Who’s For S-CHIP? Everyone, Unfortunately.

BY Peter Suderman

Politicians and pundits are busy folks: They’ve got fundraisers, media appearances, speeches, cocktail parties, more fundraisers — it’s a lifestyle that doesn’t leave much room for actual policy research. Hence, the invention of talking points, collections of easy to remember points of argument passed around to Congressmen and their staff, as well as friendly third parties. I never saw the Democrats’ talking points on their planned expansion of S-CHIP, the program designed to fund health insurance for children in low-income families, but I imagine the list looked something like this:

Key Vote to Sustain President Bush's Veto of SCHIP

On behalf of nearly 850,000 FreedomWorks members nationwide, I write to urge you to sustain the President’s veto of the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP).  The President was right to veto this scheme that would expand government healthcare coverage to include groups of people up to 300% above the poverty line and never intended to be covered by this plan.

Key Vote 'NO' on the big government SCHIP bill

On behalf of nearly 850,000 FreedomWorks members nationwide, I write to urge you to VOTE NO on the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) reauthorization bill up for a vote Tuesday. The bill exceeds the president’s already generous request by $30 billion dollars, and he is right to threaten a veto.

On behalf of nearly 850,000 FreedomWorks members nationwide, I write to urge you to VOTE NO on H.R. 3162, the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) reauthorization bill being offered in the House. Funded by a $0.45 increase in the federal cigarette excise tax and a nearly 200% raise in taxes on cigars, the SCHIP reauthorization proposal calls for up to $50 billion in new funds for the program, dwarfing the President’s current request of $5 billion over 5 years.

FreedomWorks Attends Health Care Reform Press Conference

WASHINGTON, D.C. On Tuesday, July 17, FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe joined Rep. Mike Pence, representatives from the American for Tax Reform, the National Taxpayers Union, and other free market groups to organize and launch the effort to stop socialized health care. Kibbe stated that the federal government is already the largest buyer and seller of health care in the United States. This, he said, is why the solution is less government in a free market approach to health care, not total government ownership and control.

Wisconsin Senate Democrats Want New Taxes on Individuals and Businesses

This week, Wisconsin Senate Democrats are planning to push a budget plan that would raise taxes significantly for both citizens and businesses. Currently Wisconsin has the eighth heaviest tax burden. If the Democrat tax scheme is realized, Wisconsin would become the highest taxed state in the nation. FreedomWorks, a grassroots organization based in Washington, DC with 11,000 members in Wisconsin, urges Wisconsinites to fight the new tax plan.

The Real Skinny on Socialized Medicine

BY Matt Kibbe

“I'm the thinnest f@#king guy in town!" --Michael Moore (Rolling Stone 9/17/04) In his new film Sicko, Michael Moore makes it clear that he is a big fan of government-run health care. He may in fact be one of the biggest fans of socialized medicine in America, given his well-documented penchant for donuts and double Quarter-Pounders with cheese.
