I got a lovely email from Bambi, and just had to share it with you (all bolding is mine):
Denise --The nerve of these people! Americans all over the country are trying to let their supposed representatives know they do not want this monstrosity of a death care bill, and not only do the libs denigrate them and claim they are the puppets of the insurance companies and "organized mobs", they put forth their very own "organized counter attack" so the congresscritters don't get confused. They are running scared, people. Get out there and make sure you are heard. Bambi is right; this very well could be the moment this movement was built for. It all started with a tea party, now they're beating people up for expressing their frustration with congress. We cannot give in now, people. We have to get our country back.
All throughout August, our members of Congress are back in town. Insurance companies and partisan attack groups are stirring up fear with false rumors about the President's plan, and it's extremely important that folks like you speak up now.
So we've cooked up an easy, powerful way for you to make a big impression: Office Visits for Health Reform.
All this week, OFA members like you will be stopping by local congressional offices to show our support for insurance reform. You can have a quick conversation with the local staff, tell your personal story, or even just drop off a customized flyer and say that reform matters to you.
We'll provide everything you need: the address, phone number, and open hours for the office, information about how the health care crisis affects your state for you to drop off (with the option of adding your personal story), and a step-by-step guide for your visit.
According to our records, you live near Sen. Claire McCaskill's office in Springfield, MO.
Sign up now to visit Sen. Claire McCaskill's office in Springfield this week.

As you've probably seen in the news, special interest attack groups are stirring up partisan mobs with lies about health reform, and it's getting ugly. Across the country, members of Congress who support reform are being shouted down, physically assaulted, hung in effigy, and receiving death threats. We can't let extremists hijack this debate, or confuse Congress about where the people stand.
Office Visits for Health Reform are our chance to show that the vast majority of American voters know that the cost of inaction is too high to bear, and strongly support passing health reform in 2009.
Don't worry if you've never done anything like this before. The congressional staff is there to listen, and your opinion as a constituent matters a lot. And if you bring a friend, you'll have more fun and make an even greater impact.

Wherever you live, these visits matter: Many representatives are pushing hard toward reform, and they are taking a lot of heat from special interests. They deserve our thanks and need our support to continue the fight. But those who are still putting insurance companies and partisan point-scoring ahead of their constituents must know that voters are watching -- and that we expect better.
Earlier this week, the President wrote that "this is the moment our movement was built for" and asked us all to commit to join at least one event this month. This is the way to answer that call, and rise to the challenge of this moment together.
Thank you for going the extra mile when it matters the most,
Organizing for America
When problem solving, I always ask what is the problem before I try to find an answer. If it is that there are people uninsured, send the States money so they can insure them with their version of Medicade and move on smartly. I don't want the Federal Government building another bureaucracy to screw with the health Care System. Simple answer for a complicated question but No, most of us don't want health care reform right now.Post a Comment
