Support Health Freedom in NC and every state in the US
Dear NC Health Freedom Supporters,
Thank you for continuing your communication campaign (phone calls, emails, letters, fax messages, and personal visits) to let your representatives know that you want Health Freedom Legislation to pass in North Carolina!
After spending several days in the Legislative Office Building speaking with the Representatives and asking our Lobbyist Mike what he had heard, OUR VOICES ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE!! The Representatives are getting the message!
Last week we were waiting for our bill, HB 842, to be heard by the House Committee on Health. After opposition from the medical doctors lobbying group, the NC Medical Society, our main bill sponsor, Rep. Earline Parmon, began negotiations with the Medical Society to come up with language that will be acceptable to both sides.
A break-through negotiations meeting took place on Monday, May 11, 2009 in Rep. Parmon’s office. Rep. Parmon, Representatives from Health Freedom Now campaign, Diane Miller, JD, the NC Medical Society and legal staff were present to thoroughly discuss ways to make this legislation happen in this legislative session. The NC Medical Society is now drafting proposed changes that we hope will be mutually agreeable to all parties involved. Rep. Parmon expects to hear back from the Medical Society within the next few days.
We DO HAVE several ways to PRESERVE the Health Freedom bill this session. For now, please continue sending letters, making phone calls, emails and faxes. Pass out petitions in your neighborhood, your gym, your church, at your children’s soccer games (you get the message) and let’s continue to gather as many signatures as we can. And remember to send a small donation (we’ll take the big ones too!) to the CHF so we can pay YOUR LOBBYIST, who has made it possible to have the support in the legislature we now have!
Please stay on Alert!
We will keep you informed on other actions as they arise. Please remember to forward our emails to everyone you know that can benefit from Health Freedom. Let them know they can join our mailing list by clicking here: http://www.ncchf.org/ and signing up at the “join our mailing list” box on the left side.
The Board of Directors of Citizens for Healthcare Freedom Thanks You!!
