I, <your name>, a member of the FWB Tea Party and registered voter, am very concerned with the pending health care legislation from the U.S. Congress. It appears this will put a great strain on the state’s Medicare resources, and force Floridians into a health insurance system whether it is wanted or not.
You recently voted in favor of SunRail, and this makes us wonder how you can claim to be opposed to big government while you vote in favor of big government programs at the state level. You spoke to the Tea Party at the NWF Fairgrounds in August 2009 decrying wasteful spending in Washington DC, but you vote in favor of it at the State level. However, I saw your press release decrying this new health care bill, and I want to see action from you on this matter.
I am greatly concerned that Senator Nelson (D-FL) has apparently negotiated a separated Medicare Advantage program for 3 counties in South Florida, and has ignored the needs of all our Counties to benefit his Democratic base. Further, Sen. Nelson (D-NE) has received a benefit for Nebraska that the other 49 states will not receive. We are tired of “business as usual.”
We would ask that you request the State Attorney, Mr. McCollum, and the Governor of Florida, to research and publically report on the Constitutionality (both U.S. and Florida) of this matter.
I believe there are options available to us through the 10th amendment of the US Constitution, and certain parts of the Florida Constitution, and want to see leadership from you on this matter, and not just press releases. Please let me know how I can assist in this effort. I look forward to hearing from you quickly due to the pending passage of the final bill before Congress.
