Update:  Success!

 
December 16, 2000


Dear friend of liberty,

Thank you!  Because thousands of T.L.C. activists supported
Representative Ron Paul's legislation, we stopped Big Brother for
another year.  Here's how you did it.

Back on June 13, Ron Paul's amendment (H. Amdt. 787) to the
Labor/H.H.S./Education appropriations bill (H.R. 4577) passed
the House.  Hurrah!  That amendment blocks the creation of a
"unique medical identifier" - the dreaded national medical
identification number - that would be assigned to every man,
woman, and child in the U.S.

Not so fast...on October 13, the Paul amendment came in danger of being
removed in a conference committee.  Without that amendment, the federal
government could implement the key provision of the infamous 1993
Clinton health-care proposal:  the assignment of a specific number to
every American so that your health-care history could be tracked and
your personal medical records collected in a massive national medical
database.

Because of the response to our Liberty Alert sent in October, thousands
of messages arrived on Capitol Hill supporting the Paul amendment.
Those messages told our elected representatives two things:  we are
watching and we expect you to keep the Paul amendment in the
appropriations bill!  That's the key - stopping "business as usual" that
goes on behind closed doors - that is what The Liberty Committee is here
to do.

The entire appropriations bill is expected to be signed into law by the
president, but our amendment is only a one-year "fix."  Next, we must
gear up for an outright repeal of the entire provision of the 1996
Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (H.I.P.A.A.) that
mandates the assignment of a unique medical identification number to
every American.

We are stronger now and we are a winning team  We will build on this
success and, with your help, work for repeal in the 107th Congress.

Thank you to the thousands who helped in this critical effort!  You are
making a difference.
