Take Action to STOP ObamaCare in Take in Pennsylvania!
To all Pennsylvania Taxpayers and Health Care Consumers,
AFP-Pennsylvania expresses its thanks to the following Pennsylvania Legislators, who signed the Pennsylvania Health Care Freedom Pledge. Please scroll to the bottom for a list of Legislators who have signed as of May 2, 2012.
Take Action to STOP ObamaCare in Pennsylvania!
ObamaCare will make health care more expensive and less accessible, and will stifle innovation through huge new tax and regulatory burdens. And ObamaCare will ultimately put all control over health insurance and health care in the hands of Washington bureaucrats.
Unfortunately, Governor Tom Corbett has taken over $34 million in federal funds (i.e., your federal tax dollars) to set up an ObamaCare health insurance exchange in Pennsylvania. The exchange is a new bureaucracy that will soon require tens of millions of dollars annually in new surcharges, fees and/or taxes on Pennsylvania families and businesses.
Worse still, the imposition of an ObamaCare exchange here in Pennsylvania may prevent ObamaCare from being repealed. As enacted, ObamaCare is dependent upon state exchanges (such as Gov. Corbett’s exchange) for the distribution of federal subsidies. Once Pennsylvanian’s become addicted to federal subsidies, ObamaCare will be extremely difficult to repeal.
AFP-Pennsylvania is calling on Pennsylvania’s Legislators to sign the Health Care Freedom Pledge and to STOP Governor Corbett from imposing an ObamaCare exchange on Pennsylvania.
Here is the key text of the Health Care Freedom Pledge:
“I hereby pledge to OPPOSE any bill, regulation, legislation, or executive action that implements President Obama’s health care legislation, including bills that create new bureaucracies that must be funded by new surcharges, fees, or taxes of any kind.”
AFP-Pennsylvania is asking all Pennsylvania Legislators to sign the Pledge during this legislative session which ends the at the conclusion of June. Legislators who fail to sign the Pledge are leaving the door open to the imposition of an ObamaCare exchange in Pennsylvania –and harming the prospects for the repeal of ObamaCare.

Please let us know how your Legislators respond to your message by emailing AFP-Pennsylvania at infoPA@afphq.org. Under the influence of insurance-company lobbyists, many Legislators have been led to believe that Pennsylvania will somehow have more control over its insurance market if we set up an ObamaCare exchange here.
