‘Tis the Season to be Jolly, Fa La La La...
Republican State Representatives want you to think they are giving you an early Christmas gift in HB1001.
If you asked for deep reaching tyranny and half-baked Medical Liberty, you can celebrate!
If not, you deserve to know the truth.
HB1001 is a bribe.
Your incessant demands for Medical Liberty have legislators in a tizzy. They are fearful for what legislative session could hold AND if you will decide they are no longer fit to be your representatives in the May primaries.
House Republicans are trying to have their Christmas cake and eat it too.
Reps are hopeful they can appease YOU by offering up a stale fruit-cake in the form of rehashed federal vaccine exemptions coupled with legalized discrimination through testing of the unvaccinated, in order to get Hoosiers to willingly accept Governor Holcomb’s demands to make dangerous portions of the state of emergency PERMANENT.
For those of you who haven’t read previous blog posts (1, 2, 3, 4), we will do a quick recap, but more on that later.
Next Thursday, December 16th, the House Pensions and Labor Committee will meet and hear public testimony on HB1001 and our Christmas wish is for YOU to be there!
Testifying at the State House eliminates the Legislature’s ability to claim ignorance. They have no choice but to look the issue in the face as they hear your heartbreaking stories as they go “on record”.
We heard so many amazing testimonies on November 23, when our representatives called a special session the week of Thanksgiving, surrounding the preliminary draft that is now HB1001.
Some question the timing of each of these meetings.
Some speculate that the legislature is attempting to trip up Medical Liberty activists.
Some believe the legislature is playing psychological games and ‘jerking the chain’ of their constituents, as they bank on you not showing up due to the proximity of the Holidays.
We all need to ask ourselves,
“What is the sincerity of the State Legislature in wanting to protect the livelihoods of Hoosiers?”
Let’s look at the facts
Plus, the dangerous state of emergency language is still present.
Christmas packages should be tied up in ribbons and strings, but we CANNOT allow our liberties to be tied up in tyrannical federal financial strings.
Now, the week before Christmas another special session is called!
I suppose one ‘might’ consider movement on an actual bill to be a gift; is it, though?
Do you truly expect the legislature to take further action this close to Christmas?
Will they actually head back down to the State House the week between Christmas and New Years?
The 2022 Session will begin, at the latest, on January 10th.
They waited too long to actually achieve this goal by the end of 2021.
We absolutely need to continue to hold legislators accountable NOW and after the first of the year to ensure our concerns are not brushed under the rug and out the door along with the dried up pine needles from our Christmas trees.
What is next?

As promised a recap of the issues with HB1001. I do encourage you to go back and read the blog posts from November for all the details. Here is the short list:
As per usual, Hoosiers, you always amaze me with your eagerness to TAKE ACTION! Your hard work and communication with legislators is paying off even if their efforts continue to be more like Charlie Brown's Christmas tree.
Make no mistake- you are the reason for all the "trouble" this season!
From the bottom of my heart, Thank you!
