*BREAKING* Call to Action!


“Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. Thomas Paine American Crisis, No. 1 — 1776


CALL TO ACTION for supporters of free market alternatives to Medicaid Expansion!

I just received this notification from Senator Colbeck late last night

I’m sorry for the late notice, but I just received confirmation that I have been allocated a timeslot for testimony before the Government Operations Committee on behalf of my Patient-Centered Care Solution (SB459+). 

When:  Wednesday, 11am

Where:  Boji Tower, 124 W. Allegan Lansing, MI (Southeast of Capitol across Capitol Ave)

Why have free market alternative solutions been missing from the Medicaid Expansion legislative conversation??

These bills represent an opportunity for those free market options rather than an Expansion of Medicaid as proscribed in ObamaCare and as such carries all the abysmal outcomes to Michigan citizens, a massive increase in dependency and government control over the health care system carried on the back of Michigan ($2.25 billion over 10 years) and Federal taxpayers!


  • Letters of support for SB 459 (short 1-page fine) specifically and free market alternatives to Obamacare in general.  Submit letters electronically to jmurray@senate.michigan.gov or bring hard copies with you to Government Operations meeting on Wednesday.
  • Complete and submit yellow committee cards to committee clerk indicating support for SB 459.  When specifying who you represent, please specify:  Business Owner, Patient, Medical Professional, etc. as appropriate.
  • If able to attend in person, please e-mail jmurray@senate.michigan.gov indicating support for SB 459  with the Subject Line: I Support SB 459
  • In support of your assessment of the Patient-Centered Care Solution, Senator Colbeck has provided his:
  1. Proposed presentation to the Government Operations Committee, HERE
  2. A 1-Page Overview, HERE 
  3. Proposed bill package SB 459 HERE
  4. And “Bill #2”HERE
  • NOTE:  Bill #2 will have a real bill number by Tuesday afternoon
