Repeal RomneyCare: Massachusetts Needs Your Help!

If you’re in a help­ing mood, first read Cyn­thia Yockey’s plea for help. Between the IRS, her thy­roid prob­lems, and aid­ing her father, she’s strug­gling. To quote Peter Da TechGuy: “Please do what you can.”

If you still have some energy left over, then please pro­mote, blog about, donate to, or, if you are a reg­is­tered MA voter, sign the peti­tion for the repeal of Mass­a­chu­setts’ health care indi­vid­ual man­date. From the email sent out today:

MAIM is work­ing for the Bal­lot Ques­tion which will repeal the indi­vid­ual man­date in Rom­n­ey­care. We know it will have national impli­ca­tions. www​.repeal​-rom​n​ey​care​.com
Will you stand with me?

I need you to do two things.

Ask for a peti­tion to sign to repeal the Indi­vid­ual Man­date in Mass­a­chu­setts. www​.repeal​-rom​n​ey​care​.com
And.…
Send in a con­tri­bu­tion of what­ever amount you can afford. www​.repeal​-rom​n​ey​care​.com
We col­lected almost 5,000 sig­na­tures in the first week from cit­i­zens just like you, who want to repeal the indi­vid­ual man­date in Mass­a­chu­setts. But, we have to col­lect almost 70,000 sig­na­tures by the end of Novem­ber to get our peti­tion on the bal­lot so the vot­ers of Mass­a­chu­setts can decide once and for all if they want the state to make health care deci­sions for them.
And that costs money.
To col­lect the sig­na­tures we need to pay for print­ing mate­ri­als, postage, gas, the web site and other mis­cel­la­neous expenses. To reach our goal, it won’t be cheap, but it is worth the expense. There is sim­ply too much at stake.
This is some­thing that con­ser­v­a­tives around the nation who oppose Oba­maCare might want to help out on. Donate. Pro­mote on your blogs — you have read­ers in Mass­a­chu­setts, right?
Repeal­ing the indi­vid­ual man­date por­tion of Mass­a­chu­setts’ state-​run health care sys­tem enables peo­ple to not have to pay into a sys­tem which will invari­ably ration care — care to both the elderly and the young. It will allow young peo­ple start­ing out, with few job prospects, heavy stu­dent loans, and a lousy econ­omy, to buy the health care that is most afford­able for them, not the health care that will drain their sav­ings and pre­vent them from mov­ing for­ward in their lives. (Does a 25-​year-​old really need IVF ther­apy? Three “free” doctor’s vis­its a year?)
Just as Mass­a­chu­setts sent a mes­sage to Wash­ing­ton in Jan­u­ary of 2010 by elect­ing Scott Brown, we can do it again in 2012 by putting the indi­vid­ual man­date on the bal­lot and vot­ing on it. If we can man­age to get the blue­print for Oba­maCare up for a vote before the peo­ple, we can rein­force the mes­sage that government-​mandated insur­ance is unacceptable.

If you still have some energy left over, then please promote, blog about, donate to, or, if you are a registered MA voter, sign the petition for the repeal of Massachusetts’ health care individual mandate.  From the email sent out today:

MAIM is working for the Ballot Question which will repeal the individual mandate in Romneycare.  We know it will have national implications.  www.repeal-romneycare.com
Will you stand with me?

I need you to do two things.

 Ask for a petition to sign to repeal the Individual Mandate in Massachusetts. www.repeal-romneycare.com
 And….
 Send in a contribution of whatever amount you can afford.  www.repeal-romneycare.com
We collected almost 5,000 signatures in the first week from citizens just like you, who want to repeal the individual mandate in Massachusetts.  But, we have to collect almost 70,000 signatures by the end of November to get our petition on the ballot so the voters of Massachusetts can decide once and for all if they want the state to make health care decisions for them.
 And that costs money.
To collect the signatures we need to pay for printing materials, postage, gas, the web site and other miscellaneous expenses.  To reach our goal, it won’t be cheap, but it is worth the expense.  There is simply too much at stake.
This is something that conservatives around the nation who oppose ObamaCare might want to help out on.  Donate. Promote on your blogs – you have readers in Massachusetts, right?
Repealing the individual mandate portion of Massachusetts’ state-run health care system enables people to not have to pay into a system which will invariably ration care – care to both the elderly and the young.  It will allow young people starting out, with few job prospects, heavy student loans, and a lousy economy, to buy the health care that is most affordable for them, not the health care that will drain their savings and prevent them from moving forward in their lives.  (Does a 25-year-old really need IVF therapy?  Three “free” doctor’s visits a year?)
Just as Massachusetts sent a message to Washington in January of 2010 by electing Scott Brown, we can do it again in 2012 by putting the individual mandate on the ballot and voting on it.  If we can manage to get the blueprint for ObamaCare up for a vote before the people, we can reinforce the message that government-mandated insurance is unacceptable.
