Protest Government controlled health care

There is a rally that is being held in Helena tomorrow at Woman's Park on Fuller Ave at 5:30.
It appears to fit very well with our mission with the tea parties therefore I'm suggesting that if you agree with this group's effort that you plan to attend and support them just as these people might support our tea party events.

Message from "Patients United Now" included here.

Dear Friend,

Canadian Shona Holmes had a brain tumor and was told by her government
health care agency to wait 6 months for treatment. At home she had no
choice. The government had spoken. So Shona mortgaged her home and came
to the United States for immediate treatment -- that saved her life.
It's powerful...and frightening.

When you hear the politicians in Washington talk about the idea of
"fixing" our health care, do you know what it could mean for
you and your family?

*Government between you and your doctor---with government regulations
"guiding" your assigned doctor's decisions.

*Medical treatments denied if you, or a loved one, are deemed too old
or chronically ill.

*Long waits for life-saving treatments and even longer lines for basic
medical procedures.

We at Americans for Prosperity Foundation have launched a project
called Patients United Now ( to educate patients
like you and your parents and your children and other loved ones
exactly on what's at stake in this health care policy debate.

Here are three key action items you can take to stop a Washington
takeover of health care.

Sign up on our website and join Patients United Now.

Spread the message---forward the TV ad to a friend.

Share your personal health care story online.

Our Patients United Now team is traveling the nation telling the truth
about what a government takeover of health care will mean for all of
us. Come out and be heard -- bring your friends and family! Find an
event near you.

You may see our new AFP Foundation Communications Director, Amy
Menefee, on the road or on the news as our Patients United Now
initiative continues to gain momentum.

My wife, Julie, and I have four children. We cannot imagine the
government deciding which doctors they can see and the treatments for
which they are "eligible."

Julie's mother faces Alzheimer's. We cannot imagine certain medical
treatments being denied by the government because of her age, but
that's exactly what bureaucrats could do in Washington.

As part of Americans for Prosperity Foundation, you've worked to defend
our economic freedoms. Today, I'm asking you to stand up and defend
your own health care.

bureaucrats are discussing are at Please go

your family and your doctor.
