Senator Nelson – Just Say No!!
To Senator Ben Nelson:
We, the undersigned, urge you not to turn your back on the people of America and the people of Nebraska. Tell Harry Reid NO – you will not support a bill that the people do not want.
1. Tell Harry Reid that a bill with $518.5 Billion in gross tax increases is unacceptable as are the following:
- $149 Billion tax increase on private health insurance plans
- $43 Billion in new taxes and fines levied on individuals and businesses
- More than $100 Billion in taxes and fees on the health care industry
- $87 Billion Medicare payroll tax
2. Tell Harry Reid that you won’t support $470.7 Billion in Medicare cuts, including $120 Billion in cuts to Medicare Advantage.
3. Tell Harry Reid that you are really pro life and won’t accept language that includes a provision “that allows states to prohibit abortion coverage in the exchanges.” but does not require them to do so.
4. Tell Harry Reid that you will not support health care legislation that still increases costs according to the Congressional Budget Office which says “Under the legislation, federal outlays for health care would increase during the 2010-2019 period as would the Federal Budgetary Commitment to Health Care.”
5. Tell Harry Reid you will not vote for a bill that creates a voluntary federal insurance program for home and community-based long term care services. (Class Act still in the Bill) Keep your promise that it would come out of any bill.
Make Your Mark
