SPECIAL CALL FOR ACTION Health Care Reform AKA Politics 101
The honeymoon is drawing to a close for President Obama as he attempts to advance his plan for reforming the health delivery system in the United States. Phrasing like “Obama-care” and other clever plays on words are starting to raise their ugly heads. Remember, accomplishing something is infinitely more difficult than derailing something. The “derailers” are out in full force. This isn’t the Clinton era. The concepts of health care reform in the Days of Bill didn’t have the urgency that they have today. Many people are now beginning to appreciate that the train wreck ahead could make the current subprime mortgage debacle look like a walk in the park.
So…whaddayado? We need to mobilize the way Obama mobilized the electorate to become president. We need to get into the fray. We need to get everybody who has any concern about tomorrow’s health care into the fray. Start by writing the President, then your U.S. Senators and then your U.S. Representatives. Do it today. If you need help on what to say, how to say it, how to send it and/or where to send it, visit www.lifewest.edu/myfuture.html Do it today. If you don’t, you give up any and all rights to a legitimate bitch down the road.Source: “The Latest Stuff,” by Gerry Clum, President of Life West College, D.C.

Summit to be Held at FCA in August
For the sixth time in eighteen months, leaders of the chiropractic profession will gather to pool resources, make plans and rally the chiropractic troops at the Summit, to be held at the Florida Chiropractic Association Convention in Orlando, Florida August 27-30, 2009.
Representatives of the American Chiropractic Association, International Chiropractors Association, Association of Chiropractic Colleges, Congress of Chiropractic State Organizations, and top chiropractic colleges, vendors and practice consultants will come together and develop a unified effort to spread the chiropractic message and encourage legislators to pass laws that support chiropractic patients.
At the past five Summit meetings, groundwork was laid to forge a new coalition among key players in chiropractic politics, business and academics, to work toward getting our profession on the same page. The goal is to improve public relations through education, and enlist the aid of influential senators and congressmen-and-women to champion the causes of millions of chiropractic patients, who depend on our unity to receive the benefits they want and need under the new administration’s plan to provide health care coverage for all.
