The petition (click here) has grown to 935 signatures in just a couple days. Five thousand signatures are needed and the web site is suddenly experiencing trouble registering email addresses other than gmail accounts. When this petition gets the required 5,000 signatures, "...the Obama Administration will review it, make sure it gets to the appropriate policy officials, and issue an official response" per the site's policy. The deadline is October 22, 2011.
Further, it sometimes takes several tries to get the petition to display in your browser. Keep trying to view the petition and it will eventually display. It will be a significant statement if we can complete this petition process before the Obama administration shuts it down.
Please share this information and help repeal ObamaCare. Since passage of ObamaCare at least 1 million more people have lost their insurance coverage and America's poverty rate has surged. Rates of insurance for unemployed adults under 26 years of age have fallen, but nearly double the number of people over 26 have lost their insurance.
"Between 2009 and 2010, the percentage of people covered by private health insurance declined from 64.5 percent to 64.0 percent, while the percentage covered by government health insurance increased from 30.6 percent to 31.0 percent. The percentage covered by employment-based health insurance declined from 56.1 percent to 55.3 percent." http://www.census.gov/newsroom/releases/archives/income_wealth/cb11-157.html
The Kaiser Family Foundation 2011 report shows, "The 9% increase for family premiums between 2010 and 2011 is significantly greater than the 3% family premium increase between 2009 and 2010."
