Twila Brase, president and co-founder of the Citizens Council for Health Freedom, will describe their efforts at the Minnesota state legislature to protect Minnesota’s strongest-in-the-nation medical privacy law, oppose a proposed tax on medication and oppose a taxpayer-funded health care commission pushed by the industry. She will also discuss CCHF’s efforts in Washington, D.C. to restore affordable coverage options and to build an escape hatch from the unsustainable Medicare program. Lastly, she will comment on her upcoming book, “Big Brother in the Exam Room."
Brief remarks will also be made by
- Gubernatorial candidate Tim Pawlenty
- Barbara Sutter, Secretary at MN GOP
- Pam Myhra, candidate for state auditor
- Robert Barnheiser, candidate for U.S. Senate against Amy Klobucher
- Patricia Boyd Peerson, for the Minnesota Fallen Heroes Calendar
In addition, two delegates and two alternates will be elected to the state convention June 1 and 2 in Duluth. Each of the four seniors who are interested in running will speak for one minute, followed by a written, secret ballot. The two who receive the most votes will be delegates and the others will be alternates.
Cost: $5/member, $10/non-member
PLEASE NOTE: Only paid members will have a vote in the election of delegates and alternates. If you haven't paid your 2018 dues, you may pay when you arrive on Tuesday or send a check made payable to “Republican Seniors of MN” to Don Teigen, Treasurer, 7250 Lewis Ridge Pkwy, #217, Edina, MN 55439.
Beginning with our January meeting, members pay $5 to attend and non-members pay $10. Dues for the remainder of 2018 are $15 per person or $22.50 per couple. If you attend four of the remaining seven meetings (we don't meet in July) you will save money by becoming a member. The fee per meeting includes a selection of beverages and small bagged snacks and helps us defray the cost of the room.
