I am going to spend my next few posts reprinting some information from someone who has actually read the Health Care Bill. I am giving anyone who wants to permission to reprint this all over the web and as far and wide as you can get it. This bill is evil and as you read the information, you will see why I say that. There is too much information to post in one post, so I will be spreading it out over several. We must contend with and defeat this travesty that the Obama administration and his congress are trying to put over on the American people.
The following is a brief outline of this bill put together by Mat Staver of the Freedom Foundation and Liberty Counsel (contact info is at the end). The comments by the brief are Mat’s, except where I have noted my own by putting them in italics. The bold is also mine.–Rick Joyner
After reading, please do not wait to contact your representatives to protest this. If you don’t get through, keep calling, send emails, but do not stop until you know your voice has been heard.
