Just a reminder to keep up the pressure with our calls. We can't let up! Late last night we received an email from the Tea Party Patriot National Coordinator Team relaying the request from Bachman that we are needed in DC again ASAP. Understanding that on such short notice and that many of you just returning from DC this may not be feasible.... but we can and must continue the calls, faxes and emails to our targeted House members.
Even if nobody is answering the phones in DC or the District offices of the House members, please leave a message and fill their voice mails until the phones shut down! We are right there and we can do this!
We gave Sen. Harry Reid reason to pause and he is now back tracking on bringing the Senate version of the Health Care bill on the Floor for a vote before the first of the year -- it looks like there is also some apprehension surfacing in the House....
H/T to Wellsy's World --
Speaker Nancy Pelosi had hoped to have a vote on her behemoth health care bill in a rare Saturday vote in what seemed to be a rush to hurry through unpopular legislation before any more issues could be raised about it. Today, however, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer indicated the vote may be delayed until Sunday or early next week. The reason? Democrats don’t have the votes to pass it as opposition to the bill is coming on multiple fronts, from both a fiscal perspective and a concern about federal funding for abortion led by Democratic Rep. Bart Stupak.One of our Congressmen in OH, Congressman Steve Driehaus, is leaning for supporting Stupak's opposition to abortion funding in the House Bill -- but as you will see below, he is catching flack from the "Free Health Care for Everyone" lefties in OH...
From the Skeptic One Blog
"Ohio Congressman Steve Driehaus is one of several democrats threatening to torpedo health care reform, unless the measure blocks the rights of women to get an abortion. Specifically, he says he will vote against the house health care bill, which is set for a vote tomorrow, if there are no provisions barring the use of federal funds for a woman to exercise her rights to an abortion."

How about them apples? The liberals want equality for everyone, except when it is not in line with their agenda! Would or could you expect anything different?!?
The other Congressman from OH wavering on the House Health Care Bill is Blue Dog Democrat, Zack Space. Space has been flip-flopping on the hidden loop holes on Illegal Immigrants in the health bill.
The administration is very concerned about Space's & Rep. Boccieri's House seat in the next election - thus VP Biden's recent Cleveland fund raising event for them. We must remind Space & Boccieri that only people in the 16th & 18th can vote for or AGAINST them -- not Biden.

There will be more pleasant fall Saturday afternoons, we may not have another chance with stopping a government take over of our Health Care. Keep up the good work!
