Healthcare Exchanges, What are we getting ourselves into?

So when you hear "Health Care Exchanges", what comes to mind? A place where you exchange your health care for something else? Perhaps not quite, but given the move toward socialized medicine, government command and control over everything, that it makes, it might not be too far from the truth. If this goes forward unabated, by 2014, all 50 states, will operate new health care exchanges, as required by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. In the land of unintended consequences, where government run programs never quite end up doing what they planned, is a permanent, no way back package the plan to go with? Once the government run health care begins, there will be no easy way to return to a private system. There are issues with our current insurance we system, but Obamacare isn't the answer.

So on Thursday May 12 there was a rally where sereral people explained further, why this is a bad idea. Here is the contact information about the rally and how to go sign the petition to stop going beyond the point of no return. There are better ways to improve on the best medical health care system in the world, without abandoning it completely!

"Stop the Obamacare Exchange" RALLY -- May 12
Governor Dayton wants to install the Obamacare Health Insurance Exchange — Obama's state-by-state command and control infrastructure to take over health care in Minnesota.
We have not yet secured Republican leadership commitment to stop it. Some GOP leaders have even tried to make it state law (HF497 -- GOP author; GOP/DFL co-authors).
Speakers include Rep. Doug Wardlow (R-Eagan) and Sen. Gretchen Hoffman (R-Vergas), the two dynamic authors of bills to prohibit the Obamacare Exchange in Minnesota (SF1343 and HF1552), Rep. Mary Franson (R-Alexandria) and Sen. Sean Nienow (R-Cambridge), two of the strong co-authors of the legislation, Sue Jeffers (KTLK 100.3 FM) and, Twila Brase.
In these last critical days, we must do everything we can to stop the Obamacare takeover of health care in Minnesota. Sign the Citizens' Council for Health Freedom petition and ask others to sign it.
Twila Brase RN, PHN, President
Citizens' Council for Health Freedom
1954 University Ave. W, Ste. 8
St. Paul, MN 55104
