Call, March & Honk Against Healthcare Takeover

Today: Call, March & Honk Against Healthcare Takeover

Patients and physicians are descending on the US Capitol Tuesday to let Congress know that they do not want the massive government-run plan that Pelosi, Pres. Obama, and Reid are trying to force through this week.  For more information visit http://www.americangrassrootscoalition.org/ and http://www.doctorsandpatients.org .

If you cannot be in DC Tuesday, there are events in your area to express your displeasure with the bill.  Americans for Prosperity are asking citizens across the country to "Honk No" Tuesday at Noon.   Details and a printable sign to hang from your car window are at http://honkno.com/about/ . 

More events around the U.S. Tuesday and the rest of the week can be found at http://www.teapartypatriots.org/Today.aspx?date=3/16/2010 .

Also please keep the pressure on Congress with your phone calls and faxes.  Below are four Congressmen who are the subject of intense lobbying by Nancy Pelosi and her "whip" James Clyburn (D-S.C.) to vote for their unconstitutional healthcare schemes.  Tell them to "vote NO" and to stand up to the Speaker's hardball tactics for the sake of their constituents and the rest of America.  

Tell them, as AAPS President George Watson, D.O. explained in his editorial published Monday, "that we need simple, comprehensible, Constitutional legislation" not the "complex, incomprehensible, unconstitutional bills" that violate our rights.  

A frequently updated list of the House democrats' positions on the healthcare "reform" bill is available at The Hill website .  As of 12:01am EDT Tuesday morning The Hill is reporting that 37 Democrats are a "firm no, leaning no, or likely no."  If every member votes and all GOP lawmakers vote no, the maximum number of Democratic defections to pass a bill is 37, which would result in a 216-215 tally.  Help get the number of Democrat "No" votes to 38!

So if you ever had any doubts about Obamacare health initiative, take the time to watch this video, then decide if you really want to be a part of this.
