I looked this up and it does check out as legit. However, the sources I read claim the petition will not, in all likelihood, help much. What WOULD really help, and I myself am going to do this, is to write, phone, fax or e-mail your representatives and tell them you support this bill. Don't quote me here but I think it is bill # 1849. OK, I just checked, and it is H.R. 1849. Anyway, don't worry about signing the petition, contact your representative!!!

Hmmm I have a thought maybe a bad thought I confess but I wonder...... what part of a mans anatomy would they cut off and then send him home the same day???????

Most of these decisions are made by insurance companies whos decision makers are usually male.

I am not picking on men here but sometimes people need to have it put to them in a more personal way?



Well who ever it is needs a reality check!
