Here’s a summary of arguments against so-called health care “reform,” specifically, the Senate Bill, HR 3590. It might be useful when contacting a member of Congress (e.g., those on the fence). The bracketed numbers refer to the reference list at the end. (To keep your e-mail short, you can omit the reference list and link to this post.)
1. The bill coddles insurance companies with the individual mandate, the employer mandate,subsidies, regulations and limits on competition. 
2. So-called “reform” is a national version of Massachusetts’ “Romney Care”, which has failed. 
4. Health care is not a right, nor is it a privilege. We have the right *to seek* health care.
5. Health care reform will increase your insurance premiums. 
6. Middle-class taxes will increase. 
7. Many people will not be able to keep their current insurance. 
8. It will not reduce the budget deficit. 
9. It’s wrong to force people to pay for other people’s health care or insurance. That’s what charity is for.
11. It’s wrong to force people to buy a product.
12. It’s wrong to make people’s current insurance policy (or any insurance policy) illegal – espcially HSA-qualified policies, which encourage prudent spending. 
14. Mandatory insurance punishes low-wage workers with high marginal tax rates, which keeps them poor. 
15. Medicaid is a fraud-ridden poverty trap that provides lousy care and increases everyone’s insurance premiums.  Don’t expand it. Why not let taxpayers *choose* which charities their tax dollars fund? 
16. Coverage is NOT care: Having insurance does not mean you get needed medical care. 
Instead, try some free-market reforms. For example, read “Yes, Mr. President: A Free Market Can Fix Health Care” at healthcare.Cato.org or “Real reform: free-markets” at PatientPowerNow.org.
