-- contact House Speaker Joe Hackney about House Bill 901, A BILL THAT PROPOSES THAT WE VOTE to amend the constitution to assert that Health care is a right for all North Carolinians.
This bill is stuck in the rules committee and Joe Hackney has the power to move it into the Policy committee. He might do it if there is public outcry. there are 37 cosponsors and 80 endorsing organizations.. then it would be put on the November 8th ballot.
A state constitutional amendment to vote on would stimulate healthy debate. It is time. There is going to be thinking going on with the viewing of Sicko,
-- there will be plenty of information for people to chew on. It seems like everyone has a family member or friend who is going bankrupt paying their medical bills..
Verla Insko, the bill's sponsor for several legislative years, has the idea that we can all agree on the concept of health care for all...
----, and we have a hard time agreeing on the implementation--
so why not get the concept passed, and then be assured that the state citizens are behind getting a plan.
I urge you to contact House Speaker Joe Hackney and express your support for a state House Bill 901. A simple email to Joeh@ncleg.net or a call: 919-733-3451 saying you support this bill is enough to make a difference. He needs to know there are people who support it before he can act.
Please copy your legislator when you write to Joe. And one should sign email with your address when writing representatives.
