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.
Senator Mary Landrieu (LA)
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. It is vital that we have a strong presence of people that favor removing the bond from the ballot at this meeting. 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: email@example.com

Canvassing Day on October 17th. WE NEED YOU!!!
Our "Beat the Bond" campaign is well under way and we are making great progress. To keep up this pace we need your help! On Saturday, October 17th we will be canvassing neighborhoods with information about the bond and our Town-Hall meetings. LSU has a bye this week so it is a great opportunity to get out there and make our voices heard. We will meet at the Jones Creek Library @ 12:00 noon. (Please note: if the bond is taken off of the November ballot then we will canvass neighborhoods with information on our Health Care town-hall with Rep. Cassidy.)
The Tea Party is continuing to make a difference on all levels of Government. Come and join us this weekend as we unwind a little and cheer our LSU Tigers on to victory. We will be Tail Gaiting all day so it should be great time. We will send a follow up email to everyone to let you know where we will be set up. Also, be sure to take a look at the side bar and click on the link for the Book Club. This is a great opportunity to meet with folks and exchange ideas.
