Wayne Shepherd:
I looked at the title of today’s program, and got a little nervous.

Dave Zanotti:
Wayne, this whole subject is more than a little creepy. While many people were sleeping last night, a small group in Washington D.C. was mapping out a plan for who will get care and who will be denied; for who will get better and who will be left on the side of the road.

They were meeting and planning to radically retool your healthcare. Their goal is to eliminate private health insurance in America and place total control over healthcare expenditures into the hands of a new federal bureaucracy. Which means, there will always be somebody in Washington D.C. deciding what’s best for you. In over thirty years of public policy work, this is the most troubling issue I have personally ever encountered.

It is the most radical departure from the spirit and letter of the US Constitution. It is the most dangerous role for government to seize and - it is the biggest political con I have ever seen.

As we enter this debate, Wayne, I want to remind people that I am not a Republican or a Democrat, so this is not a partisan message. The Roundtable objective is the best health care policy for all.

So what do we do?

Now is the time to begin calling and emailing your Representative and two US Senators.

What do we tell them?

Pretty simple-tell them stop the stampede to change healthcare. Tell them you want no vote on a single healthcare measure until every American has the opportunity to read the fine print and decide.
