Saturday 3,20.10 UPDATE: Do go to CSPAN and see the POTUS's speech from today, it was very inspiring.Do also keep Calling your REPS it is Working !!! Shoq Made this Great Helpful Phone List, COMPLETE Fencesitter list of WHO to call and email and their Contact Info.
First off there are STILL DEMS that are sitting on a pretty thorny Fence. CBS Blog has great post WHO needs Phone Calls TODAY.... Scroll down and read the names and Start CALLING...there are over 50 Million with NO Health care...and not all are Dems even.But Millions of Americans NEED HCR see below: (DC Contact Information is linked to the Title). We also are doing this for our Children, they can not be forced to continue to face the Health Care Nightmare Millions of us are struggling with everyday. Medicare was not perfect when it was passed in the Sixties,but it has been improved to a working sustainable system for Millions today. Now is our time to change History.

WHY should you call ? Because we have millions of Americans that are fighting Diseases So if you scroll down here are the FACTS so you can be persuasive on the phone.....

36% of ALL Americans Seeking Health Insurance at this time are denied Health Care and Health Insurance due to Preexisting Conditions ( health and family history). Click here to learn about these Denials-PDF. HCR would end this Form of Discrimination once and for all.It will allow millions to finally have access to Healthcare,it will take time. But this is our moment to Change History regarding this issue.

(1) 45,000 Americans are Dying a year with NO Healthcare ( Harvard Study),Some one dies every 8minutes from NO Healthcare.
That we have this horrendous statistic is Shameful for a country with wonderful Hospitals and Healthcare available to the Rich.

(3) 11 Million Americans fighting CANCER need Healthcare Reform.

(4) 24 Million Americans living with Diabetes need Health Care Reform Now

(5) 350,000 Americans living with MS need HCR now.

(6) 81 Million Americans living with Heart Disease and Strokes need HCR.

(7) Women need Health Care Reform now . In this post Karoli Kuns explains why HCR will aid women and children, the history behind the situation. Another article in The Nation explores how women are not only an Underclass but face discrimination as gender discrimination is a part of the UnInsuring Women as being Female has become a Pre-existing Condition in the past 10 years.

(8) Autistic Children and Families need, 1/110 Children have Autism and need HCR now.

(9) HIV/AIDS Patients need Reform because they are Being Cancelled and Targeted for Cancellation, they also need HCR.

(10) 17,000 More People Losing Health Insurance EVERY DAY, that is over HALF MILLION every month....In 2008 the last Census Numbers acknowledged 47 Million without Health Care and Health Insurance.But since that time over 6.5 Million have lost their jobs and Health Care and Insurance. This many people UnEmployed and UnInsured without Healthcare, is a Health Care Crisis.These numbers also do not account the Underemployed or UnderInsured that also need HCR now.

(11) One in FOUR Californians Have No Insurance and the Numbers continue too soar there, they need HCR.

(12) 62% ALL Bankruptcies are due to Medical Debt, People are losing their Homes everyday while Battling Health Problems, and they too need HCR.

(13) Millions of People have been denied Healthcare and Health Insurance , atleast 30 Million , they need HCR now.

(14) 100,000 New Kidney Disease Patients a year need HCR .

(15) Lung Disease Patients Including those suffering with Allergies,Asthma and COPD are in need of HCR now.
Do you need Information about the CBO score ? Here is the Analysis that shows that HCR saves Lives and Money.... 138 Billion Dollars over the next 10 yrs is Saved, and it presents biggest deficit reduction measure in 25 years.
Rep.Slaughter has posted the NEW Updated Reconciliation Bill on her website....DO check it out
Our Favorite HCR Warrior Mom Midge Hough in Chicago speaks up and asks us all to call our reps and ask for them to Vote for HCR NOW, she has worked tirelessly for the loss of her UnInsured young daughter-in-law Jenny who died this past year.....Please help honor Jenny's Memory.

"The work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives and the dreams shall never die." Senator Ted Kennedy.....

Please do Watch President Obama Speak in Virginia today will be the last HCR speech before Sunday's Vote....

Enigma Final Thoughts ...Remember this Historic Legislation will effect the lives of our Children....and it will Save Lives.Yesterday I was at the pharmacy and saw a young nun with a pin on her habit, "I support Life,I support HCR".
This bill is about Life,Saving Lives that we are losing every day now. (and yes, I gave her a Hug). So please call your reps,
Tell them to Have Courage and Make History and Help Save Lives.Thank you.

I did write to Bocerri:
As an Ohio Resident who is very concerned about the Health Care Crisis in our Country , I like Millions of Americans am UnInsured.I also know because I am an RN that many of those UnInsured are truly facing Misery as they struggle and fight Healthcare Battles with no HealthCare because they have been denied coverage by Insurance Companies. I also know that 45,000 Americans die a year with no Health Care. No One in America should be dying without care.

Please do think of helping to save lives in America.Please Vote Yes on this historic Measure.
Please have courage.

If you call and they bring up
"Abortion Language or Fetal Rights as a reason for Concerns".....

Explain calmly that 45,000 Living Breathing Americans are dying each year with NO Health care....

(or any of the figures above)...

to be honest it caught me at a loss-by the 3rd call where that issue was sited I was really distressed..

Living Breathing UnInsured Americans deserve access and care....

Fran said...

I am bridging the gap of two issues, as I plan on doing an anniversary memorial vigil to acknowledge the 7th year anniversary of the Iraq war.

The two topics are interrelated.... if we quite spending $ on war, we'd have money for healthcare.

So I made a

HEALTHCARE NOT WARFARE sign, connecting the dots.

I've gotten tickler e mails to put pressure on Peter DeFazio- Oregon House Rep, and I have both called his office & sent a few e mails.

He is one of those guys who keeps rubber stamping war funding.

Sorry, but if one of the opposing arguments about HCR is how to fund it, then I want to respond that funds are readily available if we pull the plug on the 2 wars, How much does it cost to maintain the "Empire"-- the US maintains 177 military bases worldwide.

Our country is obsessed w military madness, to the point we fund guns & wars instead of health care.... with the people's money.

Funding healthcare is the most sane & responsible thing the government can do with the people's money.

Fran said...

BTW~ I tried calling Kucinich to thank him, but his voice mail box is full.

I hope it is full with people saying thank you for voting w the majority of Americans who want health care reform.

Yes, this is a watered down version, and I agree with all the things he REALLY wanted in healthcare reform-- mainly taking it out of the hands of for profit companies..... but we have to start somewhere.

enigma4ever said...

Thanks Fran...
I thank you for your thoughts as always...and yes, I share your concerns...and yes Dennis definently deserves thanks...

we have to start Somewhere ...NOW...

and we are at that moment...


the Fierce Urgency of NOW....

we stand on the threshold of History...

and yes it is true that if Bush had not pissed so much blood and money on an illegal war things might be so so different today...

but here we are...

and we must fight for what we can....

HCR is a start...
just like MEdicare in the Sixties..
it will need much repair, tweaking...and work...
but maybe just maybe Our Children will have HC4ALL.....just maybe...

and Descrimination against Anyone denying them access to healthcare will end in Our Lifetimes...

that is what I pray and hope happens...
