Public Option Amendment

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama

Petition Statement

Whereas opposition to the provisions and rulings of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Public Law 111-148) has moved to allow exclusions from mandated health care coverages for any employer, sponsor, issuer on grounds of religious belief or moral conviction, a public health care option is herewith made available which will cover all mandated health care and meet all of the provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Public Law 111-148).

Because the United States Council Of Bishops and their affiliates and their operatives in congress have falsely declared that PPACA constitutes a war against religion and falsely declared that an HHS ruling forces religion to violate its beliefs and because Senator Roy Blunt's Amendment, S.AMEND 1520 to S.1813 seeks exclusions from the provisions and rulings under PPACA on grounds of religious belief or moral conviction, a public option that meets all of the provisions and rulings under PPACA becomes essential to meet the full array of health care needs of persons excluded from such coverage by the Catholic exclusions and the Blunt exclusions.

This reinstated Public Healthcare Option will be introduced in its original form or an improved and strengthened form to be determined by the sponsor of the amendment.
There are currently 116 signatures. NEW goal - We need 200 signatures!

Petition Background

In response to the Blunt Amendment, S.AMEND 1520 to S.1813, I petition any Senator or Representative to introduce an amendment to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Public Law 111-148) which will reinstate the Public Option.
