The following letter was received from the office of Del. Rick Impallaria:
Health Care and Insurance Issues – July 28, 2009
Many of you have recently been expressing to me your concerns about Pres. Obama’s proposing drastic changes in our health insurance. I share your concerns, and, by what I read about it, I believe that the bill now being worked on in Washington will result in a system of nationalized health care. Other countries’ experience has proved that rationing is inevitable, with long waits for routine care, treatment, and surgery. Our elderly will be counseled to just go away and die, for, in the immortal words of Ebenezer Scrooge, “If they be like to die, they better do it, and decrease the surplus population.”
I protest these draconian approaches to health insurance and health care, and have, among other things, called AARP Maryland to voice my opposition.
If you would like to do so as well, you may call them toll-free at 1-866-542-8163. Their website is www.aarp.org/md
Harford County Farm Fair – July 30 – August 2, 2009
I will have a booth at this event, and will be joined by representatives from several grass-roots conservative groups in Harford County – the Tea Party organizers, the Fair Taxation people (who have been working to get our property taxes reduced), the Rt. 40 Republican Club (not your average political club). We will also have candidates for House of Delegates, District 35A David Tritt and Jason Galleon, and for District 34 Patrick McGrady and Glenn Glass.
The Farm Fair will be held at the Equestrian Center, 608 N. Tollgate Rd, Bel Air. Hours are July 30, 31, and Aug. 1 – 10 am to 10 pm, Aug 2, 10 am to 6 pm. Adult admission is $7.
