Petition to Congressman Stephen Lynch to Vote In Favor of Health Care Reform Bill
As Massachusetts voters, we expected you to change your mind and vote for Health Care Reform. The current bill represents an important change for Americans insuring over 30 million more uninsured people, while reducing costs, waste and the federal deficit.
Your rationale as report in the Globe (http://www.boston.com/news/politics/politicalintelligence/2010/03/lynch_...) of not voting includes disliking the procedures used and the tax on Cadillac plans that won't take affect for a decade. We believe these concerns are very minor relative to the benefits to Americans.
We believe that Ted Kennedy would have worked hard to support this legislation and that by voting against the bill you are voting against what he and Massachusetts citizens have stood for.
If you do not vote in favor of this legislation, you will no longer have my support for your Congressional seat or any other office for which you decide to run.
