Conservative group claims 1 million signatures on repeal petition

Petition to Repeal the Healthcare Reform Bill

WHEREAS the health care bill recently passed by the United States Congress and signed into law by President Obama ignores the will of the majority of Americans who vigorously oppose government controlled national health care, and

WHEREAS this law includes an unprecedented overreach of the federal government into the lives of individuals and tramples on the Constitution, and

WHEREAS this law threatens the patient-physician relationship and the highest standards of medical care, and

WHEREAS this law mandates that citizens either purchase health insurance or pay a fine to the federal government for not doing so, and

WHEREAS this law significantly jeopardizes jobs, our economy and our children's futures by adding nearly one trillion dollars to the national deficit and substantially increasing taxes on families and businesses, and

WHEREAS in sum and total this law represents an arrogant disregard for the personal freedom of the people of the United States,

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that we the undersigned citizens of the United States of America support the repeal and replacement of this law with responsible reforms to our nation's health care system.
