Dear friends:
The enclosed message is disturbing to say the least.  Particularly with our ages and PD conditions in mind, please take the time to be informed of the ramifications of the Health Care Reform Bill.  I believe you will, as I am, completely shocked that such a discussion could be taking place in our country.
Incidentally, after I expressed concern last week to Congressman Bill Nelson, he replied by  correspondence that he is fully endorsing this bill……………………  I wonder if it is ANOTHER bill that the congress has not taken the time to read?

Everyone must read the message below and please listen to the Fred Thompson interview. Facts about the Health Care Bill are revealed on the interview that you haven’t heard on television or  the presidents speech this past week. This is not a spin story, but real facts. Please read and listen to the interview and e-mail it on. THIS IS A MUST READ FOR ALL OF US !!!!!!!!!!

Subject: Page 425 of Health Care Bill

This indeed takes a shot at retirees–we cannot let this happen to us–tell all your friends by voice, email, phone or letter that it is totally unacceptible!!!!!!
This is unbelievable. I already called AARP to ask them why they represent us and support this house bill. Believe it or not this organization does not have an e-mail contact that you can register your comment. You can either call or post your comment and mail it to them.

>  Page 425 of Health Care Bill – Listen to this interview Fred Thompson’s Radio Show interviewing20Betsy McCaughey (pronounced Mc Coy).  Or look it up on www.fredthompsonshow.com, under interviews.
> On page 425 it says in black and white that EVERYONE on Social Security, (will include all Senior Citizens and SSI people) will go to MANDATORY counseling every 5 years to learn and to choose from ways to end your suffering (and your life).  Health care will be denied based on age.  $500 Billion will be cut from Seniors healthcare.   The only way for that to happen is to drastically cut health care, the oldest and the sickest will be cut first.   Paying for your own care will not be an=2 0option.
>Now, CALL YOUR PEOPLE IN WASHINGTON !!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!  Tell them to read page 425 if they don’t read anything else.  Surely  some of them have parents.
>”ON PAGE 425 OF OBAMA’S HEALTH CARE BILL, the Federal Government will require EVERYONE who is on Social Security to undergo a counseling session every 5 years with the objective being that they will explain to them just how to end their own life earlier. Yes…They are going to push SUICIDE to cut medicare spending!”
