2011 - Presently, there is more than sufficient amount of revenue
that flows out of the local community through tax payer dollars
that, with a modest portion diverted into community development
programs, that can help underwrite health and welfare plans for
uninsured and underinsured workers and their families. For instance,
if local taxpayers contributed 50% of their annual tax bill to our
charity to underwrite programs for uninsured and underinsured workers,
this support would be a major step toward solving the uninsured
working family problem. These contributions could, in some cases,
result in up to a dollar-for-dollar deduction or at least, reduce
Supporters tax liabilities significantly depending upon each benefactors
(individual or corporation) net income and write-off situation.
There is an
ancient Celtic expression that says, Its in the shelter
of each other that the People live!! which describes our position
exactly. Why should we try this system? It is very simple because
under our plan each community immediately benefits from 100% of
their tax dollars vs. (a per capita deficit or) the diminished rate
that returns to the community through the current revenue sharing
system. Through utilization of this plan, local employers and private
supporters participate and get to see their tax dollars help the
people in their community who truly need it. Our project offers
an effective option for individuals and organizations genuinely
interested in building a better future for themselves and their
families in their local community. In conclusion, the choice is
simple. We can continue to pay taxes to fund an ineffective health
care bureaucracy that does not meet the needs of our local community
or find ways to support organizations such as IPHF and witness your
tax dollars improve life in the community from which they came.
Is there really any question as to the preferable alternative?

emergency medical and death benefits. This coverage serves as a safety
net to protect employers and employees who have little or no health
insurance or medical coverage.
through our organizations, these benefits can be subsidized by way
of local taxpayer dollars, but unlike the national plans, the benefits
would be conferred directly to members of the local community.
