Town hall meeting in Miami-Dade County

Received this in my inbox last night. Can anybody confirm?

Bill Nelson will have a town hall meeting on Thursday, August 13th at 4:00 pm at his Cora Gables office. The address is:

2925 Salzedo St

Coral Gables, Fl 33134

Telephone (305) 536-5999

The real mob (ACORN, SEIU) will be there. WE MUST SHOW UP IN NUMBERS..! Even if we do not get a chance to go inside where Senator Nelson will hold the town hall, we must show our numbers and show the local media (which will be in attendance looking for bad behavior…from conservatives) that ObamaCare is not supported and must not become the law of the land under any guise or circumstance. I call upon all concern individuals to flood the office and surrounding areas with your posters (please be respectful).

Until Thursday, let’s call Senator Nelson’s office and let him know how his constituents actually feel. Ring the phone off the hook with intelligent, respectful objections to ObamaCare.

If you do make it into the Town hall, here are some suggestions you may consider asking:

* Can you promise our tax dollars will not fund abortions?
* Can you promise I will not lose my current health plan and doctor?
* Can you promise Senators and Congressmen, as well as their families, will enroll in the same public plan we will have?
* Can you promise Obama’s healthcare will not lead to higher deficits?
* Can you promise government bureaucrats will not ration care, especially seniors and those seriously ill?

Let us show the local and national media, Senator Nelson, and Speaker Pelosi, and all who doubt our authenticity and sincerity that:

We Are The Grassroots!

  1. I’d change “Can you promise Senators and Congressmen, as well as their families, will enroll in the same public plan we will have?” to “Can you promise Senators and Congressmen, as well as their families, will GET ALL THEIR HEALTH CARE from the same public plan we will have?” Enrolling per se could be merely a formality.

  2. Also, if the government can’t do a decent job of running the postal service, which is NOT a life-or-death affair, why should anybody trust it with something as critical as health care? And NO, promises don’t mean shit. Show me the government’s DOCUMENTED track record that PROVES it can be trusted to manage health care. No such proof available? Didn’t think so.

  3. I’ve been looking all around for confirmation of this meeting, including contacting the Senator himself. With patience and diligence, I was able to find an event posting on facebook, but it is for a rally organized by supporters of socialized medicine [Moveon.org] at the Senator’s Coral Gables office Thursday, August 13th at 4 p.m. I will paste the information from facebook below. I have been spreading the word among my friends in hopes of rallying the opposition to this Obamination to show up and make their stand, as well. I hope this information is helpful to you.

    Our July 9th and 23rd events at Senator Nelson’s Coral Gables Office were great successes. Senator Nelson is on the Finance Committee that is crafting a bill. Now that Senator Nelson is back in Florida for the August recess, we must turn up the heat for national heathcare reform including a real public option that will keep the insurance companies honest at this critical time.

    We urge Senator Bill Nelson to support health care reform with a real public health insurance option—the core part of reform we need to bring down costs for families and small businesses in Florida. It’s important that Senator Bill Nelson be an advocate for a real public option – one that is ready Right away, available to Everyone, Accountable to the public and Large enough to lower costs.

    We want a face-to-face meeting in the critical month of August with Senator Bill Nelson at his office in Coral Gables that we pay for with our taxes.

  4. An Obama statement has been played and I don’t know the context or what Obama was trying to say. Does anyone here know?

    Obama said that UPS and Federal Express are doing fine; it’s the post office that is having all sorts of problems.

    Duh! What could have possibly possessed him to say that?

  5. Well, thanks, Anon, for showing up out of the blue (first time, is it?) to call me stupid. Unfortunately, your “proof” hardly answers my grave concerns over what’s on the table now, which is a rather different animal than Medicare/Medicaid. I’m tolerably familiar with how the government works, and I’m not impressed. Actually, I think it’s a wonder things are not worse than they are (though no doubt that could change). But I don’t really blame you; maybe you’ve been influenced by the likes of Arlen Specter, who basically told his constituents they should be grateful he would condescend to talking to them about the proposed health care package he’s pushing for his new bosses (officially new, that is). Have a nice day.
