Will the Healthnet mtg include what will hAppen IF Obama"care" isn't stopped? Fewer seniors is one of the goals. And is this the same Healthnet who denied a woman breast cancer treatment (experimental)--she died--but approved the SAME treTment for a Healthnet secretary who survived? Playing God?

I remember the Healthnet denial story. The dead woman was a young mom with 2 kids. Shame. Also no local congress people have signed house resolution 615 which would require THEY give up their private federal medical coverage and accept "obamacare"....gee no takers??
