    Will Michigan Or Other Senators Blindly Follow Reid On Obamacare?

    From the Desk of:
    Steve Elliott, President, Grassfire.org Alliance

    Harry Reid is forcing 60 senators to blindly follow him
    and bring ObamaCare to the Senate floor without having
    ever seen the health care bill! See below. --Steve


    Majority Leader Harry Reid is using all the political tactics at
    his disposal to force his personal version of ObamaCare to the
    Senate floor this week.

    In fact, the first key vote on ObamaCare could take place today,
    tomorrow or Friday -- depending on how fast Reid wants to rush
    his "motion to proceed" -- and Senators are being asked to
    blindly follow Reid without seeing the bill in advance!

    Here's what Reid is doing...

    Now that he manipulated the CBO analysis (he's been working on
    this behind closed doors for days), Reid is using a Senate
    maneuver to bring another bill directly to the Senate floor
    and then replace that bill in its entirety with his until-now
    secret healthcare bill.

    But it's a gamble on Reid's part because he must find 60
    Senators to support his "bill replacement" strategy.

    In fact, Reid must pressure 60 Senators who have NEVER
    SEEN HIS BILL to support bringing his bill to the Senate
    floor... without any scrutiny... with no committee
    hearings... with no opportunity for their staffs or the
    public to read the bill!

    That means the first chance to STOP ObamaCare is taking place
    right now because he needs 60 votes to "proceed" with the
    floor debate on ObamaCare in the Senate.

    I know it may be a long shot, but if Reid
    cannot get 60 votes this week, ObamaCare is effectively halted
    in the Senate.

    That's where you come in...

    I'm asking you to take action right now to demand that your
    Senators REFUSE to proceed with any bill that the senators
    and the public has not seen for at least 72 hours!

    If Reid forces this "motion to proceed" vote, it should be rejected.

    Two ways to get your message through right now:

    + + Action #1 -- Fax key senators right now:

    Get your message faxed directly to your two Senators and other
    key senators right now using our faxfire system.

    We'll send your message to your senators. Go here:

    GrassFire.org - Real Impact Online.

    As always we encourage you to send your own faxes if you prefer.
    Go here for fax numbers and instructions:

    http://www.grassfire.net/r.asp?U=230...2&RID=21807662

    + + Action #2 -- Call your two Senators

    In addition, please also call your two Senators and demand
    that they refuse to vote on Reid's "motion to proceed"
    until they and the American people have had at least 72
    hours to review the bill!

    Your senators should not blindly follow Reid and allow his
    secret bill to reach the Senate floor without any public scrutiny!

    Sen. Levin 202-224-6221

    Sen. Stabenow 202-224-4822

    Or, call the switchboard and ask for your Senator by
    name: 202-224-3121.

    Be sure to tell your Senators that you live in their state
    or district.

    Again, Reid is gambling that at least 60 Senators will blindly
    follow him and allow his bill to make it to the Senate floor
    sight unseen. That means ObamaCare is facing its first 60-vote
    threshold.

    I realize the odds are against us, but we must stand at
    every opportunity.

    I sent our Michigan Notso Dynamic Dual a quick note yesterday... I think It may have to be a daily thing untill we are heard. I keep asking for a face to face meeting (with no union security guards.) or a town hall style meeting to explain their thinking and to ask why they are not listening to us...

    This is what we need to fight against on this Health Care Bill. I found this looking for a copy of the latest Reid Junk. This is from Common Dreams...

    The Senators have their mind made up, they have their 60 votes.

    They are cutting this Country apart a piece at a time, the problem is we have a Nation of followers, being lead by the Anti American, Anti Christ with a smile.
