To save the citizens of Nebraska from costly taxes and regulation, Governor Heineman 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 Mike Flood to join with Governor Heineman in rejecting the
establishment of an exchange.
Demand an answer from Speaker Flood and
ask where he stands on Obamacare. Ask if they will stand with the
governor to stop the Obamacare exchange in Nebraska.
Governor Heineman 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.

thank Governor Heineman for his bold stand:

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 Nebraska, I encourage you to stand by Governor Heineman 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 Nebraska. We don't need the federal government interfering with our health care decisions. Nebraska businesses that don't offer health insurance will be fined, and some will 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 Nebraska residents, then for their children and grandchildren.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
