Beginning Thursday, January 20, members of the House will begin to identify provisions for a new health care bill.
We have added two new pages under Issues and Legislation – HOUSE/SENATE and Contact House/Contact Senate.  Please check the information that’s important to us all.  Link, please, and read.  Then respond by calling, faxing, emailing, and sending carrier pigeons off to selected Senators.  We have even provided a proposed list of comments and questions to include when you communicate with members of Congress.  Link Here for information about whom to contact.

We ask you to spread the word about the tricky work behind the scenes that Harry Reid is determined to get done when the Senate returns to DC.  We ask you to urge Senators to fight against Harry Reid’s low blow plans.

Let’s mount a serious campaign to support the Senators who are ready to fight Harry Reid’s end run in the Senate.  Look on the SENATE page for the contact information you will need.  We are organizing Citizen Cell meetings in homes, where you can gather with other members of Moore TEA Citizens and make cell calls – everything you need will be provided! 

If you are interested in being involved in the Citizen Cell push, call 910-783-8340.  We have names and info from the recent survey – and we have been in touch with all who volunteered for Citizen Cell calls.

    On Saturday I contacted my representatives via email to let them know I support their efforts in “repealing” the health care bill, as well as any efforts they put forward in reducing the amount they spend. I let them know that in no way would I vote for anyone other than their opponent if they proved to be unreliable in reducing our national deficit. I told them very clearly that as an American citizen I was ready to buckle down when needed in order to preserve our way of life for my son. And I let them know I would be calling on Monday to reiterate the message to them.

    I have gotten 14 of my family and friends to do the same in Arizona, Tennessee, Michigan, South Carolina and Texas. I also asked my family and friends to spread the word to others as I had to them.

    I hope you will do the same.

    I sent following fax to the 3 NC Congressman who did not vote for Pelosi for Minority Leader (Kissel, McIntyre and Shuler):

    January 15, 2011

    Dear Congressman

    I am writing to express my concern over our nation’s new health care law, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. As a fellow North Carolinian, I urge you to vote NAY on H.R. 2, scheduled for vote on Wednesday.

    Proponents of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act made many promises during the health care debate that are now ringing hollow. Seniors like me, for example, will have fewer choices, reduced access to care, smaller benefits and higher taxes. Despite initial reports to the contrary, deficits will increase faster under the new law. Small businesses will be punished for hiring new employees. To save money, business may cut insurance benefits for 35 million workers, pushing them onto public exchanges. Popular plans, such as Flex Saving Accounts and Health Saving Accounts, are in jeopardy. The list of unintended consequences is staggering, though not unexpected. In fact, more than 100 companies have been granted waivers, excusing them from complying with some onerous requirements that take effect this year. And the Federal government will ARBITRARILY pick other winners and losers in administering the vagaries of this law.

    Anything less than full repeal is an unstated endorsement of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. I look forward to your thoughtful response and seeing you listed as a NAY vote in the Roll Call. Thank you for your consideration.
