The Constitution Revision Committee (CRC) is a 37-member commission which convenes every 20 years to review and propose changes to the Florida Constitution for voter consideration.

The CRC will be traveling the State of Florida to listen to input from Floridians about potential changes to the Florida Constitution. All interested persons are invited to attend CRC public hearings and speak to Commissioners about their ideas for revising the Florida Constitution. If you’d like to speak before the CRC at a public hearing, please complete an appearance form and bring your copy to the meeting. Forms will also be available to complete at the meeting location. Appearance forms may not be submitted in advance of a public hearing. Individuals requiring an accommodation to participate in these hearings (such as a sign language interpreter) are requested to notify the CRC five days prior to the scheduled hearing date by email to admin@flcrc.gov or by calling (850) 717-9550.

Congress is About to Take Away Your Rights!

 http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/

Call or Write your Senators and Representatives
and tell them to VOTE NO on  H.R. 1215!

The U.S. Congress is fighting hard to take away your rights and the power of individual states to protect those rights.

The influence of BIG BUSINESS over your elected representatives is being used protect careless and greedy companies and their insurers from the responsibility to pay for their own misconduct. They are working to transfer to taxpayers the expense of caring for the victims of corporate misconduct. And if the responsibility to pay for the harm they do disappears then a primary motive for manufacturers and drug companies to make safe products disappears with it.

Let’s Get Specific

H.R. 1215:
If your loved one ends up in a nursing home, and develops fatal bedsores because the nursing home chose to understaff to maximize profits, it won’t matter. This bill leaves victims of nursing home abuse with no practical remedy.

Is it okay with you if your hospitalized child suffers brain injury and dies because there were not enough health care professionals to provide proper supervision? Under this bill, Congress says your child does not have enough value to matter.

Congress is considering a devastating anti-justice wish list in H.R. 1215. The bill would federalize (so long states’ rights!) health care malpractice lawsuits, severely limiting victim’s access to justice.

Oppose H.R. 1215: Congress Should Protect Patients. Period. As many as 440,000 Americans die from preventable medical errors every year, making it the third leading cause of death in the U.S. behind heart disease and cancer.

XYZ drug company produces a drug that is hazardous to people taking it. Doctors are told that the drug “has problems”, but some doctors continue to prescribe it because they enjoy benefits from the drug company. You will not be permitted to sue those physicians under this law.

How Will It Cost Tax Payers?

Injured people must get care somewhere. If they cannot receive compensation from the party at fault, they will have to go elsewhere.

*Private health insurance costs can be expected to go up.
*Medicare will get hit for more payments.
*Medicaid will see increased claims.
*Social Security will see increases in disability claims.
*Healthcare costs will rise to cover the uninsured who seek treatment.
*Unemployment claims should be expected to rise as injured workers, uncompensated by the real wrongdoers, will make claims that would otherwise have been unnecessary.
*If you are somehow able to receive a jury verdict or settlement in any of the cases under this bill, the responsible party can require that any amounts over $50,000 be paid out over time; will it be one year, 10 years, 20 years, 30 years?? And what happens to your compensation if the wrongdoer goes out of business before the debt owed to you is paid?

So Why Would Congress Do This?

Because members of Congress owe big corporations and insurance companies for getting them elected. What other reason would cause Congress to pass laws they know will hurt Americans and add to an already heavy tax burden?

On October 25, 2016, EPC reported that Elizabeth Wettlaufer, 49, a nurse from Woodstock, was charged with 8 counts of first degree murder in what is being defined as possibly the worst case of a seriel killer in Canadian history.  EPC responded to this news by demanding an in-depth investigation into care homes in Canada, especially now that euthanasia is legal. Wettlaufer is now facing six more changes related to the abuse of patients in Woodstock and Paris Ontario.

Florida Nursing Home Owner Shield: FL bill 670 a clear violation of federal statute

_____________________________________________________________________

The Florida House and Senate recently passed a clearly protectionist bill. Fl 670, meant to shield the owners, investors, managers and other employees and individuals from liability for their failure to protect, and to ensure the well-being and rights of home residents, is a clear violation of federal code regarding these same individuals.

Rick Scott, Florida governor and holder of the largest Medicare Fraud Scam on record, dutifully signed this bill into law knowing full well that the abuse, neglect and deprivation of individual rights of nursing home residents would explode as a result.

Scott, apparently not remotely concerned with what is an obvious conflict of interest, or, against the best interests of nursing home residents, signed FL 670 into law.  This despite his active construction of the largest Medicare scams in US history.

10308126_655703157817352_3150440186206186545_nMiami officials exposed the fraud in June of 2009. Five states were involved and several fake businesses were found operating with the intent to defraud Medicare and Medicare Advantage for non-existent drugs and treatments for cancer and HIV. Scott, and seven other defendants were identified in the scam.

Guess how much time any one of them served for this fraud and theft? If you guessed “0“, you would be correct. Instead of going to prison for grand larceny, theft by deception or any other relevant charge, they paid 1.7 billion in fines and settlement and got a “get out of jail for 1.7 billion” pass.  Of course, we can find no evidence that the fine was actually ever paid in part or full.  More
