A vote on the House version of the “stimulus package” is expected today, Wednesday, January 28.
OK, so we know it will pass. But that doesn’t mean we have to stay silent. We should make an effort to let our representatives in D.C. know that not ALL Americans are uniformed, brain dead, or have succumbed completely to the Obama/Democratic Kool-Aid.
It’s a matter of self-respect. If we don’t make the call, we are sending them a message, whether we like it or not. We’re telling Washington that we don’t care. But we do! At the very least, we can start going on the record and let the people in D.C. know that SOMEONE is watching them!
Late yesterday afternoon I called Rep. Harry Teague who represents New Mexico CD-2. I informed the woman on the other end of the line that I was an “ex-Democrat” and that I did not want Teague to vote in favor of a pork-laden, “smoke and mirrors” bill which didn’t help ME, but seemed to help the likes of ACORN. I told her lack of oversight of how the money would be spent was the most irresponsible thing I had seen from the Democratic Party in years and that coming after the corruption of the primaries, made me glad I was an “ex-Democrat.” I told her that I had seen a lot, but, of course, that meant I was older and “unwanted”…but that I still had a right to comment. I told her that in the long run this would really hurt the Democratic Party.
It was very easy to do. Because calling was THE RIGHT THING TO DO!
Here are a couple of toll-free numbers you can use:
I used the AMA’s line…it’s a simple menu that automatically comes up with the name of your representative and connects you. It might be a faster line to use if the Capitol switchboard is busy.
For more information on what’s in this huge bill, you can check the links included in this post from about a week ago:
Scroll down to about the middle of the piece and you’ll see direct links to the drafts of the House bill.
From The Real Barack Obama: More on the money earmarked for ACORN and the “ $4.19 billion for “neighborhood stabilization activities.” (It’s the 3rd item down in the post.)
UPDATE 1 (11 AM MT)
Hat tip to Tennessee Guerilla Women….Obama Axes Birth Contol Funds to Please Republicans
So the F*cking SOB has begun demonstating his love and respect for women by trading our birth control for $$$$$$$$$$$$$$. Obama whores us again!!! And won’t this hurt POOR women the most???
If I hear one complaint against upfront Sarah Palin, who has NEVER overturned a bill that secures the rights of women and gays, I will put another HEX on NARAL, NOW, Ms. Magazine, and Planned Parenthood.
PS…I just called Rep. Teague’s office, told them what I thought about Obama’s misogyny and Teague not being worth 2 cents…and told the woman that I didn’t know how she could sit in that office with this crap going on and that women should rise up…including HER!
