David Scott Should Vote No On The Health Care Bill [UPDATE]

[UPDATE]: Call Rep. David Scott at (202) 225-2939, (770) 210-5073 or (770) 432-5405; and tell him to vote "NO" on the Slaughter Solution and the underlying health care bill.

As a resident of Georgia's thirteenth congressional district, I figured that it is past time for me to let my U.S. Representative know how I want him to vote on the health care bill.

Let me start by saying that this whole process stinks to the high heavens.

The Cornhusker Kickback, the Louisiana Purchase, the Gator Aid and now the Slaughter Solution suggests that the Democratic Party is so desperate for a so-called political victory that they are willing to pass any health care bill by hook and by crook.

That is no way to legislate. It is what I'd call legislating for politics rather than legislating for the people.

So I'm asking my Congressman to join his Democratic congressional colleagues Jim Marshall and John Barrow in voting no on the health care bill.

Congressman Scott, vote no on the health care bill and start over.

To quote John Barrow, "I am strongly in favor of reforming the health care system, but I don’t think this bill is going to do it, and therefore I can’t support it."

"We can do better and I’m ready to start."
