The Health Care Fight is the House: Please, Please, Please Call Them!

Posted on 03/04/2010 7:44:46 AM PST by catnipman

Folks, despite all the rhetoric about reconciliation, the real fight is to get the House to pass the Senate bill, word for word, exactly like it came from the Senate. Until then, there can be no "reconcilliation" vote in the Senate, and furthermore, only the Senate bill, word for word, can be voted on. All the rhetoric about changes to the bill, slimmed down bill, incorporation of Republican ideas is simply nonsense.

Both Senator Jim DeMint and Senator Lindsey Graham explained this quite nicely on FNC last night.

We must pressure the House members and keep the pressure on.

I just called Betsy Markey's office in D.C. and unloaded. I was not polite. Time for politeness is long past. My statement was:

"I'm just a guy. I have no special interest. I'm not rich. But I'm p!ssed the f**k off<.big> and I have a $5,000.00 check sitting here waiting to go to her opponent if she votes for the Senate bill. And there's lots more like me. If she wants to have any chance whatsoever of being re-elected, she better not reverse her vote and vote for the Senate bill!

These are ten House members that voted no on the House health care takeover bill and whom Obama is trying to arm-twist in voting for the Senate bill in the House.n Please call them and put the fear of God into these people!

Toll free numbers to the capital switchboard:

877-762-8762, 866-338-1015, 866-220-0044, 877-851-6437, 877-210-5351. Note: These numbers may not be still be directed to the capital switchboard as they are paid for by various groups who may no longer use them to access the switchboard but it can't hurt to try.

Once it passes the House it will be sent to the President to be signed into law- forget the Senate they already passed the bill it just needs the House’s ok.. The battle is the House. Time to take it to the streets again- Tea Parties.

Thanks for posting. The message that the battleground is in the House and that all of this reconciliation business is just a red herring needs to be broadcast widely here on FR. The MSM is, at this point, successfully confusing the electorate into worrying about the Senate, reconciliation, the President's Plan etc. The House is where the action is.

Everyone should take a look at my early FR thread on this subject. It will clear up a lot of the confusion.

Forget Reconciliation, Why the Real Fight Is In the House

Can’t get through to Boyds office but called the local office (850) 561-3979. He said he is looking for 4 criteria in order to vote yes. Can’t remember what they are. One is that it doesn’t add to deficit and another is affordable coverage for all. Abortion isn’t an issue with him.

“One is that it doesn’t add to deficit “

Well, the Democrats are lying if they say it doesnt add to the deficit. They made it ‘neutral’ by having taxes for for 10 years and the benefit start 4 years later. IN the following 10 years it would be a huge burden on the deficit and debt, not to mention the added taxes.

Betsy Markey is a hopeless lefty too. But she won in a conservative district and has to walk a tightrope if she has any chance at all of being re-elected. Unfortunately, she may conclude she’s unlikely to be re-elected under any circumstance and simply decide to commit political suicide

With handy, clickable contact information

Here's the official Code Red List for the selected HOUSE DEMOCRATS THAT NEED TO BE PUSHED HARDEST.

The clickable links go to their online Message System. You can use the same City, State, Zip, and Area Codes as one of their local district offices (usually listed on the same page) with any street address you want --- you're using local information to get through their spam filter. For Zip+4, use any 4 digits added onto the selected Zip Code.

Write a brief, punchy letter in your Word Program, and cut-and-paste it to one congresscritter after another from the CODE RED LIST.

It is easy to do 15 or 20 of them in an hour.

Go get ‘em.

Made my calls. Got thru to all but 3 of them.

Fox nitely news had a short report about a Tea Party “wave” being put together to protest the vote.

Anyone know anything about it?
