As you representative returns home, they will try to justify their health care vote to protect against the coming backlash. You should ask them a simple question, "what does 'Insurance' mean?" This stems from the part of the bill forcing insurance companies to provide coverage for preexisting conditions.
The definition is not the place they are supposed to get tripped up, so you can help them if they look like they are struggling with confusion or trying to wiggle out of answering. The definition is not the 'trap', the trap is calling them out on using Orwellian language to push through the bill (twice); with something I tried to point out months ago made zero sense; that is forcing companies to cover preexisting condition.
Here is my logic/trap:
1) Insurance is small payments (or premiums) in return for a promise that in the event of a specific event the company will give you a large sum. The small sums are a fee for the company to take on your risk.
2) Welfare is aid money, or that large sum, without the small payments because you need it and someone believes you should get it.
3) Which one of those (insurance or welfare) is forcing a company to cover preexisting conditions more like?
I think it is clear that coverage for preexisting conditions is welfare and not insurance. If you believe that we should provide for the sick without any health insurance that is fine, but make that argument. Do not use Orwellian doublespeak to try to convince people what you are pushing is something different then what it actually is.
You can approach pitching this to your representative in a number of different ways. You can ask them to define both one at a time and then ask the question of which one it is more like. You could define them both yourself and then ask which is closer to forcing a company to cover preexisting conditions. You could just come out and say that you think it is more like welfare and ask them to tell you why you are wrong. There are only two 'musts'; be respectful and video tape the exchange.
