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.
