Tammy Baldwin Heard From The Angry Mob!

On Saturday September 26th, Rep. Tammy Baldwin held two town hall meetings in Beloit and Lake Mills.  The estimated attendance at Beloit was about 50 people and at Lake Mills about 80 people.  Many of the Rock River Patriots attended the Lake Mills town hall, as did many other concerned citizens.

I was at the Lake Mills town hall from about 1:30 – 3:30pm with many other Patriots.  I left while the meeting was still going.  While at the town hall, out of all those who spoke, I heard only two people that were for government run health care.  Everyone else was against it.  Many spoke about the lack of transparency in this administration, voiced their disgust about Rep. Baldwin’s vote against the bill to de-fund ACORN, spoke about how bad the Cap and Trade (Tax) bill would be for Wisconsin, and spoke out against Amnesty for Illegal Immigrants.   Much of the town hall meeting and the comments were video taped.  Above are some videos of the Angry Mob!

This is what Kirsten Lombard from the Wisconsin 9/12 Project wrote about attending the Lake Mills meeting:

Tammy had a few supporters there.  But most of the folks there were much like you and me–concerned citizens who don’t like what they see happening. People respectfully held her feet to the fire, and she got called out on a few things.  It was a privilege to be there and to hear the respectful individual voices of District 2 constituents coming together in agreement that our we are not being properly represented in Washington and that we will no longer accept what is happening.

I have heard from others who attended the town hall in Beloit.  This is what Jim Sutter wrote:

I attended the Beloit , Listening Session, held by Rep. Baldwin, and wanted to share some of my observations and thoughts.   Attendance was roughly 50 people maybe slightly more.  Of those there, my estimate is about ¼ were Baldwin and health care reform supporters.   At this listening session it was apparent that the majority of attendees were in opposition of the current health care reform bill and cap and trade bills.   I know this is only one session, but Ms Baldwin regularly touts that her constituents are demanding health care reforms.   She doesn’t say the minority of her constituents demand it.

My gut feeling is that the overall position of those attending is that there is very little trust or confidence in our government representatives, the governments facts & figures or the ability to run anything efficiently.  I don’t think anyone that attended this meeting had any hope that Ms Baldwin was going to change her thoughts or votes based on what she was asked or told today.  It seems apparent that her beliefs and mind is made up and she was mainly trying to use talking points to appease or convince the people attending to accept her actions and comments.

The Healthcare Bill

Here is a link to all of the items hidden in the health care bill. If this bill passes, say goodbye to your freedoms.

Hidden Items in the Healthcare Bill

Here is what one of the elected representatives thinks about reading the bill he is going to vote on:

Paul Ryan on MSNBC Regarding Healthcare Debate

Make sure you watch this until the end…Rep. Ryan doesn’t let the liberal reporters get away with their flawed logic.

Contact Your Legislator Regarding Healthcare

The truth is that any government health care solution is UNCONSTITUTIONAL!  The Constitution mandates no such “right”.

Here is a health care solution you can copy/paste and send to your legislator:

The number of uninsured (estimated to be 45 million) is grossly overinflated.  Much of that number is illegal immigrants, people who qualify under existing gov’t programs for care, and those who can afford to get insurance, but do not because they don’t want to spend the money.

Here is the solution to health care:

  • No health benefits for illegal immigrants.
  • Institute reforms to the civil litigation system to prevent frivolous law suits against doctors for malpractice.
  • Allow for a free market system solution not another insurance system.
  • Insurance coverage should only be for catastrophic illness/injuries.
  • Utilize Medical Savings Accounts for the individual that goes with them if they change jobs.
  • The amount paid for premiums by employers/employees can go into this account, as well as a portion of a persons Social Security and Medicare withholding.
  • Make doctors offices, clinics,labs, and hospitals publish the costs for each and every procedure, etc…  Then people can shop around for their health care, and not have an insurance company tell them what they have to do.

This process will drive down costs due to competition and make the care better.  People will go to the place that offers them the best service and value.  Doctors and patients can weigh the costs vs benefits of a particular test or procedure.  The decisions are back in the hands of the patients and their doctors, not bureaucrats.
