So what happens when the government becomes your doctor?  That is the question highlighted by the documentary "Sick and Sicker".  The Redmond Patriots will show the documentary as part of a focus in August on "Obamacare" and potential problems with the Affordable Care Act.
 
Redmond Patriots spokesman, Bob Perry, was a guest on 1110 KBND's Your Town on August 6th.
 
  "I'VE WATCHED THIS DOCUMENTARY TWICE- EVERYTIME I WATCH IT - IT JUST GETS SCARIER - BUT I DO SEE HOW THEY ARE LINKING THIS WITH THE FUTURE OF OBAMA-CARE- CAUSE THE FUTURE IS A SINGLE-PAYER SYSTEM - THAT'S THEIR WHOLE GOAL OF THE THING."
 
Perry says the documentary is about Canada's health care system and it highlights the problems of rationing and extremely long waits for health care.
 
The Redmond Patriots meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. at the Highland Baptist Church in Redmond, on Monday, August 13th..
 
They continue the same theme critical of nationalized healthcare on Monday, August 27th.  Dr. Frank Rosenbloom of Portland is the featured speaker.  He is the Oregon Director of "docs4patientcare" and Perry says he's a recognized authority on the subject of government controlled health care.  That meeting also starts at 6:30 at Highland Baptist Church, Redmond.
 
The  meetings are free and open to the public and Perry says the Redmond Patriot members welcome differing viewpoints and encourage people to come out to express their opinions.
