Congressman Ortiz from the Texas 27th Congressional District mailed out, at taxpayer’s expense, “Congressman Solomon P. Ortiz’s Health Care Reform Report”. This is the same congressman who refused to attend any town hall meetings in South Texas due to his fear of his constituents.
Highlights of this taxpayer funded propaganda piece includes:
“Bans the worst behaviour by insurers by ending their ability to deny coverage based on pre-existing conditions, drop coverage when people get sick and charge people more based on their gender or occuption.” (NO LONGER INSURANCE – NOW A WELFARE PLAN – SOCIALISM)
“Requires shared responsibilty among individuals, business, and government.” (SOCIALISM)
“Assures that health care is affordable by providing tax credits to low and moderate income families.”(SOCIALISM)
“Provides tax credits to small businesses to help them provide coverage to their employees.” (SOCIALISM)
Congressman Ortiz proudly states “THIS SPRING, CONGRESS AND THE PRESIDENT MADE HISTORY BY ENACTING COMPREHENSIVE HEALTH CARE REFORM THAT GUARANTEES AFFORDABLE, QUALITY COVERAGE FOR ALL AMERICANS. I WAS PROUD TO SUPPORT THIS VITAL LEGISLATION.”
This exemplifies the arrogance of incumbency funded by punishing taxation.
