Health Care House Calls

October 30, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

pfbig2When: Thursday, Nov. 5 , Noon- 1 p.m.

What: Congressional “House Calls” to McCaskill (any all state district offices – see below), Carnahan and Skelton.

What to do: Gather with friends outside the district office at noon; ask to speak with a staff member. Explain your concerns about the health care proposals under consideration and deliver your letters, stories, petitions, etc.

What to bring: Bring your sign, your personal story of why you don’t want a Washington takeover of health care, and a hand-written letter for your member of Congress. Patients First, a project of AFP, will have an “Rx for Real Reform” prescription available for download from our Web sites, www.JoinPatientsFirst.com and www.americansforprosperity.org. This will be a one-pager expressing the type of real reforms we’d like to see, as well as some things to vote NO on. You’re making a “House Call” — better bring the right prescription! Also, bring your camera and send us your pictures — we’d love to post them.

As the health care debate has drawn on, we’ve heard from our contacts on Capitol Hill that calls and visits to the district offices make a big impact. One congressman even admitted that his D.C. staff are “calloused” and said the district offices are a better way to get a message through to the members.

So we’re marshalling an effort to turn folks out to the district offices of senators and congressmen on November 5. As you know, Nancy Pelosi revealed the latest proposal for government controlled health care yesterday. It is more of the same, bad medicine for America and we must do all we can to stop it! She plans to vote it out of the House on November 11. The Senate plans to begin “work” in earnest in the next week or so also. Combine this with the fact that we’ll be fresh off an election cycle which hopefully sends a loud message two Washington, many people will be politically aware and attuned to what is happening if they are not already.
