  • Catholic Bishops stop legislating!
    The Catholic Church is fighting new rules that make it mandatory to provide contraception and for employees. Churches are exempt but Non-profit hospitals and organizations are not under the new rules. The church is fighting against the new moral and ethical ruling claiming religious liberty. Our local doctors and nurses are not religious employees and deserve full benefits.

  • Reform Benefits for Elected US Officials
    For decades, US national leaders have failed to solve the so-called impending crisis in Social Security and Medicare. This petition calls on Congress to pass and the President to sign a bill that will motivate them to find the solution by making Social Security and Medicare the sole retirement and healthcare benefits for all elected and appointed federal officials.

  • Fire Tennessee GOP lawmaker Senator Stacey Campfield
    Tennessee State Senator Stacey Campfield is misinforming and misleading his constituents by making false claims about HIV. He claims that it's "virtually impossible" for "regular" people to be infected. His ignorance could confuse many people who see him as a community leader. Please help stop the spread of this bigotry and ignorance!

  • Include Acupuncture Under Federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act: Deadline 1/31/12
    Acupuncture is safe, low cost, and effective medicine. Increasing its availability would benefit healthcare in America by reducing costs and improving outcomes for a wide range of health conditions. This is especially true for America's most vulnerable citizens, the sick and elderly, who could benefit the most from acupuncture if cost was less of a barrier.

  • TN Dept. of Health MASSAGE THERAPY
    House bill 2387, sponsored by Representative McCormick, would change the administrative department overseeing the massage regulatory program. On page 5 of the bill, Sections 11 and 12 would relocate Title 63-18, which is the Massage Licensure Act of 1995, from the Department of Health Related Boards (DHRB) to the Department of Commerce and Insurance (TDCI). The Department of Health Related Boards currently oversees all health professions while the Department of Commerce and Insurance oversees other professional licensing programs such as: electricians, plumbers, and real estate agents. Massage therapy is a health profession. The current administrative oversight of DHRB has worked since the state first began licensing massage therapists; there is no reason to change what is working. The massage licensure board is self-funded from licensure fees so the proposed move would not save tax dollars, streamline state government, or reduce duplication of efforts. In fact, a change in administrative oversight would require an application and process shift to conform to a new department. There has been no reason given as to why the sponsors of this bill feel an oversight change is even needed. TN Massage Therapists are opposed to these sections of HB 2387 and encourages members to contact the sponsor of the bill and their own state representatives and tell them you are opposed to Sections 11 and 12 of HB 2387. Contact them by email or phone or both. The sponsor of HB 2387 is Representative Gerald McCormick, he can be reached at 615-741-2548 or [email protected] The same bill on the Senate side of the General Assembly is SB 2249, sponsored by Senator Norris and Senator Bell. Senator Mark Norris, [email protected] or 615-741-1967 Senator Mike Bell, [email protected] or 615-741-1946 Find your state legislator by going to http://www.capitol.tn.gov/legislators/

  • Insurance equality for Chiropractic Care!
    As a practicing Doctor of Chiropractic Healthcare, I know first hand that the vast majority of Americans (especially the military veterans returning home) need Chiropractic Care. It is also blatantly obvious that most of those same people would take advantage of those benefits, if; covered the same as seeing any other type of doctor.
