Dr. Milton R. Wolf: Washington Times Piece, Recall Dennis Moore Updated: Shocking D.C. Memo Proves that Reps Did Not Read the Bill


by the Left Coast Rebel

Dr. Milton R. Wolf has been beyond gracious to the Left Coast Rebel readership and because I also believe in what he is doing, I am keeping track of his ongoing work. Today Dr. Wolf has a great op-ed in the Washington Times, here’s an excerpt (link here):

“I do solemnly swear that I will … faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.” Like millions of other Americans, I watched our elected leaders with growing frustration as they willfully ignored “We the People” and brazenly rammed through their government takeover of the world’s finest health care system. Now, I confess that I may take this a little too personally. After all, I’m not only a practicing physician, but I am President Obama’s cousin.

Before the vote, I traveled to Washington in hopes of meeting with my representative, Dennis Moore, Kansas Democrat, to ask him questions about the bill. Sadly, he refused to meet with me……

Recently, Dennis Moore was finally cornered and made the stunning – though not surprising – confession that he had not read the health care bill before voting for it. On March 24, Mr. Moore was asked one of my own questions by Ellen Schenk of News Radio 980 KMBZ if the scheme to financially penalize family doctors for referring patients to specialists was still in the bill.
Dr. Milton Wolf is leading the charge to recall his Congress-critter, Rep. Dennis Moore (D-KS). Due to the fact that Rep. Dennis Moore did not even read the health care bill and admitted so, he has a great shot at recalling this guy.

Also, a New York Times article today belatedly, (as in after passage of Obamacare), points out that this theme echoes through Congress. A memo released by the Congressional Research Service points out that the law may have ‘unintended’ consequences on senators, representatives and their staff. It seems that pretty much no one in Congress read the health care bill and may be affected in adverse ways that even they didn’t realize. Hah! NYT via Memeorandum:
For example, it says, the law may “remove members of Congress and Congressional staff” from their current coverage, in the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, before any alternatives are available.

The confusion raises the inevitable question: If they did not know exactly what they were doing to themselves, did lawmakers who wrote and passed the bill fully grasp the details of how it would influence the lives of other Americans?

The law promises that people can keep coverage they like, largely unchanged. For members of Congress and their aides, the federal employees health program offers much to like. But, the report says, the men and women who wrote the law may find that the guarantee of stability does not apply to them.

I can’t think of a more clarion example to substantiate the cause of repeal than this admission from the New York Times. Perhaps this is one of the only positive silver-lining developments after passage, no? I’m laughing at Congress and weeping for my nation and the collective loss of liberty.

In closing, the Recall Dennis Moore petition and effort is just the beginning of a bigger and greater effort – to Fire the 219 that voted for the health care takeover.
