Honestly, I don’t know why we aren’t pushing on Montana’s soon-to-be-former Representative Dennis Rehberg about health care reform. Why should he get a pass? He and his party have yet to put anything forward at all. They talk about it, though. Rehberg has been silent, save for a promising to talk about talking about reform. His party has attack ads out – plenty of time and money to do that – but a plan? A white paper? A report? Anything?

All I hear are crickets…..Of course, one never knows – maybe he’s sleeping on some couch somewhere.

Could be anywhere.

It is entirely possible that Rehberg needs information from some other source than Fox News, so before ya’all close out your week and shut off that computer and pack the pens in the top drawer, consider sending him an email and letting him know that Montanans want health care reform and that it has to be real reform that ensures everyone has access to adequate health care. Much like the access and coverage that he and his 434 cohorts in the House of Representatives have.

You’ve contacted Baucus. You’ve contacted Tester. Probably more than once…and if you haven’t, you better do that too while you are at it….but yes – we got another one out there in Washington D.C., even though we rarely hear from Rehberg unless he’s running around the state handing out stimulus checks resulting from legislation he didn’t vote for.

If you can’t email, give Rehberg a call at one of his four local offices around the state – Missoula, Billings, Helena, and Great Falls – or you can use his toll-free number 1-888-232-2626.

Keep it short – don’t want to overwhelm the guy…he’s going to have to warm up to the idea, trust me.

I suggest you start with these facts:

Sixty percent of all bankruptcies are from medical bills.
That figure is up more than 50% from 2001.
AND – this one is the kicker folks…
SEVENTY FIVE PERCENT OF THESE PEOPLE HAD HEALTH CARE INSURANCE

Go ahead. Seriously. I bet, all told, that phone call or email will take less than 180 seconds. 3 minutes. And then The Kettlehouse is calling you and you can go there and feel that much better about leaving work a little early.

Just think of how much he’d love to hear from you. I bet his staff would enjoy it too.
