I just got this email from David Vitter, US Senator:
President Obama insisted that under his health care bill, "if you like your plan, you can keep your plan." But it turns out that many health insurance plans will soon be changed under the Obama health care bill. The New York Times reported in an article on the health care reform bill that "some people, especially those who work at smaller businesses, might face significant changes in the terms of their coverage."
ObamaCare requires many health insurance plans to comply with new federal government regulations . Many Louisianians get their health care from their employer, but if those health care plans do not comply with the new federal rules, they will lose their protected status and fall under new regulation. In fact, the Obama Administration's own projections estimate that most small business workers will lose their protected status and have to obtain new, costlier coverage as a result of this new federal regulation.
I remain committed to reforming health care with measures that truly make health care more affordable through clear and concise solutions without threatening our nation's prosperity and freedom. The American people won't stand for this government takeover of health care, and I will continue to fight to repeal it and reverse the damage.
REALLY? You send this e-mail out in the middle of a huge environmental, economic and social crisis? This is not helpful to anyone at this time. Rather than being devisive, we need to be working together towards solutions for the myriad problems caused by the oil leak.
