aspect of the bill that would encourage a government representative to visit elderly people and talk about "end of life options"?
Will you admit that this will be a back-door move for the government to fund abortions?
There are many others and I encourage you to think about what you would ask your congressman or congresswoman if given the opportunity.
This is a great link and it is being constantly updated as more members of congress provide the dates and times of their town halls on so-called health care "reform".
Many members of congress have faced the wrath of voters that are rightfully concerned about this impending legislation. These are not paid people getting wads of cash from the eeevvviiillll health insurance companies. BTW, if there is a money train I will be on it as fast as lightning! They, we want to make our voices heard. Just as those on the superbly organized other side will. But, we must do so with honor and dignity. Leave the theatrics to the other side.
I give Congressman Schiff credit for holding this meeting. And when I am there and if I have the opportunity to ask a question, I will do so not in anger but wanting an answer. That is all I or anyone else can do.
Here is the location information for Congressman Schiff's town hall:
Alhambra Civic Center Library Community Room on 101 S. First Street, Alhambra.
The event will be from 7 PM to 8:30 PM PST
