TAKE ACTION NOW!- Support Pro Life Healthcare

  


 March 09, 2010   © 2010        


The time to act is now  

 


Barack Obama wants to jam through his takeover of health care by March 18th – before the House takes an Easter recess. That way Democrats won’t have to face you and your opinions in those troubling “town hall meetings.”  

 

They are pulling out all the stops – and now, liberal Democrat Rep. Eric Massa says he was forced out of Congress because of his “no vote” on government health care.   

Here’s a guy that didn’t like the health care bill because it didn’t go far enough now saying he’s being forced out by his own party based on accusations of sexual harassment. National Journal quoted Massa: “Mine is now the deciding vote on the health-care bill, and this administration and this House leadership have said, quote unquote, they will stop at nothing to pass this health-care bill. And now they’ve gotten rid of me, and it’ll pass.”   

National Journal also reported Massa saying: “If Rahm Emanuel wants to come after me, maybe he ought to hold himself to the same standards I’m holding myself to, and he should resign.”   

He further described what he meant by strong-arm tactics with some accusations of his own: “Rahm Emanuel is son of the devil’s spawn. … He is an individual who would sell his mother to get a vote. He would strap his children to the front end of a steam locomotive.”   

Then, Massa says he was bullied while taking a shower in the congressional locker room: “I am showering, naked as a jaybird, and here comes Rahm Emanuel, not even with a towel wrapped around his tush, poking his finger in my chest, yelling at me.”   

Nice.   

Barack Obama is pushing socialized medicine as if his political life depends upon it. The fact of the matter is millions of innocent lives – including, perhaps, our own – depend upon this government monstrosity failing.   

Despite the election of Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown, the Senate wants to bypass the super-majority needed for this vote by convincing the House to pass their abortion-funded government controlled health-care bill unchanged.   

The leap of faith (off the cliff) they are asking House members to make is essentially, “Trust us” (wink-wink), “Vote for the terrible Senate bill with abortion funding, and health-care rationing, and we’ll ‘fixit’ after your blind vote of faith.”   

Should the House members buy their lethal legislation, there is nothing that can stop the Senate from saying, “Too bad, we couldn’t ‘fix’ the bill like we promised. Oh well, it’s heading to Obama’s desk for signature and will be imposed on the American people.”   

While the Democrats rant and rave and push and threaten, members of Congress must hear from us. They need to fear their constituents’ more than they do their party leadership. The health-care showdown depends upon what we do right now.   

Got 30 minutes? I can’t think of a better way to use it than to stop the worst bill ever to be introduced in Congress by making 31 calls to the swing votes in the U.S. House of Representatives. (Thanks to Dick Morris for compiling this list.)   

These are the people who most need to hear from us, as well as your own member of Congress.  If you have a fax machine, write a message on a sheet of paper including a request for a written response to the numbers in the middle column here:

WE ALSO NEED TO KEEP THE PRESSURE ON STUPAK; THAT HE DOES NOT  CAVE IN.
Rep. Bart Stupak,   D MI_01 PH 202-225-4735 FAX 202-225-4744
 
Late yesterday I contacted Rep. Kildee’s office to inform his staff of our new radio ad and to confirm his position on the health care bill. Recall that Rep. Kildee is a Catholic and member of the Stupak coalition.

Kildee’s office told me yesterday that he has not yet made up his mind.
You can contact Rep. Dale Kildee at the following numbers:

Code Red, Red Alert, OPERATION URGENT CARE  

   

Dear Fellow Tea Party Patriots,National Coordinator Jenny Beth Martin just got off the phone with 2 reliable sources in Washington DC who have told us that the Blue Dog Democrats are caving on health care and will be voting for it.  Many Blue Dogs are saying that Speaker Pelosi will have the votes before or by next Thursday and they are saying this very confidently.  The important thing to note is that as soon as Speaker Pelosi thinks she has the votes, she will immediately call for the vote on the House Floor.  That means it the vote could come as early as tomorrow, or it could be later.It is up to each and every one of us to stop this health care bill.  Over 60% of Americans do NOT want this bill yet that does not matter to the Democrats in Congress.  Sen. Coburn said on Tea Party Patriots’ Hot Tea Radio program today, that current polling shows 48% of Americans want the entire health care bill scrapped and to start over.  Only 25% of Americans even want this bill, and polling shows jobs is the top priority for Americans and health care reform ranks well down the list at number six.  Yet Speaker Pelosi and the Democrat leadership in the House and the Senate are prepared to shove this bill down our throats, regardless of what the American people want.   

We cannot let our liberty go without fighting for it with everything we have.  In the battle to prevent the government from taking over our health care, Tea Party Patriots across the country have left no stone unturned.  Right now we must keep the pressure up!!! The Blue Dog Democrats must feel as much pressure from the “Tea Party folks” as they are feeling from Speaker Pelosi and the Democrat House Leadership.   

The absolute most effective thing that you can do is to go to the office of the Congressmen who are on the fence and still undecided on this government takeover of health care bill.  Let the Undecided Congressmen see the live faces of the people who do not want this health care bill shoved down our throats.  Make them look in your eyes.   

In addition to the action items emailed late last night, we need you right now to plan an event and have car loads of people visiting the local district offices in a constant stream this week. 

Here is how to do it:  

  1. Check our site to see when other events are currently planned in your area to protest government take over of health care. You can see this by going to teapartypatriots.org, click on Tea Parties. Then click on your state and then click on Events.  Make a mental note of when events are currently planned.
  2. Now plan a visit to the targeted Congressmen in your state who are still undecided in their office tomorrow, Friday, over the weekend, and/or each day next week.  Plan an event that does not conflict with the time, date, and place of a currently planned event. For instance if one is planned at noon tomorrow, then plan on for 3:00 tomorrow.  We need as much constant pressure as possible.
  3. Login to teapartypatriots.org and list your event on our website. After logging in, click on My Account. Then click on Add Event.  Fill out the pertinent information.  Click Submit. We will have people approving events every couple of hours and you will get an email as soon as it is approved.
  4. Email all of your friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors an invitation to the event you are planning.  Each of us has a unique circle of influence that no one else has. Use that circle of influence to contact the people within it and tell them how important this vote is. Tell them why you are taking time away from your family, work, and other normal activities to plan an event and ask them to attend.
  5. Create an event for it on Facebook as well.  You can do this by click logging into facebook.com. On the left hand side, click on Events. Then click Create an Event and follow the directions on the site. Once your event is created, invite your friends on Facebook to attend as well.
Remember, the tea party movement and Tea Party Patriots began because individuals like you were tired of politics as usual and were willing to speak out against big government tax and spend policies.

Take Action If House passes Senate bill, it’s game over – we’ll have Obamacare
Email your representative today and say “no” to the government takeover of health care: http://www.capwiz.com/afanet/issues/alert/?alertid=14778946
 
The current Democratic strategy on health care is to force the House of Representatives to pass the Senate bill as it is, with no changes. The President’s goal is for the House to pass the bill before he leaves on an international trip on March 18. In other words, time is short and the pressure is on.

Time is of the essence, and your representative’s vote will be historic, whether for good or for ill. He (or she) must hear from you immediately, as members of the House are getting enormous pressure from the White House to capitulate on this horrendous bill.

This pressure on the House has been coupled with a vague promise to address House criticisms (on abortion, for instance) in a second, separate bill, through a rarely used process (called “reconciliation”) that was originally created to deal only with budget and tax issues and was never designed as a vehicle for substantive public policy.

But if the House passes the Senate bill, you can forget all about reconciliation, for we will have Obamacare. The Senate bill will quickly move to the president’s desk and he will sign it before the ink is dry. And the government takeover of health care will be complete.

The Senate Democrats will have no incentive whatsoever to consider any House proposals. Why would they? The bill they wanted will be the law of the land.

The Senate version of health care is a spectacularly bad piece of legislation, and must be opposed for many, many reasons.

Here are just some of them:

  • The government will take over 1/6 of the American economy, and put government bureaucrats between you and your family’s health care providers.
  • It will cost $2.3 trillion over 10 years when fully implemented and dump a huge debt on the shoulders of our children and grandchildren (Senate Budget Committee).
  • It creates more than 110 new agencies and bureaucracies in the federal government.
  • It will cut $500 billion from Medicare and $170 billion from Medicare Advantage, resulting in rationed and inferior medical care for senior citizens.
  • It is “the most pro-abortion single piece of legislation that has ever come to the House floor for a vote” and contains numerous “federal pro-abortion mandates and federal subsidies for abortion” (Doug Johnson, National Right to Life Committee).
  • It will require taxpayer funding for abortion, and will even require purchasers of private plans to pay a monthly fee to pay for other people’s abortions.
  • It contains no conscience protections for health care providers who do not want to be coerced into performing abortions.

Take Action

We must kill this bill dead and drive a stake through its heart. Enter your ZIP Code and click “GO” (above or below) to email your representative urging them to say “no” to the government takeover of health care.

It is very important that you forward this alert to your friends and family members.

Thank you for caring enough to get involved. If you find our efforts worth supporting, would you consider making a small tax-deductible donation to help us continue?

Sincerely,

Tim Wildmon, President
American Family Association

Good News

 Please go to the website below and act on this!!!  This should Kill the Health Plan--I hope
  
 Finally, some good news to act on!!.
 
 Forward this as fast as you can!
 
 On Tuesday, the Senate health committee voted 12-11 in favor of a
 two-page amendment that would require all Members and their staffs to enroll
 in any new government-run health plan..
 It took me less than a minute to sign up to require our congressmen and
 senators to drink at the same trough!
 Three cheers for Congressman John Fleming of Louisiana !
 Congressman John Fleming ( Louisiana physician) has proposed an
 amendment that would require congressmen and senators to take the same
 healthcare plan they force on us (under proposed legislation they are
 curiously exempt).
 Congressman Fleming is encouraging people to go on his Website and Sign
 his petition (very simple – just email).
 I have just done just that at: http://fleming.house.gov/index.cfm?sectionid=55 
  
 Please urge as many people as you can to do the same! If Congress forces
 this on the American people, the Congress should have to accept the same
 level of health care for themselves and their families.
 To do otherwise is the height of hypocrisy!
 Please pass this on!!
