Please find below this weeks Items of Action we are concentrating on....
Item #1: Scott Brown U.S. Senate (the MA seat left open by Ted Kennedy)
The Massachusetts special US senate election is on Jan 19th. Candidate Scott Brown will will take away the 60th vote from the Democrats and will KILL THE HEALTHCARE BILL.
Brown says he will vote to KILL Obamacare if he is elected. He is Republican vote #41 and his vote blocks cloture and KILLS the healthcare bill. We have made up 30 points in the polls in the last month and are ahead by one!
Organizing for America is sending out info for a phone bank for Brown's opponent Coakley (D) today. MoveOn.org and SEIU are pouring money into the race to get Coakley elected. Bill Clinton and John Kerry are going to Massachusetts to help. We NEED to win this one. Scott Brown needs our help and the national phone bank is the key.

Item #2: Nebraska's special treatment in the Health Care bill
Attorney General Cordray is urging members of Ohio's congressional delegation to oppose the provision that would give preferential treatment to the state of Nebraska.To view Attorney General Cordray's letter to the Ohio delegation, go to www.OhioAttorneyGeneral.gov/ HealthCareLetter.
Fellow Patriots, AG Cordray's letter, though nice at tooting his own political horn, is nothing more than empty words. It is time our politicians stop putting our money where their mouth is and start doing their job! Instead of asking the OH congressional delgation to fight the health care bribery package put in place for Nebraska and other states, Attorney General Cordray should use every means available to him as Attorney General in stopping this -- not pawning it off on others.
If Attorney General Cordray is REALLY against this preferential treatment he should do his part in representing the State of Ohio's best interest and join South Carolina Attorney General Henry McMaster -- the leader of a group of 13 Republicans and one Democrat State Attorneys General -- who are threatening to file a law suit against Congress in order to stop passage of the radical health care bill currently being considered.
We are asking you to contact Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray and urge him to join the other State Attorney General's Offices in their efforts. Kindly remind Attorney General Cordray's office that the Tea Party Patriots in Ohio are fully aware he is up for re-election this year.
You can also go to the Ohio Attorney General website (http://www. ohioattorneygeneral.gov/) where you can file a consumer complaint against the very health care bill that Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray says unfairly burdens residents in Ohio.
