Larry H's Email to Senator Bill Nelson
I gave you another "F" because of your vote against several proposed amendments to the Healthcare Bill. Even though you refuse to vote in line with your constituents wishes I thought you would at least try to help them when you could. I'd like to know why you opposed the following three proposed amendments:
- Vote 368: H R 3590: Gregg Amdt. No. 2942; To prevent Medicare from being raided for new entitlements and to use Medicare savings to save Medicare.
- Vote 360: H R 3590: Thune Amdt. No. 2901; To eliminate new entitlement programs and limit the government control over the health care of American families.
- Vote 356: H R 3590: Murkowski Amdt. No. 2836; To ensure patients receive doctor recommendations for preventive health services, including mammograms and cervical cancer screening, without interference from government or insurance company bureaucrats.
When you vote against these it sure makes one wonder what the real democratic agenda is.
I find your vote against item 3 particularily worrisome. Seems like you want to have the government come between the doctor and patient so the government can actually decide what should be recommended.
Your actions are disgraceful. I sure wish you were up for re-election in 2010.
