  • What We’d Like You To Ask Your Congressman Over the August Recess

    “Congressman, have you read the health care bill?” (Honestly, it’s the question of Patients United Now, but it’s a really good question.)

    (H/T – Red State, via Hot Air Headlines and Politico)

    This is a great question you should your congressman, be it…oh, I don’t know…Pete Visclosky, Joe Donnelly, Andre Carson, Brad Ellsworth or Baron Hill, decide to hold a health care town hall in your district.  Heck, Evan Bayh may decide to do town halls across the state.  After all, he is up for re-election next year and he needs to emerge from his cozy northern Virginia hovel to return to Indiana to remind us he is still our senator.

    And since Moe Lane at Red State also wrote a handy primer to go with the above question, I thought, “maybe I can come up with some suggestions of my own too!”  But why reinvent the wheel?.  I’ll just post his thoughts here.

    (Read more after the leap)

    • Bring a video camera. If you don’t have one, this onelooks cheap enough.
    • Bring a friend to hold the video camera while you talk.
    • Walk right up to your representative, identify yourself clearly, loudly, and politely, make sure that you say the magic words “…and I live in your district…,” and ask him or her whether they read the ‘health care bill’ in full before they voted on it.
    • Remember: this question has a yes or no answer.
    • You are not required to accept anything else than yes or no.
    • You are not required to participate in an argument on the merits of health care.
    • You are not required to tolerate their attempts to change the subject.
    • You are not required to not make this politely, yet firmly clear to your legislator.
    • This is why you need the second person, so that you can concentrate on the matter at hand and let him or her worry about camera angles and whatnot.

    And, lastly:

    • If they actually wimp out and recess before voting on the bill, change the question to “Will you read the ‘health care’ bill in full before you vote on it, etc, etc?”  Again, it’s a yes or no question – and for this one, if they give you an attitude you may smile sweetly and remind your legislator of the notorious fact that nobody in the Democratic Party read the stimulus and/or cap and trade before they voted for it.

    Hope this helps.  Have fun!

    Moe Lane

    PS: Do this all politely.  Let the Left scream and rant; you’re there to get your legislator on the record.  And if they refuse to do that, well, that’s worth uploading to a video sharing site right there.

    I wholeheartedly endorse this plan.

      I would like my congressman to read the entire 1,017 page bill. For my own part, I'd prefer to read a comprehensive and accurate summary. Can you post a link to the one you consider the best?

    2. Chris Worden says:

      We in the Democrat camp thought we had the Republican Party on the run. It was even allegedly searching for a coherent identity. But have no fear, Elephant lovers! One thing R’s do better than D’s ever will is craft sound bites and visuals that instill fear (though Democrats do have some quality moments on social security). This is a classic example.

      You see, Republicans strategists know (s)he who tells the shorter tale wins. On healthcare, Democrats will say how much more the insured pay in indirect premiums because the uninsured use emergency room medicine instead of a cheaper primary care physicians, or how big pharma overcharges to cover the cost of run-amok ad campaigns for erection pills, or how private insurance costs twice what it should because we have to cover both record profits and administration costs that dwarf Medicaid and Medicare. Yes, you heard me right. As a percent of total costs, our government runs a massively more efficient healthcare program than the private insurance system. But that’s all blah, blah, blah when compared to…THIS…

      THUNK! (heavy-metal style echo effect after bill is dropped on table)

      That's deadly effective. How can you NOT think massive government takeover when there's that much paper on the table?!? And how can a Democratic legislator who hasn't even READ the bill serve you or know about the super-secret provisions to turn us all into slave laborers? (Oh, I know! Slave labor is not in there, but almost nobody in America has read the bill either, so whatever evils Limbaugh says it contains is what many Republicans will believe).

      Sorry, but this stunt is just dumb-down hucksterism. Engage me on the specifics about what you lose choice-wise under the “government plan,” Republicans, but don't leave it at, "Gaaaaallleeee, Goober! That shoooore is big!"

      This is the worst kind of hypocritical "gotcha" politics, and I cringe when my own party does it.

      The President has to sign every bill that passes. Is Hoosier Access going to tell me it REALLY thinks George W. Bush read every bill? I'd bet all the money I have that he didn't even read every bill ABSTRACT that was prepared for him.

      You see, all the insurance companies want is "the visual" of "(s)he supports something he hasn't even read!" to kill this bill for reasons unrelated to its merits (or demerits). Republicans aren't trying to engage you in a philosophical debate on whether those who legislate and sign our laws should have to personally read every one of them because, if this were the standard, we wouldn't have enough Congressmen to get a quorum.

      I hope you keep this in mind before you dumb yourself down and actually capture it on video.

      Also, if you’re a member of Congress who is asked if you’ve read the whole bill, your reply should be, “Have you? No?!? Then shut the (expletive) up until you know what you’re talking about and quit taking talking points from a Republican leadership that’s in the pocket of the insurance industry, would you please!”
