Louisa Board of Supervisors
October 1, 2012

Mr. Chairman and Members of the Board:

My name is Ralph Brickey. I live in the Patrick Henry District. I am a member of the Louisa TEA Party. I would like to address my remarks to the Board and to all the 1100 employees of Louisa County -- including all school teachers, fire fighters, EMTs, sheriff deputies, building officials, and so on.

Louisa County has been very generous with its benefits programs for all employees. We, the People, have generally been supportive of the Boards programs to hire, train and retain great teachers, security folks, and other staff.

Has it occurred to any of you that if Obama Care goes into effect, you all will lose those great benefits? You will be rolled into the one singular program along with everyone else. No more eye care, dental care, second opinions, and low co-pay. You will endure being assigned to doctors not of your choosing. You will be scrutinized by government committees to determine whether you are “worthy” of treatment. And, of course, you will eventually face the “death panel.” Not just you but your wife and your children.

So when you go to the polls November 6 remember you are not just voting for a President but for your own health care benefits OR NOT !!!

Thank you for your time and consideration.
