Kansas NAACP Opposes Kansas "Health Care Freedom" Amendment


Kansas State NAACP schedules Press Conference to address opposition to the proposed "Kansas Health Care Freedom Amendment"
 
 
The proposed Kansas "Health Care Freedom" Amendment is a partisan Anti-Reform measure that is bad for Kansas
  
 

 On Wednesday, February 24th at 3:00pm, the Kansas State Conference of the NAACP will hold a Press Conference to discuss their opposition to the proposed Kansas "Health Care Freedom" Amendment. The Press conference will be held at the Docking State Office Building, 915 SW Harrison St., Topeka KS.  The Kansas "Health Care Freedom" Amendment is a proposed State constitutional amendment intended to block the enactment of Federal Health Care reform legislation.

"At a time when more than 300,000 Kansans are without health insurance, this amendment, which seeks to obstruct necessary reform measures and protects the practice of insurance companies discriminating against consumers, is wrong for our State and our Nation", said Kevin Myles, President of the Kansas State Conference of the NAACP. "This proposed amendment, introduced preemptively and before the creation of any final bill or statutory language for reasoned and appropriate consideration, is shamefully partisan and reflects an unwillingness on the part of some to engage in the genuine and meaningful process of reforming our Nation's Health Care system."

All Kansans interested in real health care reform should plan to attend and call on the Kansas Legislature to reject this partisan anti-reform measure, and to support the enactment of real health care reform legislation that provides quality and affordable health care for all.
