SACRAMENTO – The Assembly Committee on Appropriations voted Feb. 25 along party lines to support AB 2x (Pan), which locks into state law the federal Affordable Care Act requirements. The vote was 12-5. Committee member Assemblyman Frank Bigelow, R-O’Neals, issued the following statement after opposing the bill:

“Neither the federal legislation or AB 2x will address the economics associated with health care coverage in the state of California,” Bigelow said. “Until we are certain that the Affordable Care Act will not negatively affect the people we serve, the legislation is premature.”

“The legislation before the committee to implement the Affordable Care Act does nothing to decrease costs or increase health care access for the people of my district,” Bigelow said. “In fact, this bill would increase costs of insurance premiums, causing my constituents and all Californians to pay more for health care.”

“State and federal legislation to implement ObamaCare will affect all future generations of Californians. We must be sure that the oversight process for health care is deliberate, fiscally responsible and beneficial to our state and our future.”

    OMG!!!!!!! The above (humorous) link has earned me an instantaneous email response from Assemblymember Bigelow thanking me for "taking the time to contact my office" and providing his contact telephone numbers. So, Assemblymember Bigelow, please know (via this 2nd email communique) I do support your opposition to the implementation of the abomination of ObamaCare. I look forward to your 2nd instantaneous acknowledgment. ********** Now knowing that the Mt. Dem. provides all our emails to article originators, we should not pass up the opportunity this provides. Many thanks.
