I, <your name> , a member of the FWB Tea Party and registered voter, am very concerned with the pending health care legislation from the US 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. I am concerned about the size of government at all levels.
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. The individual mandate in the Senate version would require citizens to purchase insurance in order to be a legal citizen. We believe these to be in violation of both the U.S. Constitution and the Florida Constitution.
I ask that you, as the Constitutional officer of the State of Florida, 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 U.S. Constitution, and certain parts of the Florida Constitution, and want to see leadership from you on this matter. 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.
