Obama's Deathcare: The Fight Continues

Harry Reid: No Health Care Vote Until Fall

The AP reported: Senate Democratic leaders on Thursday abandoned plans for a vote on health care before Congress' August recess, dealing a blow to President Barack Obama's ambitious timetable to revamp the nation's $2.4 trillion system of medical care. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., delivered the official word on what had been expected for weeks, saying, "It's better to have a product based on quality and thoughtfulness rather than try to jam something through."

Some of you may have been lulled into a false sense of security because of a brief delay in Nancy Pelosi’s House health care nationalization bill. Don’t be. Talks are back on and Pelosi aims to pass the bill next week or shortly after:

This is not the time to let up. The calls and faxes from patriots all across the nation are the only reason this bill has been slowed down in the first place. The Democratic opposition is rebuilding momentum now because our intensity is flagging. It’s time to get back on the ball immediately.

1) Sign this petition:

2) Call these seven Democrats:

Zack Space (D-Ohio): 1-202-225-6265
Reps. John Barrow (D-Ga.): 1-202-225-2823
Bart Gordon (D-Tenn.): 1-202-225-4231

Baron Hill (D-Ind.): 1-202-225-5315

Jim Matheson (D-Utah): 1-202-225-3011

Charlie Melancon (D-La.): 1-202-225-4031

Mike Ross (D-Ark): 1-202-225-3772

These are the so-called “blue dogs” on the Energy and Commerce Committee. With the right pressure they can stop this from even coming to a vote. Tell them you oppose government-run health care and that you know that’s exactly what the House bill is. Obviously these congressman aren't from our district, you might get some flack about calling outside your district, simply explain that this legislation effects everyone, and that you are more than capable of sending campaign contributions to opponents of the aforementioned representatives, regardless of district. Usually, though, you won't get any nonsense about that; the people who answer the phone are used to receiving calls from other states and other districts. Be polite, but be firm! NO NATIONALIZED HEALTH CARE! PERIOD! Hands off our health care. End of story. If someone tries to argue with you tell them not to bother; you know what they’re up to and you’re not buying it. If you get an answering machine that’s fine; just leave a message. If you get a busy signal, call back.

3) Call your own representatives. If you want to email and fax them in addition to calling them that’s even better, but BE SURE you call them. That’s the most immediate and effective way to go on record for or against any kind of legislation. Here’s the contact info for Congress: If you don’t know who your Congressman is you can find out by looking in the upper left hand corner where it says “Find Your Representative.” Just enter your zip code in the space provided; a link with your representative’s name will pop up. Follow the link and you should be able to find all of your representative’s contact info. Usually there will be either be a “contact” tab that will take you directly to your representative’s contact info or a “services” tab that opens up a drop-down menu that includes a “contact” link.

4) Lastly, SPREAD THE WORD! It’s high time people started to wake up. If there are people you know who don’t have this info and don’t know what’s going on, enlighten them. They must be awakened. If you have your own Facebook group, send the info out that way. The media does not get our message out, so it’s up to each of us to be the Paul Reveres of the 21st century.
