Legislative Action Alert:
Repeal Government Rationing Board under the Obama Health Care Law

IMPORTANT! Please urge your representative to vote to support H.R. 452 to repeal the Independent Payment Advisory Board in the Obama Health Care Law and to speak out in debate about its rationing! Use your own words to explain:

You don’t want bureaucrats in Washington (the Department of Health and Human Services, based on recommendations by the Independent Payment Advisory Board) to limit what treatment your doctor or hospital can give you through so-called “quality and efficiency measures.”

– Because mail to D.C. House offices faces long delays due to security screening requirements, postal mail, to be effective, is best sent to the LOCAL address instead of the Washington office, which you may find in your local phone book or by going to http://[insert representative’s last name].house.gov.

– You can send an e-mail by going to www.nrlc.org, clicking on the Legislative Action Center, clicking on “Issues and Legislation,” then clicking on H.R. 452 “Repeal Independent Payment Advisory Board,” and entering your zip code in the “Take Action Now” box; and/or

– You can call your representative’s state office (see local phone book) or go through the Capitol Switchboard: 202-225-3121.
