Hands Off My Health Care Bus Tour in Texarkana

The information below was sent to me and is being posted here for your information:

I just wanted to make sure you all have our information about our Patients First “Hands Off Our Health Care” bus tour on Oct. 23rd & 24th and our AFP Town hall with John Stossel in Texarkana, Little Rock and Jonesboro on Oct. 29th. I hope you will forward this information to your contacts and join us at these very important events!

Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid think less personal control over your health care, added layers of Washington bureaucracy, and higher costs is health care reform. We disagree.

Whatever legislation Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Reid manage to force through Congress will affect you and your family. Shouldn’t they slow down and listen to the American people? Shouldn’t you have a right to know what’s in the bill? Americans for Prosperity thinks so. And that’s why our Hands Off My Health Care Bus Tour is rolling into you area.

On Friday, October 23rd and Saturday October 24 th, at any one of our bus stops,you’ll have an opportunity to hear from experts about what is in the most current bill, how it will affect you and what you can do to stop a Washington takeover of your health care. See the schedule of events below. You’ll be able to sign our petition, write and call your members of Congress, and even host a house party to view our latest video on health care reform.

If you can’t make it to a bus stop, please don’t miss the opportunity to be a part of our health care TOWN HALL on Thursday, October 29 th with national media correspondent, John Stossel! Patients First is bringing John Stossel and Tim Phillips to Texarkana, Little Rock, and Jonesboro to give you an update on health care reform and the opportunity to tell Congress you don’t want government taking over our health care. Register for this FREE event with John Stossel. Click here to register.

On October 23-24 or October 29th, bring a friend . Bring your signs. Sign the petition. Let’s work together to send a strong message to Congress: “Keep your hands off my health care!”

I can’t wait to see you on the road!
