Call to Action! (Tea Party)

Greetings Fellow Patriots,

The past couple of weeks, we have put the pressure on the Senate Finance committee to let them know that we do not want the government to takeover health care. The time has come where the legislation will be voted on within the next 2 to 3 weeks and we need to turn up the heat!

One of our messages over the next week needs to be No Vote for Cloture. This means that if we can get one Senator of 60 not to vote for cloture, we can kill the bill! We have learned from one health care expert, there are 13 Senators that we have the possibility of turning and voting NO! Of these 13 Senators, two are up for reelection in 2010. The time has come for us to target and pressure these 13 Senators! Will you do your part to help convince them that this government takeover of health care is not good for the American people? You can do your part and stand shoulder to shoulder with other Patriots this week by applying pressure to these 13 Senators.

We have made this easy for you. We have broken the country into five regions and the 13 Senators into five groups. Each day, you call and email the group of Senators that is assigned to your region of the country. This way, all 13 Senators will have a constant barrage of calls and emails all week. We need to make sure they feel the pressure daily.

All of the contact information is listed below the chart. It has been highly recommended that we target the Senators' local district offices when calling, as the local offices are not used to getting pressure like the DC offices. When making your calls and sending your emails, please be sure to make four simple points:

No Government Takeover of Health Care
No Public Option
No Mandates
No Vote for Cloture

Also, please email the Chief of Staff for each Senator!

You mean we can write senators other than the two from our state?

After all I'm stuck with Schumer and Gilibrand! :-(
