Stand Up Against Obamacare!

I realize that my blog does not reach very many people – just a handful of family and friends.  However, I felt I needed to write a post on the actions you can take to stand up against Obamacare, the proposed government take-over of the healthcare industry.  In this matter, Congress and the current Administration have gone too far.  I attended my local Tea Party against taxes on April 15th.  As a result, I get emails from TeaPartyPatriots.orgThey have made several suggestions regarding actions we can take to let our voice be heard against nationalized healthcare. 


I feel that if you aren’t going to take the steps necessary to stand up, to let your voice be heard, and to do what you can do, then you have no rights to complain about what happens.  We can make phone calls, send letters/emails, and let our elected officials know what we want in this matter.  They may listen, and they may not, but they can’t listen unless we are talking.


Here are some steps you can take to stand up against Obamacare this week, starting today!


1.  Tuesday:  Call the House Energy and Commerce Committee members.  Tell them not to pass the government run health care bill out of committee.  Our sources tell us that all the Republicans will be voting against the legislation already so you may choose to focus on the Democrats.  Record your answers and the number of calls you made. This will help Tea Party Patriots keep track of the progress we make. 


2.  Wednesday:  Call the Blue Dog DemocratsRecord your answers and the number of calls you made. 


3.  Wednesday:  Watch the Pajamas Media Health Care Town Hall.  I’m not really sure what this is about, but I’m going to try it on Wednesday.


4.  Thursday:  Call the Senate Finance Committee tell them our economy cannot afford another massive government spending bill.  (This link may not be active now abut it will be active before Thursday.) Record your answers and the number of calls you made. 


5.  Friday:  Call your Senators and your Representative; tell them as a constituent you are asking them to vote NO on government take over of Health Care. Record your answers and the number of calls you made.


6.  Friday:  Call the Blue Dog Democrats AGAIN.  Record your answers and the number of calls you made.


Let’s also remember to pray for our country, our freedoms, and for those in leadership positions as they vote on this critical issue.


Today I made 30 phone calls to the Democratic members of the Energy & Commerce Committee.  It took me less than 30 seconds per phone call.
