I received the following email at the beginning of the weekend requesting help to get an additional 70,000 signers. They now only need about 48,000. If you were thinking/planning of signing, do it now before Tuesday 5pm, eastern. It will be delivered to Congress on Wednesday.
The petition states:
“I, the undersigned citizen of the United States, petition the U.S. Congress to stop any increased role of the government in my health care decisions. I also petition the U.S. Congress to protect my right to choose my own doctors and hospitals without delay or denial, to obtain care that is patient-centered, and to have health insurance that is personal, portable and best suits my needs.”
We need your help! Your “Free Our Health Care NOW!” petition, www.freeourhealthcarenow.com, needs only 70,000 48,000 more supporters to become the largest policy petition in American history delivered to Congress! With your help, more than 1.3 million Americans will make their voice heard!
YOUR MISSION: To inspire 70,000 48,000 Americans to sign the “Free Our Health Care NOW!” petition and make it the largest policy petition ever delivered to Congress. If each of you recruits just one more signer together we will make history!
TIMETABLE: On your behalf, we will deliver the “Free Our Health Care NOW!” petition to Congress on Wednesday, September 9. The final tally of petition supporters will occur the day before, at 5pm on Tuesday, September 8. We have 96 hours to accomplish our mission!
THE REASON: As taxpayers and as patients, the American people simply can’t afford government-run health care. Quality and access will decrease; costs will skyrocket; rationing will be in place! This is your petition, your voice and your opportunity to fight for your country!
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT? Many of the members of your community are thinking about health care. They’re worried, angry and uncertain. They’re tired of the rhetoric and they want change that they can trust.
This is a mission we can accomplish together. We have a purpose which cannot be denied: to protect the health of our family, our friends, and our country!
