To save the citizens of Alabama from costly taxes and regulation, Governor Bentley has refused to set up a new health insurance exchange mandated by
Obamacare. He will face political pressure to change his mind, and the governor
will need all the support he can get.
Without the exchange, federal mandates won't work and the feds cannot
distribute the necessary insurance subsidies in exchange-less states. Obamacare
falls apart. Congress will then be forced to revisit the law.
The only hope of preventing the largest expansion of government in recent
history is for Speaker of the House Mike Hubbard and Senate President Pro
Tempore Del Marsh to join with Governor Bentley in rejecting the
establishment of an exchange.
Demand an answer from Speaker Hubbard and Senate President Marsh and
ask where they stand on Obamacare. Ask if they will stand with the
governor to stop the Obamacare exchange in Alabama.
Governor Bentley just has to hold firm until December 14th, 2012, the
deadline for establishing a state exchange. The election may be over but
Obamacare can still be stopped.
Send the form below or feel free to contact the Speaker of
the House or Senate President Pro Tempore by phone to voice your concern, or to
thank Governor Bentley for his bold stand:
Governor Robert Bentley - 334-242-7100
Speaker Mike Hubbard - 334-826-9946
Senate President Pro Tempore Del Marsh - 334-242-7877
Say No to the Obamacare Exchange!
Dear [Decision Maker],
Every state's governor has until December 14th, 2012 to make a decision on whether they will work to establish the health insurance exchange to comply with Obamacare. As a citizen of Alabama, I encourage you to stand by Governor Bentley in saying no to this mandate.. If enough states opt out of the health care exchange that is the heart of ObamaCare, Congress will have no choice but to reexamine the law.As a public official, you should stand by the people of Alabama. We don't need the federal government interfering with our health care decisions. Alabama businesses that don't offer health insurance will be fined and likely leave the state. To run the exchange, taxpayers will pay millions of dollars so insurance companies can rake in easy profits.Obamacare is the largest expansion of government in recent history and you have the power to stop it. If not for Alabama residents, then for their children and grandchildren.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
