Rep. Dina Titus to Host Health Care Forum

“When: October 19th, 2009 at 7:00 PM
Where: Temple Ner Tamid, 55 North Valle Verde Drive, Henderson, Nevada 98074
Congresswoman Dina Titus is hosting a health care forum Monday October 19th to hear your concerns about government run health care. It is critical that we show up in force to take a stand against a government take over of our health care. Please bring your friends, family, and neighbors to this important event. Make sure your voice is heard but remember to be respectful and polite.”

From the website of Congresswoman Dina Titus:

“Health Care
Congresswoman Titus understands that Americans across the country are struggling to afford the high price of health care or lack access to the care they need. In Nevada nearly a quarter of 18- to 64-year-olds go without health care coverage. Nevada’s small businesses are also feeling the strain, as the high cost of health care is making them less competitive and dragging them down at a time when they are struggling to stay afloat.  The average American family pays an extra $1,100 a year in premiums to support the uninsured. And with premiums having doubled in nine years and growing three times as fast as wages, now is the time to act.

Reforming our health care system must not unfairly burden small businesses. Small businesses are the engines of growth in our economy, and their recovery will be critical to our efforts to pull Nevada out of this recession and create jobs that put people back to work.

Congresswoman Titus believes that to make health insurance reform a success, we must do it right and ensure that people who like their doctor or current plan can keep both.  She supports ending the practice of denial based on preexisting conditions, preventing insurance companies from placing a cap or limit on the benefits they will cover, and eliminating co-pays for preventive care. She supports cutting back on waste, fraud and abuse in the system and investing in health information technology, which will make health care more efficient and affordable by reducing administrative costs and duplicative tests.  Congresswoman Titus also believes in the need to control skyrocketing drug prices and keep seniors out of the donut hole.”

“The Medicare Premium Fairness Act before you today will eliminate this inequity and protect all Medicare enrollees so that no senior will see his or her premium increase or experience a Social Security check decrease.  Because this bill is fully paid for by using existing funds including the Medicare Improvement Fund and it meets the PAYGO requirements, it is a responsible way to stand up and provide for our seniors during these tough economic times.”

 

October 8, 2009
“Today is a sad day for Nevada’s seniors as Senate Republicans stood against them in order to block legislation that would prevent an increase in Medicare premiums.  With nearly 134,000 Social Security beneficiaries in my district, it is critical that Congress act to protect seniors from higher Medicare premiums at a time when every dollar counts and family budgets are stretched thin.”

I spoke to Larry Sinclair first thing this morning, Wednesday, August 19, 2009. Larry was on his way to see his good buddy Joe Biden, you know, the one who had Larry arrested on trumped up charges last year in Washington DC and Delaware. Here are some comments from Larry Sinclair:

GOOD MORNING FROM ORLANDO
Good morning from Orlando, Florida. As I prepare to protest Joe Biden’s visit it has come to my attention that Rep. Suzanne Kosmas announced THIS morning that she plans to hold a tele-town hall on Health Care Reform this evening after mingling with Joe Biden and wealthy campaign donors later this morning.

Anyone in the Congresswoman’s district 24 should come on down to the Orlando Marriott Hotel Downtown and let the Congresswoman know how you feel about her refusal to take time for a face to face Town Hall while having all the time in the world for a face to face with big money donors!

No amount of money is going to help Rep. Kosmas or Rep. Alan Grayson come 2010. You don’t ignore the people you were elected to represent and then expect them to give you another term to slap them in the face again.

I will update later. Rain expected off and on all day today.”

Attention Residents of Florida’s 8th Congressional District
Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) from Florida’s 8th congressional district (including Winter Park and Orlando) is going to be at the Orlando Marriott Hotel Downtown, 400 W Livingston, tomorrow, Wednesday August 19,2009. If you live in Grayson’s district (and even if you don’t) and are angry at Rep. Grayson’s Town Hall Fraud, please come down to the Marriott Hotel tomorrow between 9:30 AM and 12:30 PM and let him know how you feel.

Grayson held a Town Hall in a Union Hall Monday night after lying about when it was announced and how it was promoted. Grayson claimed he announced the Town Hall 72 hours in advance, but in reality had only notified Orlando TV Stations around 8:00 PM Sunday evening. But that is nothing compared to what Grayson did at the meeting.

Rep. Alan Grayson filled the IBEW Local 606 Union Hall with OFA, HCAN and Union supporters of Obama Health Care Reform before opening the doors to only approximately 30 people who had been standing outside in line in the central Florida heat for hours.”
