August is THE crucial month! While the Senators and Congressmen are home in their districts, let’s give them a barrage of attacks on Obama’s proposals to deform our health system! Even as public opinion has turned against the plan, he still has sixty votes in the Senate and an ample margin in the House to pass it. Unless we unleash a FIRESTORM of public outrage, the bill will pass! And your own personal health care will never be the same.
Here’s how to fight it:
1. Arm yourself with the facts: Read Chapter 4 in Catastrophe, “Obama’s Health Care Catastrophe”, which details how Obamacare will destroy American health care and explains what has happened in Canada!
2. Donate Money: The League of American Voters is running an advertisement Dick wrote in the swing states with key Senators. Give them as much as you can to run these ads.
To send checks by mail:
The League of American Voters
722 12th Street N.W. Fourth Floor
Washington, D.C. 20005
FedEx if possible! Time is of the essence.
We need to run these ads this month!
3. Email your friends, family and associates: We need a massive outpouring of public opinion. Email your Christmas card list, your colleagues from the office, your friends, and your family. Bring them the facts about health care and Obama’s dangerous proposals. Think particularly of anyone you know in the following states (where the key Senators live):
a. Maine (Senators Susan Collins and Olympia Snow)
b. New York (Senator Kirsten Gillibrand)
c. Virginia (Senator Mark Warner and Jim Webb)
d. Indiana (Senator Evan Bayh)
e. Ohio (Senator John Voinovich)
f. North Carolina (Senator Kay Hagan)
g. Florida (Senator Mel Martinez)
h. Louisiana (Senator Mary Landrieu)
i. Arkansas (Senators Mark Pryor and Blanche Lincoln)
j. Nebraska (Senator Ben Nelson)
k. South Dakota (Senator Tim Johnson)
l. Iowa (Senator Chuck Grassley)
m. North Dakota (Senators Kent Conrad and Byron Dorgan)
n. Montana (Senators Max Baucus and Jon Tester)
o. Wyoming (Senator Michael Enzi)
4. Write or call your Senators and Congressman: Then sit down and write (by hand if possible) a letter to each of your Senators and your member of Congress. If you are not sure who your Congressman or Senators are, go to these links to find out:
Simply address the letter to:
Your Senator or Congressman:
US Senate or US House of Representatives, Washington DC 20510 (Senate) or 20515 (House)
Sending a letter by snail mail is much more effective than by email.
They haven’t really caught up with the 21st Century in Washington. So buy a real live postage stamp and mail your letters directly. Use the info from Catastrophe in your letter. Explain how your personal health care and that of our family will be adversely affected.
Even if your Senator or Congressman is a liberal Democrat or a Republican, write then anyway. It can influence the atmosphere in Washington. Senators and Congressmen talk and the more mail they get, the more public opinion weighs on them all. Even the ultra-liberals.
You can call Congress at (202) 224-3121.
Believe us. It works. Write today!
