[Peninsula-Patriots] Fwd: Obamacare Opposition Day at the VA Capitol - MONDAY

More to do!  So much is coming at us and it all seems like NOW!   Consider this opportunity to make a difference.   If you're going, be back for our meeting at 7 p.m. on Monday evening at the Middlesex Sportsmans Hunt Club...

I have also heard that the states are now trying to dump their retirement pension plans, including health care, into "Obamacare" as a way of getting out of the debt.   Not good.  Rahm Emanuel is trying this in Illinois.

 Forwarded message:

Please forward to everyone you know who hates Obamacare and could come to Richmond on Monday.. Medicaid expansion would be a huge step toward a single payer system.

STOP Medicaid Expansion
Monday, June 17th,1PM (meet up in conference room 5E 11AM)  
 Show opposition to expansion 
by helping to pack this meeting
"Rumor has it that the commission is caving to pressure"
 Supporters of expansion will be there in force
The Medicaid Innovation and Reform Commission (MIRC) is comprised of five senators and five delegates plus two non-voting members from the Governor's office. The votes of only three senators and three delegates would expand this program by an estimated 400,000 individuals. Expansion would result in 1.3 million Virginians on Medicaid which is already one of Virginia's biggest 'Budget Buster Programs'. [It is beyond comprehension that our elected representatives would seriously consider a 44% increase in this welfare program]
On Monday we will be letting commission members know that nothing could justify this massive program expansion which depends on funding from the Federal government that currently borrows 43 cents of every dollar.  WE THE PEOPLE of Virginia have had enough!
House committee members: Joannou, Landes, Massie, O'Bannon, Sherwood
Senate committee members: Hanger, Howell, Lucas, Stosch, Watkins
