Got Another Minute to Talk Health Care? You Can Win $5,000!

Jan 26, 2010, 16:15 ET from Independent Women's Voice

WASHINGTON, Jan. 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Independent Women's Voice (IWV) announces a second video contest.  We want to hear your thoughts on the future of health care reform!

At IWV, we are concerned that the current health care proposals will make health care more expensive for millions of Americans, raise taxes, increase debt, reduce quality of care, gut seniors' health care, harm women, minorities, and the poor, and empower bureaucrats to make life and death decisions that should be left up to patients and doctors.

Fortunately, Scott Brown's unexpected victory in last week's special election in Massachusetts has stopped Democrats' health care plans dead in their tracks. Yet we know that something should be done to improve our health care system.  And an IWV poll indicates that the current healthcare legislation was among the top three most important issues to 86% of Massachusetts voters.

So now that the filibuster-proof Democratic supermajority is gone, what should health care reform look like going forward? We want to hear from YOU on what kind of health care reform you want to see. In this era of unprecedented consumer choice and rapid technological advancement -- the iPod, internet, twitter and Facebook -- we're looking for videos of your ideas so that we can spread your message around the country!  Keep it no longer than a minute. Make it funny, make it serious, tell a story -- whatever you think the best way is to get your message across.  And remember that we need to focus on what's realistic and achievable in creating an improved health care system!

The winning video will receive $5,000. As the election in Massachusetts showed, people can make a real difference in what happens in Washington. So grab your video camera -- it's time to help make history!
