National Center for Policy Analysis and Salem Radio Network Deliver Million-Plus Signature Petition Opposing Government Run Health Care
Date:9/9/2009

United States.

"With the mainstream media as determined as ever to aid and abet the liberal Washington establishment, talk radio has once again proved to be the counterweight that can keep the debate alive and elevate the concerns of Americans across the country," said SRN president Greg Anderson. "That more than a million people took time out of their busy lives to sign this petition shows just how opposed our audience has become to a debate-free imposition of government-run health care."

Additional members of Congress at the event included: Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-GA), Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-TX), Rep. Bob Inglis (R-SC), Rep. Steve King (R-IA), Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX) and Rep. John Shadegg (R-AZ).

The signatures for the "Free Our Health Care Now" petition filled more than 61,000 pages, which were delivered in boxes to Congress via ambulance and gurney.

The National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan public policy research organization, established in 1983. The NCPA's goal is to develop and promote private alternatives to government regulation and control, solving problems by relying on the strength of the competitive, entrepreneurial private sector. Topics include reforms in health care, taxes, Social Security, welfare, criminal justice, education and environmental regulation. More than 25,000 documents are accessible for research at www.ncpa.org.

NCPA President and Kellye Wright Fellow John C. Goodman is credited by the Media Research Center as playing the pivotal role, along with former Sen. Phil Gramm and columnist Bill Kristol, in the defeat of "HillaryCare" -- the Clinton Administration's plan to overhaul the U.S. health care system. The Wall Street Journal has called Dr. Goodman "the father of health savings Accounts," and The National Journal
