Today is Important, America…

Today is the day to exercise your rights, pick up your phone and hold your senators and reps accountable to YOU.  Because they work for YOU. 

My plan for the last week and a half was to take Chase and go up to the Story Time With Congress.  Walk the halls of the Capitol and let my voice be heard in opposition of H.R. 3962 (healthcare reform bill for those of you living under a rock :)

But since Eli is still sick…and I can’t go, I wanted to post this for those that will not be able to make the D.C. event today... here’s what we can do to help...

Democratic leaders have said that a vote on H.R. 3962 could come as early as Thursday.

Be sure to call both the Washington DC and local offices of your representatives. Let them know that you are opposed
to this bill, and that  you are watching this situation to see how they
vote, and their vote will reflect your vote come the next election.
Some of us may NOT be in DC, but we have to do our part to help those
that did attend. Call, fax, email, write, and let them know that you
oppose H.R. 3962!
