Senate May Take “Advanced Care Planning” Off the Table

Posted by courage On September - 26 - 2009

While this all sounds good and fine, as far as the Senate leaving the “Advanced Care Planning Consolations” aspect off of their bill; I remain concerned/skeptical should a House and Senate Health Care bill pass, that during the course of the “reconciliation process” the Advanced Care Planning will reappear.

These are true patriots!  They have taken time away from family, friends and life to question their paid servants (aka Senators and Congresspersons), to voice legitimate concerns regarding health care “reform” which threatens to fundamentally redefine health care in the United States.

The recess may be over and Congressional Reps may be feeling snug back in their contained bubble of Washington, where they feel supreme in their position.

But a tide is rolling in to the capital.. a wave of patriots will soon fill the streets and once more make their presence known.  We The People are Coming…

We will be joining these concerned citizens.. if you cannot attend, I urge you to write, call, fax or email you Reps sometime this week.  Let these arrogant servants of the people know that while you may not be in Washington physically, your heart and spirit rests with those marching on Saturday.

Starting on Thursday night, we will be updating with thoughts and pictures from our journey to Washington.
