Meeting a Victim of the UK NHS

We have got to defeat the Democrats and Repeal the HellCare Tax Monstrosity.  I just got back from a friend’s house who was having a barbeque fundraiser to fund their mission trip to Peru this fall. I met a lady there from England.  She and her family have been in the US for 9 years.  In 2000, while still in the UK, she was diagnosed with MS ~Multiple Sclerosis~; she didn’t get any treatment; the doctor just told her that to return if she had any problems.  After being in the US for awhile, she went to a doctor here for an ear infection.  When the doctor looked at her medical history, he noticed that she had MS and asked her what treatment she was on.  The doctor was speechless when my new friend told him that she wasn’t on any.  Before she left the doctor’s office, she had an appointment with a Neurologist where she immediately began treatment. 

Her and her husband’s original plan was to work here in the US for 2 years and then go back to England.  After being here for only 7months, they were offered by her husband’s company to get a permanent work visa.  They immediately knew that they wanted to stay.  She said the living environment was much better here. With her history with the medical system in the UK, I’m not surprised.  

I had a “discussion “with a BO/BS supporter who says he supports the Hellcare Tax Monstrosity because he believes that only then will the elderly and sick get healthcare.   This was my response to him.
"I have personal experience with transplants and pre-existing conditions and your assumptions are just plain wrong.   First of all, how many of your “fantasy” scenarios actually happen?   How many abortions do happen?   Second, why do you believe that only the government can provide healthcare?  We personally were beneficiaries of charity when my daughter was on dialysis.  We could not have paid for her dialysis.  It was the generosity of fellow Americans ~not the government~ that kept my daughter alive while on dialysis.  It was ~and continues to be~ medical technologies that were discovered because of free-market healthcare ~not government bureaucrats~ that kept her alive.  It’s also those “evil” pharmaceutical companies that are keeping her alive right now.  Without the anti-rejection meds that she is currently on, she wouldn’t be with us.  In addition, we have already had to pay more because of Hellcare.  My dh’s employer had to change insurance companies because of the increases from HellCare, so our deductible that we pay out of pocket is several hundred more a month than last year.  The future of my daughter depends on medical technologies yet to be discovered; that will only be discovered within the private sector of medicine.

"You really believe that HellCare will save the elderly and sick?  Who do you think will be the first to be cut from treatment when it becomes too expensive to keep them alive?  Great Britain’s government healthcare kills off over 130,000 elderly patients every year.
"Or how about taking BO/BS at his word when he said that “taking a pain pill” instead of life-saving surgery for a 99 year old woman who needed a pacemaker would be the better option. 

"The hypocrisy of your “choice” of healthcare for the elderly and/or sick over the life of pre-born babies is astonishing.  It isn’t an either/or choice.”

My experience tonight with an actual victim of socialized medicine in the UK just solidifies my resolve to defeat BO/BS and the Democrats in the Senate and House so that we can Repeal not only HellCare, but the other job-killing and Liberty killing laws that the Democrats have forced on Americans.

Repeal and Replace Steve Cohen

From the Bergmann for Congress Campaign:
Supreme Court’s Decision on ‘Obamacare’ Sets the Debate for November’s Election

Make no bones about it, the new tax foisted on Americans will kill job creation!  This tax increase is the largest tax increase in the history of the world.

Five Supreme Court Justices today decided to not impartially rule on the case – i.e. execute their solemn Constitutional charge.  They instead decided to serve as five more Affordable Care Act,
 'ObamaCare' lawyers - and create a brand new argument to unconstitutionally "justify" the ObamaCare mandate.

Charlotte Bergmann, U.S. Congressional candidate for Tennessee 9th District states, “I am disappointed in the Court’s ruling today. ObamaCare will stand as a massive tax on Americans. ObamaCare will add Trillions to our national debt, deter future job growth, and force thousands of individuals out of their existing health care coverage. The choice in the upcoming election couldn’t be clearer."

“Congressman Steve Cohen voted to pass ObamaCare and continues to support it. If elected, I will vote to repeal ObamaCare and replace it with real reforms that put patients and doctors in charge, create more choices for consumers and actually drive down the cost of health care.”

Bergmann then voiced her support for the following market-oriented reforms to health care:

• Make health care expenses and health insurance 100% tax deductible for individuals

• Create more choices through market reforms, including the ability to purchase insurance across state lines

• Aggressive medical malpractice and legal tort reform

• Preserve and protect Medicare through patient-doctor choice, not government cuts that deny seniors services

ObamaCare’s negative effects on job creation and U.S. citizens.

• Starting in 2013, Medicare payroll taxes increase 0.9 percentage points for people with incomes over $200,000 ($250,000 for couples filing jointly). Also, people at this income level would pay a new 3.8 percent tax on investment income. The 10-year tax increase: $210.2 billion.

  • Starting in 2018, a new 40 percent excise tax on high-cost health plans, so-called "Cadillac plans" (over $10,200 for individuals, $27,500 for families), kicks in. That's a tax increase of $32 billion in 2018 and 2019.

• Starting in 2014, a new annual fee on health insurance providers begins. Total estimated 10-year tax increase: $60.1 billion.

• Starting in 2013, the floor on medical expense deductions on itemized income tax returns will be raised from 7.5 percent to 10 percent of income. That's estimated to be an additional tax of $15.2 billion over the next 10 years.

An unelected board of 15 bureaucrats having the ability to deny health care to senior citizens

• Violates religious conscience: 43 Catholic organizations – including the University of Notre Dame – have sued the U.S. Dept. of HHS over mandates regarding contraception that conflict with the moral teachings of those organizations.

The tax increases in the health care legislation reverses a trend of federal tax cuts and represent the first significant tax increases since 1993.  For the sake of our families, Republicans are outraged and are mobilizing for a 2010 redux...for our LIBERTY!  We have learned that Congress has no right to force us to purchase something we don't want to purchase; but Congress has a right to tax...and tax...and tax us into tyranny.  If liberty is our goal, the Supreme Court has failed its people.

As I have already stated, "If elected, I will fight inch by inch in defense of the Constitution to Repeal and Replace Obamacare."

Memphis People of Faith: We need Your Help to Protect our Religious Liberty

You're invited to participate in one of the most important political gatherings in recent history in Memphis. 


Fellow Patriots and People of Faith,

It is my honor to invite you to a Meet and Greet held by my good friend Dr. Bob Walker, Deacon of Incarnation Catholic Church.

The Catholic Church and other Christian denominations are becoming increasingly concerned about the current administration's outright attack on our First Amendment rights of Freedom of Religion.

Will you stand with us to protect your Freedom of Religion?

As Deacon Bob said in his letter to the Catholic Churches in Memphis "Spiritual warfare prayer and proclamation of the gospel in life and word is the first offense against evil." He proclaimed that it is our duty as Christians to "educate and form our nation in the likeness and image of Christ in liberty, freedom of religion, economics free from the sin of envy (i.e. socialism) and politics free from tyranny. Doing this involves electing Senators and Representatives who are faithful Christians and who reflect the teachings of Christ."

Please join Deacon Bob and myself, along with others in our community who wish to protect our slowly eroding rights at 6:30pm on Wednesday, June 27th at 8475 Dogwood Rd, in Germantown.  Please feel free to click here in the upper right to make your reservation. 

Charlotte Bergmann
Candidate for US Congress 

Personal Note from TNWAHM

As a follower of Christ, I have become increasingly frustrated as our rights as Christians have been trampled on by our government.  The fact that my tax dollars goes to support the killing of pre-born children is nauseating to me.  The fact that my tax dollars are causing the destruction of families by “replacing” the father with a check from the government and enabling dependence instead of self-reliance sickens me.   As People of Faith, we must work together to make our voices known.  That goes beyond the walls of our churches and synagogues into the voting booths and city councils, school boards, state legislators and Congress.  We have the responsibility as citizens of Memphis and of the United States to preserve the God given Rights of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness for our children and grand-children.  

Partnering with Charlotte Bergmann in defeating Steve Cohen will be an effective sign to the Country that you can rebuild a city ~and a nation~ thru Liberty, Prosperity and Reconciliation; that our votes will truly reflect our values as “People of Faith”.  Come meet Charlotte Bergmann and hear her heart for her native Memphis.  Hear her story of how her faith and hard work is bringing people together to work together for the Prosperity of all of Memphis.  

Even if you are not in TN-9, it is important to you that she beats Steve Cohen.  We need to send reinforcements to the Conservative Patriots in Congress that are working to bring our Country back to its Founding Principles of limited government in the Constitution.  Charlotte Bergmann will be that voice for common sense and the Constitution. You can help by donating and volunteering for her campaign.  Just go to

Charlotte Bergmann: Only Candidate that can Beat Steve Cohen

The Commercial Appeal weighed in with their opinion of the August Repblican primary.  While they are still in CongressCritter Cohen’s corner, they pointed out why he is worried about Charlotte Bergmann.  First, while Memphians have voted Democrat since the 70’s, it is a city of church going, socially conservative people.  With the Democrat Party and Steve Cohen taking such a public stand for abortion and gay marriage ~that are in direct opposition to most Memphian’s values~ and the latest salvo of placing illegal entrants above citizens by executive fiat, ~Cohen is a vocal supporter of  the Dream Act~ many people are waking up to the fact that their vote doesn’t reflect their values.  Add to that the downward spiral of the economy; you have many rethinking their support and votes.  Then add in redistricting; and candidate Charlotte Bergmann and you have the perfect storm for the Democrats and Steve Cohen.  

Why is Charlotte Bergmann the only candidate in the Republican race that can beat Steve Cohen?  First, as Memphis City Councilman, Myron Lowry noticed, is "her tenacity" and as Carolyn Gates, former County Commissioner, stated, “She’s a worker bee”.    Even with the fact that Republican challenger, George Flinn, has dropped $1 Million of his own money into his campaign, and his connections in the business community; he has not raised much more than Ms. Bergmann.   While Dr. Flinn may be a “household name” because of his numerous previous runs, it doesn’t necessarily translate into Memphis voter’s support.  In fact, his name and his money didn’t get him elected in his previous attempts for Congress or Mayor.  When he ran against A.C. Wharton for mayor in 2002, he lost 62% to 37%.

Charlotte Bergmann’s message that Liberty and Reconciliation will bring Prosperity to Memphis is resonating with voters.  Memphians understand that for Memphis to succeed and to once again become a leading city that attracts businesses, we must have Reconciliation between all of its communities.  The days of telling voters that if they don’t agree with City Hall, then they should just move are over.  Ms. Bergmann is the only candidate that recognizes that Reconciliation is longed for and needed in TN-9.  

Ms. Bergmann’s message of Liberty is also connecting with Memphians; Liberty in keeping more of their own money thru lower taxes, Liberty in small businesses knowing what is best for their business, not some government bureaucrat ~who has no experience in meeting payrolls or making a profit~; Liberty in individuals ability to make the best decision for their kids’ education.   Charlotte Bergmann believes in individuals coming up with solutions, not in government telling private citizens what they must do.  

Charlotte Bergmann also has name recognition, not only from her previous run in 2010, but also from her ~now infamous~ interview with a local radio host.  Her courage in the face of the obvious hostility and vitriol of ThadeusMatthews  underscores her commitment and passion for the citizens of Memphis.  There are countless people that credit Ms. Bergmann with getting him off the airwaves. 

Charlotte Bergmann is the only Republican candidate that can beat Steve Cohen in November.  She needs your help by voting for her in the August Republican Primary.  She needs your help in getting out her message to the voters of TN-9.  Donate or sign-up for a yard sign or to volunteer at

How will you help get Charlotte Bergmann to D.C.?

    Tired Tootsies? Margarita 911

    After pounding the pavement with my friend and Congressional candidate Charlotte Bergmann; knocking on doors and meeting the fine people in Memphis neighborhoods, I was beat.  My feet hurt, I had a little sunburn and I was wiped out.  It was the same feeling I had after spending the day at Silver Dollar City with my daughters the week before.  I decided that I deserved a bit of pampering:  my own spa at home.  I lit the candles in my bathroom and poured a glass of wine.  I started out by cleansing and nourishing my face with spa Facial by BeautiControl.  I then started my bath and poured in some Limited Edition Margarita Bath Salts.  As I let the lime, salty fragrance envelope me, I lay back with my eyes closed; just enjoying the moments of peace and quiet.  Ahhhh, it was wonderful.  I then pampered my tired feet with the Margarita Foot Scrub.  I rubbed off the hardened, dead skin with circular motions.  I then dried off, massaged my feet with Margarita Foot Crème and put on my spa socks.  I smoothed some Corticure Comfort Lotion on my sunburn ~I didn’t have any on my face and neck because of my spa Facial Defend and Restore Moisturizer with SPF 20 ~   I put my PJ’s on and headed to bed.  It was wonderful.  The next morning, my feet felt great and ready to go again.

    Margarita Gift w/Purchase:

    Free 1 oz. Margarita Extreme Repair Hand Creme with Purchase of Margarita Bath Set.  Bath Set includes Margarita Bath Salts; Foot Scrub and Foot Creme.  Just email me with your order and I'll throw in a pair of spa socks too.
