A special message from our partners over at American Grass Roots:
PATIENT POWER ALERT!
You must take action TONIGHT!
Tell White House & Congress To Start with a BLANK PAGE on Health Care Reform!
Last week Dr. Tom Price (R-GA) told Democrats and the White House that the only acceptable agenda for the health care summit is a BLANK PAGE.
We agree, so let’s get our message to them.
TAKE ACTION TONIGHT!
Send FAXES to the White House & Congress!
FAX the WHITE HOUSE and DEMOCRATS in Congress
WITH A BLANK AGENDA, and your name.
PLEASE WRITE THIS SIMPLE MESSAGE,
“HEALTH CARE REFORM STARTS HERE:”
AND SIGN YOUR NAME AT THE BOTTOM. Be sure to leave the middle of the page BLANK.
If we start sending the faxes tonight, they won’t be in their offices to turn off the machines, and will have a pile of blank pages in the morning - to understand the point: we don't want their government-run healthcare schemes!
WHITE HOUSE FAX: (202) 456.2461
FIND CONGRESS FAX # AT www.Congress.org
A list of the House and Senate Democrats attending the summit is below, along with their fax numbers. You could also fax to their district offices.
Please sign the PETITION for the Republicans to "Stand Firm" and not make any concessions.
We have already reminded the Republicans to “Stand Firm.”

“How Wall St Destroyed Private Medicine”

At my annual check-up, my doctor handed me a sheet explaining the reasons for office fee increases for Medicare Patients. It is worth reporting at length.
Medicare fixes the prices for Medicare patients' health care. All office charges for Medicare, including office visit charges, have been set by the Federal government since 1984. In real terms (adjusted for inflation), these fixed prices are less today than they were three decades ago. [READ COLUMN & COMMENT]
