Tell Mary Landrieu to Vote "NO" on Cloture

The full Senate will be voting on the healthcare reform bill in the next 2 to 3 weeks. We have a unique opportunity in Louisiana to help defeat this bill. One tactic that may be used by the left is a procedure known as 'cloture". This procedure would end debate on the healthcare bill and rob the American people of a chance to read it. Senator Mary Landrieu is one of 13 key Senators that can be pressured in to voting no to the use of cloture. We only need ONE democrat Senator out of 60 to defeat the Cloture procedure so contact Mary Landrieu today and tell her to vote "NO" on using the cloture procedure.

Beat the Bond: Metro Council to Hold Special Meeting

The Baton Rouge Metro Council has formally announced that a special meeting on removing the bond proposal from the November ballot will be held on October 12 @ 2:00pm in the Metro Council Chambers.

Removing the proposal from the ballot now will save our state approximately $480,000!

Also, continue to email the metro council and let them know that you would like them to remove the proposal from the ballot: metrocouncil@brgov.com

Stopping State Contracts to ACORN

Having trouble reading this email? Click here to view it on your browser.

Governor  Bobby Jindal

Dear Friends,

This past week we reiterated our commitment to protecting Louisiana taxpayers' hard-earned dollars by issuing an executive order preventing the state from funding or entering into contracts that benefit the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN).  The Executive Order will prevent any state departments, agencies, offices, boards, and officers from entering future contracts with ACORN, as well as force those entities to immediately eliminate funding for the organization, and for state agencies to report any such contracts to my executive council's office. 

Thus far, our search through current state records has led to, as reported by the Alexandria Town Talk, the "terminat[ion] financing of two social services contracts with the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now." The actions carried out by ACORN have shown us all that Louisiana taxpayer dollars should not be used to assist the organization in anyway, and we will continue to protect your hard earned tax dollars as we move forward.

We also welcomed the reopening of Northwest Pipe Company's facility in Bossier City last week, which has been idle for three years. Once the plant is fully operational, it will bring up to 120 new jobs to our state that average $39,000 annually.
As the Shreveport Times reported, the company's officials were ""were pleasantly surprised how strong the economy was here, much better than any of the other locations where they operate facilities." This is yet another step forward in creating a world-class economy right here in Louisiana, and is a great example of how our state continues to outpace both economies around the south and the nation as a whole.
We brought the Louisiana Working Tour to Lutcher, Destrehan, Simpson, and Patterson last week to spread the word of our economic success throughout the state.  As the Leesville Daily Leader wrote, "Despite the national economic downturn, Louisiana's economy was recently rated the best in the south," and I am proud to lead the hardworking men and women of our state as we strengthen our economy.
We also awarded 423 of our state's veterans with the Louisiana Veterans' Honor Medal in Mansfield, Dodson, and Rayne. As I said in the Shreveport Times, "Their sacrifice and willingness to stand in harm's way is why we honor them with these medals," and I look forward to presenting these symbols of our appreciation to more of our veterans in the coming weeks.

David Vitter: update 9 29 09



This month, we recognized  the fourth anniversary of Hurricane Rita's impact on Louisiana.  I also  made a move to reduce the power of the president's "czars" and to increase our  gas and energy exploration to help reduce costs and create new jobs.

Below you can read about  these and other issues that I'm working on, such as ensuring that your tax  dollars don't go to ACORN.

Photo Spotlight

Here I am pictured with representatives of the Louisiana Green Building Council when they came by my DC office to talk about the efforts and goals of their organization. 

This past week, we paused  to remember the impact of Hurricane Rita on southwest Louisiana.  Rita's  significant impact on our state is often overlooked by the devastation of  Hurricane Katrina but this event affected the lives of hundreds of thousands of  our friends and neighbors.  On the fourth anniversary of Rita's impact, I  wanted to remember this event and recognize the spirit and determination of  southwest Louisianians as they continue the recovery process even today.   Read the text of my full statement here.

This month, I filed an  amendment that would limit the power of the president's "czars" to make and  implement policy.  These advisors now number somewhere in the 20s, and  they wield significant power over domestic programs and government agencies  despite their not being approved by the Senate like members of the president's  cabinet.  You can read more about this amendment here.

Last year, the  prohibitions on OCS drilling expired, allowing us to move ahead with a more  sensible approach to gas and energy exploration that would allow us to greatly  reduce costs on American families.  But now we are seeing delays from the  Obama Administration that would stall that progress we made.  That's why I  filed an amendment to the Interior-Environment appropriations bill that would  prevent funds from being used to delay the implementation of an expanding  drilling program that would boost our economy and increase our gas and energy  supplies. You can learn more about the amendment here at my website.

Over the past year, we've  all seen stories about the voter fraud and other allegations against the  activist group ACORN.  Last week the U.S. Senate voted to block future  taxpayer dollars from being awarded to ACORN.  But this month, it came to  my attention that ACORN had been awarded a $1 million grant from a program that  was designed to assist firefighters and fire departments.  This is simply  unacceptable, and I wrote a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Janet  Napolitano asking her to rescind this grant and see that this money goes to  those fire departments in the need of most assistance.  To learn more  about this situation, click here.

Audit the Fed Hearing Tomorrow! Your help needed now!

September 24, 2009

Dear Friend of Liberty,

This Friday, the House Financial Services Committee will meet at 9 am eastern to hold a hearing on Congressman Paul's Audit the Fed bill, HR 1207.

We have come a long way in this historic effort, but your action is needed now more than ever.

Click here to find the names of the representatives on the Financial Services Committee and to get their contact information.  Even if they do not represent your district, be sure to call as many of them as you can anyway, as their work on the Committee greatly impacts every one of us.

Urge them to pass the Audit the Fed bill to the floor on its own merits and not as part of an overall package that would strengthen the Federal Reserve and further damage our economy.  Transparency in our monetary system is too important to be smothered in yet another Washington regulatory bill.

If your representative is not on the Committee, please contact him as well and tell him you want to know what the Fed has done with your money.  Demand a standalone vote on Audit the Fed and that he cosponsor HR 1207 if he has not yet done so.

The hearing will be streamed live on the Committee's website.

This hearing would not have taken place if not for all of your hard work in calling, writing, faxing, and petitioning Congress to support HR 1207 and S 604, its Senate companion.

It's incredible to see all the support we have amassed in this historic effort, but if we want to achieve a complete victory, we must now push harder than ever and turn the heat up!

Your call could have a critical impact on your representative's decision.  Contact them immediately!

In Liberty,

John Tate

P.S. C4L and its members are already having a huge impact on the political landscape, as evidenced by this historic hearing.  Please donate today to help us finish this fight to Audit the Fed and continue to beat back the forces of big government.

Audit the Fed Will Get Hearing in House Committee!

September 9, 2009

Dear Friend of Liberty,

Your hard work in this historic movement to Audit the Fed continues to pay off!

Thanks to the thousands of Campaign for Liberty members who have tirelessly dedicated themselves to spreading the word, gathering petitions, and putting continuous pressure on Congress by calling, writing, and faxing, Congressman Ron Paul informed C4L today that House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank has officially agreed to hold hearings on HR 1207! The hearings are tentatively scheduled for Friday, September 25 at 9:00 am.

Your efforts have resulted in Washington's most secretive institution having to defend itself before the media, the American people, and now at a House hearing specifically focused on transparency.

This exciting victory is only one more achievement in a battle that we must see through until the end.

Contact your representative and senators and urge them to cosponsor HR 1207/S 604 if they have not yet done so. If they have already signed on, tell them it is imperative that Audit the Fed receive a standalone, up or down vote on its own merits. Full transparency in our nation's monetary system is too important to be a minor footnote in yet another massive Washington bill, and C4L will vigorously oppose any attempts to include HR 1207 in a regulatory reform package that increases the Fed's power over our economy and lives.

Less than a year ago, a thorough audit of the Federal Reserve wasn't on anyone's radar. Now, we have the support of seventy five percent of the American people, almost two thirds of the House of Representatives, nearly a quarter of the Senate, and an official hearing before the House Financial Services Committee!

There will be more exciting information to follow soon, but I wanted you to know right away.  Now is the time to turn the heat up even more.

Together, we will finish this fight!

In Liberty,

John Tate

Great Victory for conservatives - CNN Fires Roesgen

We have some great victories to pass along to our fellow conservatives - further evidence that your efforts and activism are paying off!

1st:  CNN is dumping their liberal, anti-Tea Party correspondent, Susan Roesgen.  Roesgen was the reporter who decided to harass those who attended the April 15th Tea Party in Chicago, IL, instead of serving as an unbiased journalist (yes, we know -- a bit of an oxymoron there).   In response, we here at the Our Country Deserves Better Committee launched an online grass roots effort that flooded CNN's offices with tens of thousands of phone calls and emails.  And CNN felt the heat - first sending Roesgen on leave for a suddenly scheduled vacation, and now deciding to part ways with Roesgen altogether.

2nd: Polls show a further drop in support for the Barack Obama/Nancy Pelosi socialistic health care plan.  We here at the Our Country Deserves Better Committee are working on a new TV ad that we will unveil this week that will push further to defeat this awful, big-government montrosity.  If you want to help us fight back to defeat Obamacare, please make a donation to our TV ad campaign by - CLICKING HERE.

3rd: Our TV ad, "It's Not Iran, It's Obama's Administration" continues to attract attention from across the nation.  More than 227,000 people have watched the ad online at YouTube alone in addition to the broadcasts of the ad so far!

4th: And that's just the beginning.  In about 40 days we will launch the "Tea Party Express" that will take the tea party movement to the next level - bringing real change to government as we take back our country from the far Left, tax-spend-bailout liberals who currently control Congress and the White House.  Be sure to sign up and get involved for this huge national effort at: http://www.TeaPartyExpress.org



We unveil our new TV ad campaign calling for the defeat of the masive, big-government socialistic health care program being advanced by Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi.

You can support our ad campaign against Obamacare by making a contribution online - CLICK HERE to DONATE.

Please donate as much as you can afford.  Whether it's a generous contribution of $100, $250, $500, $1,000 or more - or a more modest contribution of $25 or $50.  The maximum contribution allowed by law is $5,000 per individual.  Donate online - CLICK HERE.

URGENT ALERT: Hate Crimes Bill up for Vote Tomorrow (7/16) in US Senate!

 This is going to be voted on by the Senate tomorrow (http://www.lifesitenews.com/ldn/2009/jul/09071505.html.

Take a moment to call and email your Senators and watch the status of the bill (and others) at http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-s909/show.

Reid—under the thumb of Obama and Holder—is attaching the bill to an unrelated defense bill, in order to force Senators to vote for it if they want to protect our troops. He is allowing no amendments. And he is calling for cloture to rush the bill through before any debate can take place. The Obama "hate crimes" bill is one of the most dangerously bigoted pieces of class warfare legislation ever to come before Congress.  We need to stop it now. So, call your Senators now at 202-225-3121 and tell them to vote NO to the Obama's bigoted attempt to make racial division the law of our land!

From AFA- The Hate Crimes legislation would authorize the Department of Justice to investigate and prosecute certain bias-motivated crimes based on the victim's actual or perceived sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, or disability. Even more troubling is that S.909 could create special protections for pedophiles. Democrats voted down an amendment to the bill that would have excluded pedophilia and other "sexual orientations" from the definition of "sexual orientation."  For years, AFA and other pro-family groups have issued warnings about federal Hate Crimes legislation. The reality is that the purpose of this bill is to silence those who speak out against homosexuality. If the legislation passes, pastors could be prosecuted under the federal inducement statute for preaching the biblical view of homosexuality. For example, a person could commit an act of violence against a homosexual individual and blame it on the pastor's sermon. Similar laws have been used to prosecute religious speech in the U.S. at the state level and abroad.

Senator Leahy Announces Intent To Introduce Hate Crimes Amendment To DOD Authorization Bill – And that bill is scheduled for a Senate floor vote Wednesday, July 15 2009 – that's TODAY! 


Read this press release now:  http://leahy.senate.gov/press/200907/071309b.html


Here's the Senate floor schedule (see right sidebar referencing S.1390 "National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2010"):  http://www.senate.gov/


We can't confirm the amendment anywhere on the bill… but Senator Leahy's intent is clear.  Even liberal websites are all abuzz about getting this passed quickly and quietly, see  here (caution, very liberal website):  http://www.dailykos.com/storyonly/2009/7/14/753383/-Take-90-Seconds-and-FIGHT-HATE-NOW.-  


Even though CCM can't confirm this as an official amendment, we must take no chances and act now to stop Hate Crimes legislation from passing…


1)      Stop what you're doing… and email, phone and/or fax all Senators now.  Tell them NO Hate Crimes Legislation!

2)      Go here to find your US Senate contact information:  http://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm

3)      Forward this alert to all your friends, family, neighbors and encourage them to do likewise.. now!


As a reminder, here is some summary information about the Hate Crimes bill, compiled from Janet Porter of WorldNet Daily:

-          It criminalizes speech against groups already identified.

-          It adds sexual orientation to the list.

-          Pastors could be charged with inciting a hate crime for sermon content.

-          Individuals could be charged with inciting a hate crime for resisting the actions or advances of a homosexual/lesbian.

-          It would criminalize Christianity by turning those who disagree with homosexual agenda into felons.

-          It would elevate pedophiles as a special protected class, since the term "sexual orientation"  includes them in the American Psychiatric Association's definition of various sexual orientations.

-          Denies freedom of speech and constitutes thought control as we're denied the right to express opinions without risking fines or arrest.

-          Would deny us 14th Amendment right of equal protection under the law.

-          Would identify a special "preferred" class of victim with more rights than the average citizen would have as victim of similar crime.

-          Federal funds would be proffered to local law enforcement encouraging them to prosecute crimes against this preferred class.


SAMPLE LETTER – Use the following letter as a template and personalize it, or write your own.




Dear Senator: 


Vote NO on any Hate Crimes Legislation.

(1) Hate Crimes legislation is unconstitutional. The 14th Amendment requires that all citizens be given equal treatment under the law. Hate crimes laws create special classes of victims and do not treat all victims fairly.

(2) Hate Crimes legislation could ultimately lead to prosecution for thoughts and restrictions on free speech and religious liberty. Although it prosecutes only "acts of violence" and does not prosecute expressions or opinions, it opens the door to examining the thoughts of not only a criminal, but everyone with whom he may have come into contact. This bill could be used to advance the politically correct agenda by providing greater protections for certain classes of people. Future legislation could expand these protections and place restrictions on religious liberty and free speech.

(3) Hate Crimes are unnecessary.  Many states already have a hate crimes law and there is no evidence that the states are failing to prosecute hate crimes. States which do not have hate crimes laws still prosecute the crimes under existing criminal laws. A federal hate crimes bill would only increase the control and scope of the federal government.

(4) All crimes are hate crimes! 

Vote NO on any and all Hate Crimes legislation!

Huge Tax Increase Vote Tomorrow

Dear Stacy,

This week a late night deal was struck on the national energy tax. Clearly, Speaker Pelosi is running a machine, and was able to strong-arm a number of moderate Democrats to stand against their own districts and support this energy tax. Now, Speaker Pelosi is trying desperately to get a vote by tomorrow.

This national energy tax would possibly be the largest tax increase in American history, cause gas and electricity prices to skyrocket*, and add to our already spiraling federal deficit. We cannot afford this.

You can help in two ways right now that will have a big impact:

  1. Make a small contribution of $15 to keep our TV ad on the air. Your contribution will also be used to run newspaper ads in key districts to inform voters about this bill.
  2. Call your member of Congress now, and urge a vote against the national energy tax, H.R. 2454. Nancy Pelosi is desperately trying to corral as many Democrats as possible to vote with her, even though many of them have serious reservations. Your call right now can change the game.

If you're wondering what to tell them, here are some points* to bring up. The energy tax would:

  1. Reduce aggregate gross domestic product (GDP) by $9.6 trillion
  2. Destroy an average of 1-3 million jobs, every year
  3. Raise electricity rates 90 percent after adjusting for inflation
  4. Raise inflation-adjusted gasoline prices by 74 percent
  5. Raise residential natural gas prices by 55 percent
  6. Raise an average family's annual energy bill by $1,500 annually
  7. Increase the federal debt by 26 percent, which is $29,150 per person
Remember, we only have until tomorrow. Thanks for what you're doing.

ABC News Airing Day-long ObamaCare Infomercial

From the Desk of:
David Martin, Executive Vice President

Brent Bozell Message to the MRC Action Team Regarding ABC's ObamaCare Infomercial

President Obama is trying to put our nation on the fast track to socialized health care, and on June 24, the ABC network will help him sell this bill of goods to the American people.

Next Wednesday, ABC News will transform the White House into their newsroom for what has been described as an unabashed infomercial promoting the Democrat agenda—more specifically, government-run health care.

++ ABC News Emphatically Rejects Opposing Views

ABC News has abandoned all pretense of journalistic integrity in its bid to be the administration's official salesman for ObamaCare. ABC flatly rejected Republican National Committee Chief of Staff Ken McKay's request to add opposition views to ensure all sides of the health care debate were represented in the "town hall" forum.

Not only that, ABC News Vice President Kerry Smith responded by saying, "ABC News alone will select those who will be in the audience asking questions of the President."

As if that wasn't enough, ABC then rejected an ad from a conservative group trying to counter the liberal health care agenda. They clearly are not interested in a balanced presentation on this subject.

Void of opposing views, this "news special" becomes nothing more than an extended infomercial designed to scare and manipulate the American people into supporting a trillion-dollar government takeover of the highest quality health care system in the world!

++ Hold ABC News Accountable

stacy, health care is an issue of life and death. If you don't want politicians and faceless bureaucrats making your personal health care decisions – which medical procedures you need, which treatments are affordable, which medications you can have – then stand with us and demand the media present a balanced view on how to reform health care.

That's why we are asking MRC Action team members to do two things TODAY. First, take a moment right now to call ABC News executives and demand balance in the health care debate. Ask them why they won't allow the conservative point of view on this show.

Second, click here to submit questions to be asked at this "town hall" on Wednesday – questions the liberal media aren't asking. Questions like:

· How much will your plan cost?

· How will it be paid for?

· Can you name one example of the government taking over an industry and the costs falling as a result?

Click here to hear MRC founder Brent Bozell's exclusive message to the MRC Action team explaining why we all need to act NOW to stop what he calls "one of the worst examples I've seen in all my years of observing media bias."

Here is your contact information:

David Westin
President, ABC News
(212) 456-6200

Anne Sweeney
President, ABC-Disney Television Group
(818) 569-7700

++ Alert your Friends and Family

A firestorm of protest can bring about quick change. That's why after taking action, we're asking you to forward this update to 25-30 friends and family members. Let them know what is happening, and how they can play a pivotal role by calling as well.

President Obama has already taken over the banks, and General Motors … now he's using ABC television to ram his socialist health care plan down our throats unabated. Make your calls, and forward this important message today!

Thank you in advance for taking action with the MRC.

This is an incredible victory for the freedom movement, but our work to Audit the Fed is only just beginning! Now we must concentrate on seeing the bill through the committee process and getting it to the House floor for a vote.

With your continued support, we will do just that. Together, we will restore transparency to our nation's monetary system.

Thank you for all you do for the cause of liberty!

In Liberty,

John Tate

Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day! Thank you to those who served/serve our great country & help make the freedoms we have possible. Without you we would be just like any other country:less individual freedom, more government control, less individual prosperity, more fear. Out of respect for your service we should exercise & stand up for our constitutional rights so we will always remain the land of the Free & the home of the Brave.

Baton Rouge Tea Party!

We went to the Baton Rouge Tea Party! It was a great event!

There were close to 800 Tea Parties across the nation!!

Thousands of people who are FED up and have had ENOUGH!

We are no longer the SILENT majority!

If you are not fed up... you are not paying attention!

Here are some suggestions I have found by looking at other tea party sites:

1.  Don't tax me bro.

2.  Obama lied the economy died.

3. Government by the people is now government vs. the people.

4. Stimulus, the audacity of dopes.

5.  I owe WHAT???

6. (For children)  Sorry daddy, I don't have 1 trillion dollars to loan you.

7. Honk if you are paying my mortgage.

8. Vote you out of office?  Yes we can.

9. You cant spend your way out of debt.

10. Don't tread on me flag.

11. Who is John Galt?

12. (For children) Obama, stop stealing from my piggy bank.

13. Restore the republic.

14. Repeal the pork or retire.

15. Next time read the bill.

16. Party like it's 1773.

17. Legalize capitalism.

18. Socialism is not an American value.

19. (For college students) Full time student, two part time jobs, paying my own way.

20. (For children) When I grow up I want to be free.

21. Shrugging.

22. "I swear by my life and my love of it that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask him to live for mine." John Galt.

Washington - GET OFF MY BACK AND OUT OF MY POCKET!  I'm thinking of doing a list of NO's on the front ...still tweaking it, but this gives you some ideas...

NO bailouts - stop rewarding failure with OUR MONEY
NO pork - again, it's OUR MONEY
NO government controlled healthcare
NO government take-over of private companies
NO creating trillions of $ out of thin air
NO higher taxes
NO funding special interest groups
NO voting on bills without reading them first
NO to leaving our grandchildren trillions in debt 

We're taking names, and you can bet WE VOTE!

On April 15, be part of the Taxed Enough Already (TEA) party rally in your community

On the day you pay your taxes, Wednesday, April 15, join others across the country and in your hometown who will be participating in TAX Day TEA party rallies in front of their city halls.  The  TAX Day TEA party rally will begin at 12 noon. See this video - the momentum is growing! 

Are you fed up with a Congress and a president who:

  • vote for a $500 billion tax bill without even reading it? 
  • are spending trillions of borrowed dollars, leaving a debt our great-grandchildren will be paying?
  • consistently give special interest groups billions of dollars in earmarks to help get themselves re-elected?
  • want to take your wealth and redistribute it to others?
  • punish those who practice responsible financial behavior and reward those who do not?
  • admit to using the financial hurt of millions as an opportunity to push their political agenda?
  • run up trillions of dollars of debt and then sell that debt to countries such as China?
  • want government controlled health care?
  • want to take away the right to vote with a secret ballot in union elections?
  • refuse to stop the flow of millions of illegal immigrants into our country?
  • appoint a defender of child pornography to the Number 2 position in the Justice Department?
  • want to force doctors and other medical workers to perform abortions against their will?
  • want to impose a carbon tax on your electricity, gas and home heating fuels?
  • want to reduce your tax deductibility for charitable gifts?
  • take money from your family budget to pay for their federal budget?

If so, participate in the TAX Day TEA party rally, the Taxed Enough Already (TEA) party.

Bring your cell phone and call Congress and the president while attending the  TAX Day TEA party rally (Representative and Senators, 202-224-3121; President, 202-456-1414). Tell Every American about this effort by forwarding this invitation to your friends.  Together we can make a difference.

the insanity coming out of D.C. refuses to cease. We HAVE to put an end to it. We HAVE to be heard!!!!!!

You MUST call your Senators about the Cap & Trade bill that is in Congress right now. The ramifications of this bill on Americans and Businesses will overwhelmingly tax the hell out of us in more ways than one:

1. Our electric bills will rise to costs between $700 - $3,100 per year.

2. Businesses will see an even bigger rise in their electric bills.

3. When businesses see a bigger electric bill that cost will be added into the price of all consumer goods that we purchase. EVERYTHING WE BUY will be up to twice as expensive.

4. This could potentially cause job losses as businesses will have to cut somewhere and they won't be able to cut these costs – think about factories, machine shops, the very automakers that we now own.

5. College tuition will go up even more because their electric bills will double also.

6. Public schools will have to pay more in electricity, which means higher taxes at a state level.

7. Cable companies will have to pay more – and we will pay the costs.

8. Grocery stores will be paying more in electricity which means WE will be paying even more for food.

9. Rents will go up if electricity is included. People are already having a hard times paying their rent – what will happen when their rent is increased even more?

10. Phone companies, restaurants, the Post Office, local government, pet stores, convenience stores, museums, ballparks… it affects EVERY SINGLE PERSON AND BUSINESS IN THIS COUNTRY!

The above doesn't even include the increase in gas prices which will add ANOTHER whammy of taxes that will be paid directly by consumers and then again indirectly by businesses passing on the costs to consumer goods.

WE ARE THE ONLY COUNTRY TRYING TO SAVE THE 'ATMOSPHERE'. No other countries are on board with this – how much of the atmosphere are WE alone really going to save????

Americans are being punished for an ideology that has not yet been proven. We are already in dire straights as a country – millions of people losing their jobs, not being able to pay their mortgages, their rent, provide food for their families and Obama wants to add THIS TAX BURDEN TO US???

This affects ALL AMERICANS, not just tax payers. The single Mom who can barely make ends meet for her family. The college kids who are already over stretched with student loans. The middle class family of four whose parents work hard and are trying to save for their kids' college tuition. The poor welfare mother who hit hard times and just needs temporary help will never be able to climb her way off of the welfare roles.

Any of you who have Senators who are DEMOCRATS need to call, call, fax, email, write over and over again to GET THE POINT ACROSS THAT THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE!!!!!!!!! No Republicans are going to vote for this insanity and some Democrats seem to have found a brain cell or two and are realizing voting for this would jeopardize their re-election and yeah maybe some of them actually care about their constituents. THESE are the ones that need to be targeted.


FOREIGN IMPORTERS will not be affected by this. So THEIR prices will remain lower. Businesses in this country will be put OUT of business because they will NOT be able to compete. They are already struggling in this country and fleeing. This will force MORE businesses to flee.. more jobs to be lost... the economy will delve further into the nether regions!!!!!!

thoughts on earth hour...

why is the country not "making a statement" about the spending of OUR money by the government? or the violations of the constitution by the government??? Why are the priorities so out of wack!

if we are turning off lights to make a statement it should be to say that we are doing it to SAVE money because soon we wont be able to afford the light bill because of the wasteful spending by obama!!!

lets protest the killing of innocent babies who survive abortions!! lets protest and make a statement about keeping the Dollar safe!
