Tell Congress to oppose H.R. 5 and put patients first.

Yesterday, the House Energy and Commerce Committee favorably reported H.R. 5, the Help Efficient Accessible, Low Cost, Timely Health Care(HEALTH) Act of 2011 out of committee. This bill has already been favorably reported out of the House Judiciary Committee. The next step is the House floor.

Take Action! Tell Congress to oppose H.R. 5.

This radical and vicious bill would take away the legal rights of injured people, remove any incentives to improve patient safety, and leave everyone at risk for more injures from negligent care. H.R. 5 would impose draconian caps on damages, not just when injured by medical negligence, but also for defective drugs, or medical devices, or abuse suffered in nursing homes.  The bill also preempts state law that is more favorable to patients while keeping in place state law that favors medical providers.

Take Action! Your rights are at stake!

When hospitals, nursing homes, and drug companies cannot be held fully accountable, there is no incentive to reduce the 98,000 medical errors that kill patients every year. As a result, even more patients may suffer injury, resulting in the need for additional medical care.  The focus of this bill should be on improving patient safety, not limiting the rights of those who have been injured. 
Take Action NOW! Send a message to Congress telling them to put patients first and oppose H.R. 5!

I understand and now you do, too!

A lot of people ask the question, why do they hate us so? This trailer from a new movie explains it in simple terms, it is a sociologist  outlining the thinking that has emerge around the world in their views of the Empire. As with every Empire that has ever existed, conquered people will never be your loyal subjects. The United States Imperialism has taken it into every Nation on earth and the countries that have what it wants are the ones we invade, either clandestinely or by making up false flag operations in order to have an excuse to invade for the bottom line of corporate greed.
