At least 14 Ontario hospitals spent scarce taxpayer dollars on lobbyists: NDP
TORONTO – The New Democrats say at least 14 hospitals have been spending scarce health-care dollars to lobby the provincial government. But they say it’s still not clear how much money is going to lobbyists because most of the hospitals aren’t obliged to disclose the value of the contracts.

Excerpt from President Obama’s July 22, 2009 Press Conference: “I understand how easy it is for this town to become consumed in the game of politics to turn every issue into running tally of whos up and whos down. Ive heard that one Republican strategist told his party that even though they may want to compromise, its better politics to go for the kill. Another Republican Senator said that defeating health reform is about breaking me. So let me be clear: This isnt about me. I have great health insurance, and so does every Member of Congress. This debate is about the letters I read when I sit in the Oval Office every day, and the stories I hear at town hall meetings. This is about the woman in Colorado who paid $700 a month to her insurance company only to find out that they wouldnt pay a dime for her cancer treatment who had to use up her retirement funds to save her own life. This is about the middle-class college graduate from Maryland whose health insurance expired when he changed jobs, and woke up from emergency surgery with $10000 in debt. This is about every family, every business, and every taxpayer who continues to shoulder the burden of a problem that Washington has failed to solve for decades. This debate is not a game for these Americans, and they cannot afford to wait for reform any longer. They are counting on us to get this done. They are looking to us for leadership. And we must not let them down. We will pass reform that lowers cost, promotes choice, and

www.house.gov CampaignForLiberty.com Healthcare continues to dominate the agenda on Capitol Hill as House leadership and the administration try to ram through their big government healthcare plan. Fortunately, they have been unsuccessful so far, as there are many horrifying provisions tucked into this massive piece of legislation. One major issue is the public funding of elective abortions. The administration has already removed many longstanding restrictions on abortion, and is unwilling to provide straight answers to questions regarding the public funding of abortion in their plan. This is deeply troubling for those of us who do not want taxpayer dollars funding abortions. Forcing pro-life taxpayers to subsidize abortion is evil and tyrannical. I have introduced the Taxpayers Freedom of Conscience Act (HR 1233) which forbids the use of any taxpayer funds for abortion, both here and overseas. The most basic function of government is to protect life. It is unconscionable that government would enable the taking of it. However this is to be expected when government oversteps its constitutional bounds instead of protecting rights. When government supercedes this very limited role, it cannot help but advance the moral agenda of whoever is in power at the time, at the expense of the rights of others. Free people should be left alone to follow their conscience and determine their own lifestyle as long as they do not interfere with other people doing the same. If morality is
