I Pledge to Deny Myself Medicare for Life!
Okay, here is the deal. If you are attempting to stop healthcare reform for fear of SOCIALISM than I would like you to sign the petition I created to pledge your support to refuse to use the Medicare you already have or to promise to never sign up for it. That's right, Medicare is a government run insurance administered by private insurance (unfortunately) to private doctors and hospitals much like the evil public option in the healthcare bill will be. You do not have to sign up for the benefits it is voluntary.
Yes, you will have to still pay taxes for those that do want the benefits just like people without children have to pay taxes to fund public schools, or pacificsts fund military ventures, etc. but you don not have to accept the evil socialistic handout.
I urge you to take a stand against the socialism you so fear.

We the undersigned are opposed to socialized medicine in all its forms. As such, we declare that we will refuse to sign up for Medicare coverage in the future and if we have it now we shall, having seen the error of our ways, request to be removed from the program. We no longer wish to support socialism. We are confident that the private market will adequately provide for our health care needs.
