DO YOU HAVE ONE FIGHT LEFT IN YOU?

I know, I know…..we’ve fought and fought and you’ve called and emailed and tea partied and town halled and the health care reform bill keeps coming back. 

WELL, it looks like we are finally at the end of this struggle and it comes down to this:  The House needs to pass the Senate bill and if they don’t then it is finally dead.  There are other scenarios floating around such as the Slaughter solution, but I don’t think that even they are that brazen.  I also think that the Slaughter solution, were it to be employed, would be overturned in the courts.  

SO, here’s what we must do again.  We must call, email, and if at all possible go to our representatives and senators offices and make our voice heard.  The White House is in full battle mode.   Yes there is arm twisting, yes there is deal making, yes there are threats and promises and all sorts of  things going on in the background.    Not only this, but the White House has sent text messages out to every citizen who has signed up to receive updates from the White House urging them to call their representatives. 

Once again, the people must stand together or our country will suffer the consequences.  If we fail to do whatever we can to keep this atrocious bill (which has yet to be completely published) from becoming law, how will we be able to look our children in the face.  After all, they are the ones who will be paying the price. 

So, if you have called and emailed in the past; do it again.  If you have NEVER called or emailed your representatives go to your phone or computer right now and join the fight.  You will feel like you have at least made the effort to have your voice heard in this important debate.

Let’s take the fight to them and let them know that WE THE PEOPLE are saying NO!

Here’s what you need:

To call the capital switchboard, call 1-202-224-3121.  Then tell the operator the name of the legislator that you want to speak to and they will connect you. 

To email your representatives in the House of Representatives, go to www.house.gov and you can look up your representatives website from there.

To email your Senator, go to www.senate.gov and you can look up your senator from there by clicking on the link to their office.

  1. CS…you exactly right….I emailed my Congressman yesterday to let him know I think this bill is unconstitutional, that they don’t have the Constitutional authority to mandate we buy a product of any kind and that I am against providing taxpayer money for abortion or to allow illegals to be covered under this plan.

    (which BTW I’m not even sure that this bill has been completely written yet as of today. That’s why we have no CBO score yet.

  2. Howdy, I’m a long-time lurker and also have been too shy to submit a comment.

  3. I don’t know, maybe it’s just me but I have to ask… Is anybody else getting tired of hearing about healthcare? It seems like that is the only thing on the news lately. Yes, I know it is important but gosh how many times do you have to hear the same stuff? Tell us something new or don’t talk about it.

    • Oh no I’m not hearing about Obamacare, because every day now we hear something about it we didn’t know that is bad. No wonder Pelosi said, “you won’t know what’s in the bill until it passes”. She knew we wouldn’t like it if we knew what was in it before passing it. So now by learning something new that’s in it everyday, we can keep those people that would forget how mad they are now, mad enough to still remember their anger in November and stop this insanity in it’s tracks.

      Of course there’s enough coming to still keep people mad……amnesty for illegals is next, even though last time it was brought up by Bush around 80% were against it and that backed Bush down on it, to this administration that won’t matter and they’ll probably steamroll it through just like Health Care before the November elections. I think Republican Lindsay Graham is going to help the Dems on this issue or at least it appears that way right now. For Their Next Act.
