For Immediate Release
Health Care Vote Will Start a New Revolution for Freedom
(St. Paul/Minneapolis) – In response to the U.S. House vote to pass the U.S. Senate health insurance reform bill, Twila Brase, RN, PHN, president of Citizens’ Council on Health Care, releases the following statement:
“Today marks the first day of a new revolution for freedom in America. This is historic day, not because of the bill that the U.S. House passed, but because of what will arise out of the American people as a result of passing this unconstitutional bill.
“Today, the U.S. House has voted for a federal government takeover of health care. They have voted to socialize medicine. They have voted to put the federal government in charge of medical decisions and patient care. They have voted to empower government to deny medical care, penalize doctors, raise taxes, enforce penalties, jail citizens, expand deficits, and establish intrusiveness bureaucracies.
“President Obama, Speaker Pelosi, and Senator Reid hope the public will go away in defeat. No such thing will occur. This is not the end of the battle over health care. This is just the end of the beginning. The American people will not stand by while President Obama tries to destroy America and its foundation of freedom.”
Twila Brase, president
