By the Numbers: Health care reform in MI-08

From the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, a breakdown of why Mike Rogers needs to stop obstructing health care reform:
America’s Affordable Health Choices Act would provide significant benefits in the 8th Congressional District of Michigan: up to 15,100 small businesses could receive tax credits to provide coverage to their employees; 7,600 seniors would avoid the donut hole in Medicare Part D; 1,700 families could escape bankruptcy each year due to unaffordable health care costs; health care providers would receive payment for $53 million in uncompensated care each year; and 49,000 uninsured individuals would gain access to high-quality, affordable health insurance. Congressman Mike Rogers represents the district.
(Keep in mind that Mr. Rogers sits on the House Energy and Commerce Committee. Whether he actually represents the district is a matter of some debate...)

The Committee offers similar analysis for every House member's district.

From polls I heard about yesterday, it would seem that the lies being told by Rogers and the like about health care reform are actually being heard. (The reform is a cover to kill off seniors! ROFLMAO!) I think we all need to contact our senators & reps to ensure they know we believe in this reform.
Thanks so much for this site!

I have been focusing on Job Creations for the last two years until now ! !

The Expression;

It doesn't Count until it hits close to home... Is TRUE Well, HEALTH CARE REFORM Counts to myself and my Wife NOW ! ! IT JUST HIT HOME ! ! !

I don't know how Mr. Obama's Health Care Reform would work in Our Situation but I can tell you this, OUR CURRENT HEALTH SYSTEM IS NOT WORKING ! ! ! for us at this moment in OUR LIVES ! ! !

Last Wednesday my wife, my sole mate of 20 years that has been working for the last 25 years at the same place where they had to cut her medical plan due to the Economy was told after a ultra sound scan was done THAT THEY FOUND A MASS ON HER LIVER ! ! ! and they will have to do more tests on her to see how serious it is ! ! In other words it is Possible it Could be LIVER CANCER ! ! !

BUT here is the part that NEEDS TO BE CHANGED NOW....WE CAN'T RUN ANY MORE TESTS ON YOU UNTIL WE CHECK WITH YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY TO SEE IF THEY ARE GOING TO PAY FOR THE TESTS ! ! , it has been 5 days and no word now 5 days may not be that long to you and who knows how many more days will pass until we hear something, but I can re-assure all of you who are reading this message..THE LAST 5 DAYS THAT HAVE PAST ARE THE LONGEST 5 DAYS OF OUR LIVES IN THE PAST 20 YEARS THAT WE HAVE BEEN TOGETHER ! !

NOW DON'T TELL ME WE DON' T NEED HEALTH REFORM ! ! !

What the nurse should have said was this; Being that your case is a case that may be life threatening we will schedule more tests for you IMMEDIATELY ! !

Thank You, Respectfully, Michael V. Caldwell
