The following is a post from RTP board member Susan Lascolette.
A patriot’s work is never done! Just because the gigantic overhaul of our health care system has been signed into law, many continue to fight against it.
Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) has introduced a bill in the US House – HR 4309 – to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. When this bill was voted on in the House, all five Virginia Republican Congressmen voted against it.
Now, Representative Bachmann has 53 co-sponsors for her bill and the only Virginia Republican Congressman who has joined as a co-sponsor is Bob Goodlatte (R-6th). Thank you, Bob!
If Rob Wittman (R-1st), Randy Forbes (R-4th), Eric Cantor (R-7th), and Frank Wolf (R-10th) were firm in their oppostion to the Health Care Bill, what on earth could be stopping them for becoming co-sponsors of Bachmann’s HR 4309 legislation?
We urge you to contact each of thse congressmen. Please thank Representative Goodlatte. And ask Representatives Wittman, Forbes, Cantor and Wolf what is stopping them from continuing the fight against a bill that the citizens of the Commonwealth dispise so much that they have filed suit against it in the Federal Courts.
