The best place to start is by emailing your friends, telling them that you’ve started a petition and why it’s important to you. Here’s an email you can send to your friends right now: Hello! I’ve started the petition “Barack Obama, Vanessa Guerra, Gary Peters: hands off no fault insurance.” and need your help to get it off the ground. Will you take 30 seconds to sign it right now? Here’s the link: http://www.change.org/p/barack-obama-vanessa-guerra-gary-peters-hands-off-no-fault-insurance Here’s why it’s important: senate bill SB248 and SB249 will destroy the lives of the physically disabled, by bastardizing our health care. I appeal this purposed change because it’s an enemy of my life, i along with many other physically disabled people need if nothing else excellent healthcare. our lives are literally at risk if this awful bill passes. What if it were you or your children in our position, what would you do? How would you deal with this obvious problem, and threat to your very exsistance? Lawrence Barnet, Jr. 1409 Lamont Street Saginaw, Michigan 48601 June 17, 2015 Dear XX, My name is Lawrence Barnett, Jr. and I am writing as a concerned citizen about SB248. I know first hand the effect that SB248 will have on the physically disabled. At the age of X years old, I was hit by a car in front of my mothers job. The accident left me on a ventilator and paralyzed. Despite what may seem like insurmountable obstacles, I attended and gradated high school. After high school I enrolled in collage and started taking courses. My physical limitations hold no restriction on my life. I have been and continue to be a contributor to my community and family, which is why I feel, compelled to write to you regarding SB248. SB248’s impact on the disabled is egregious. The impact of this bill on Michigan’s disabled has numerous impacts: 1) the limitation of wages for in home heath care workers is limited to $15 per hour. No matter their education or the quality of care they provide. As America makes the turn for higher living wages for all, this limitation has even further impact on family members that stay home to care for their disabled loved ones. It’s not a living wage! 2) The limitation imposed by insurance companies limiting hospitals and rehabilitation centers charge no more than 150% of the Medicare rate. This may cause some healthcare options to change as providers start to use cheaper supplies and less expensive healthcare methods. It is my understanding that many healthcare professionals are concerned about the implications of this change as well. Some of the offices and members may go out of business. As a result, it could cause supplies and health care professionals in my area to go out of business thus being inaccessible to me and others that may be in need of their services 3) More importantly is the discontinuation of tuition assistance for the disabled. This benefit serves as a critical benefit one that I’ve taken advantage of and one that is critical all members of society. Being disabled does not take away ones desire to learn and contribute and education helps to foster that growth. I write and appeal your action not only as a concerned citizen but also as someone that this legislation directly impacts. As America makes strides, it should not be on the backs of the disabled.
