Health Care
By La Shaine Reynolds


August 08, 2009

Let me start by introducing myself, my name is La Shaine Reynolds and what I have e-mailed you is what is in our health care package that the President is trying to get passed. I am sending this to every newspaper that I can in the U.S.. I am also sending this to CNN, Headline News, Fox, and where ever I can send this. Everyone deserves to know what they are up against. And I am exercising my freedom of speech.

As you can see the following information is upsetting to say the least. This is what is in this bill. This is the what the President and Congress is trying to get passed. As you can see if this gets passed you will have to turn over any and all bank accounts so they can draw funds out. Also they are wanting to have the choice to put anyone to death that they choose to do so. Imagine if your child, your mom, your dad, your wife, other family members get sick with cancer, heart disease, or even mental illness and, according to this health bill, the government decides that since they aren't going to get well, they just put them to death. Just look at a small child and imagine the government putting them to death. They say history has a way of repeating itself.

So my question to everyone is, are we going to put up with this? This man who is our President is trying to kill us! As I mentioned above I am taking one state at a time and sending this to every newspaper I can and I hope that you will print this. People deserve to know this information. Don't ignore this because if you do, you have condemned your self and everyone else to death if the government and President chose to do so. I chose my home state first, North Carolina and tomorrow I'm starting in alphabetical order and I will get this out. It's up to you to let the truth be told!

But before you start sending me hateful e-mails go to the website and read it for yourselves. I'm not a mean or hateful person. I'm just a concerned citizen just like you. The web address is at the bottom. It make take it awhile due to it being over 1,000 pages. You have the Right To Read The Bill. You are suppose to have 72 hours to read it. You want me to listen to you please give me the same consideration and respect. If I was a senator or part of the government in any way you would listen to me.

There are links to the House website at the end. It takes a long time to load it's 1018 pages, but worth the wait! I encourage you to read the bill. You won't go far before your "no way; this cannot be true" comments will become audible and those around you will ask, "What are you reading!" I thought the excerpts were wild. Wait till you read them in context!
