Letter from Tea Party to Governor Robert Bentley

Staff Report

Several courageous Governors have announced that they will not move forward in implementing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

We, the undersigned grassroots leaders of Tea Party/Concerned Citizen Groups throughout Alabama, request that Governor Robert Bentley protect the citizens of Alabama against the massive tax increases inherent in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act by announcing that he will NOT implement this legislation in Alabama. We further appeal to Governor Bentley that any current and/or future spending not take place until legally required, so that when this law is repealed, the State will not have wasted funds.

We ask that Governor Bentley join the other Governors in exhibiting courage to stand up to the Federal Government’s massive intrusion into the lives of the citizens of the State of Alabama. That he will not be a party to socialized health care and the bankrupting of the State of Alabama, in direct contradiction to our Constitution and the founding principles of limited government.
