    Remember the Senate's anti-gun ObamaCare bill that was crammed full of billions of dollars of bribes:

    * The Cornhusker Kickback?

    * $300,000,000 of bribes to Louisiana's Senator Mary Landrieu?

    * A new hospital in Connecticut for morally challenged Senator Chris Dodd?

    * Roughly ten billion in community health centers to buy off Vermont's Bernie Sanders?

    * An exemption of Bill Nelson's Florida constituents from the Medicare Advantage cuts applicable to everyone else?

    * A threat to take away Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman's committee chairmanship unless he falls into line?

    And, lest we forget, remember the Senate ObamaCare bill which still allows the ATF to troll a health/gun database in order to take away firearms from tens of millions of Americans?

    Well, that's the bill that Speaker Nancy Pelosi is now trying to cram down the throats of conservative House Democrats, who are being told they have to pass this bill that is filled with bribes and corruption --- WITHOUT A SINGLE CHANGE.

    Not a single bribe will come out of the bill which Pelosi and Obama are now DEMANDING that the House pass by March 18.

    Sure, there will be a companion package --- dubbed "ObamaCare Helper" --- which will be "passed" by the House at the same time.

    But once ObamaCare is passed, what motivation do either Obama or Senate Democrats have to pass a clean-up bill for House Democratic suckers once they've gotten the trillion dollar Senate bill they want?

    So -- how does Pelosi get the votes for ObamaCare Helper? Answer: More bribes, threats and corruption.

    ACTION: Write your representative one final time. Tell him to oppose the Senate-passed ObamaCare bill that is full of bribes and corruption. Remind him that, once Obama and Senate Democrats have gotten what they want, there is no incentive to ignore the Senate rules in order to bail out House Democratic suckers.

    -----Pre-written letter -----

    Dear Representative:

    The Senate's anti-gun ObamaCare bill is crammed full of billions of dollars of bribes:

    * The Cornhusker Kickback.

    * $300,000,000 of bribes to Louisiana's Senator Mary Landrieu.

    * A new hospital in Connecticut for morally challenged Senator Chris Dodd.

    * Roughly ten billion in community health centers to buy off Vermont's Bernie Sanders.

    * An exemption of Bill Nelson's Florida constituents from the Medicare Advantage cuts applicable to everyone else.

    * A threat to take away Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman's committee chairmanship unless he falls into line.

    And, of course, the Senate ObamaCare bill still allows the ATF to troll a health/gun database in order to take away firearms from tens of millions of Americans.

    Well, now, you are being told you have to pass this bill that is filled with bribes and corruption --- and to pass it WITHOUT A SINGLE CHANGE.

    Not a single bribe will come out of the bill which Pelosi and Obama are now DEMANDING that the House pass by March 18.

    Sure, there will be a companion package --- dubbed "ObamaCare Helper" --- which will be "passed" by the House at the same time.

    But once ObamaCare is passed, what motivation do either Obama or Senate Democrats have to pass a clean-up bill for House Democratic suckers once they've gotten the trillion dollar Senate bill they want?

    We understand that Pelosi will now attempt to shower you with bribes and threats. But believe me, your political career is more important than any bribe Pelosi can offer you.

    Please, resist the bribes and extortion from Pelosi. Vote against the bribe-filled Senate bill and against the bribe-filled ObamaCare Helper bill.

    Sincerely,
    your name here...

    NOBAMACARE !!!


    According to the Associated Press; "Barack Obama says he will persuade Congress to pass his health care overhaul even if it kills him."

    A final vote on ObamaCare is now imminent... it can come at any time. That means
    if we are going to stop it, we cannot let up the pressure.

    Barack Obama may have given Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid a March 18th deadline to ram ObamaCare through Congress, but knowledgeable sources in Congress are telling us that Pelosi will push the Senate-passed bill to the floor of the House of Representatives the very second she believes she has the votes to shove it down our throats... or maybe even sooner.

    Congress Paul Ryan (R-WI) confirmed what we are being told when he said to FOX News' Greta Van Susteren that Pelosi may bring ObamaCare up for a vote any day now. Ryan said, “She'll do that if she thinks she has the votes. They might even come to the floor without having the votes locked in because what they typically do is announce the vote to try and get the fence sitters off the fence and on board. And so they're putting huge amounts of pressure on their members to vote for this."

    And we don't need to tell you what’s at stake. You already know about the extreme cuts in Medicare... the rationing... the crippling taxes... and the long waiting lines that we may all be forced to endure for substandard medical care.

    But, truth be told, as former-presidential candidate Gary Bauer recently reminded us, the battle we are waging is not about health care, it's about preserving our way of life:

    "... bankrupting the insurance industry and undermining the free market is a stated goal of some healthcare reform advocates. ... the goal of healthcare reform is to create a system that bankrupts private industry and leads to socialized medicine. And that is a goal shared by Barack Obama."

    Congressman Ryan cautions us that Obama and Pelosi are only 5-15 votes shy of reaching that goal. And that means
    it is up to us to deny Obama and Pelosi those votes.

    Our best, and perhaps last, chance to stop ObamaCare is to stop Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi from strong-arming the votes in the House of Representatives they so desperately need to pass it.

    Please use the button or hyperlink below and send your urgent and personalized Blast Faxes to Barack Obama and each of the 31 members of the House of Representatives who live in conservative districts but previously voted in favor of ObamaCare. Or alternately, you can send over 530 urgent, personalized faxes to Barack Obama and all of the Members of the House and Senate.

    Tell them, in no uncertain terms, that when the American people said “No” to ObamaCare, we meant it. Let these elected officials know that you are on to the latest, underhanded scheme to pass ObamaCare against the wishes of the American people. Tell them to stop the back-room deals and legislative tricks. Demand they stand firm against government-run health care.

    The Horse Trading And Hardball Tactics Being Employed To Shove ObamaCare Down Our Throats Are Unprecedented. How Low Will They Go?

    Obama and Pelosi may be down for the moment, but they are not out for the count... far from it. They've got their eyes on the prize and they’re working overtime to make government-run health care the law of the land. Congressman Ryan also told Van Susteren that there's "lots of horse trading taking place" and further warned that Pelosi's an expert at "muscling votes."

    "[Y]ou can never count the Speaker out. On cap-and-trade, she was down 24 votes the night before, but she muscled it through and passed it by eight. She's very good at cutting deals, at muscling votes and using the carrot and the stick to get the votes she needs. She's been very successful so far this year."

    Make no mistake, if we do not act, Pelosi WILL strong-arm those votes. The back-room wheeling-and-dealing and political dirty tricks will only increase.

    Indeed, we are already seeing some examples of just how far Obama and Pelosi and their surrogates will go when it comes to flexing their muscle.

    Former Congressman Eric Massa resigned just days ago and clearly intimated that the emerging accusations against him actually were part of a campaign of "intimidation" that the Democratic Leadership and White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel are waging against him and other Members of Congress to tow the line on ObamaCare.

    And while the talking-heads and the pundits were quick to remind us that Massa's credibility is "questionable" (something we have little doubt about), the Associated Press put the entire unfolding drama in its proper perspective:

    "The veracity of Massa's claims cannot be verified. But they do prove that the atmosphere among House Democrats have become toxic. ... The House leadership and the Obama administration seem willing to stop at nothing to ram through health care reform, regardless of the consequences."

    And, it’s been well publicized that pressure is being applied to Congressman Bart Stupak as well. A movement is afoot to trick Stupak, and a number of Congressmen who have declared solidarity with him, into believing that their objections to ObamaCare will be resolved once ObamaCare goes to the Senate for "reconciliation."

    Of course such a thing is unlikely (and Stupak should know that too), but Congressman Ryan clearly warns us that these Congressman can be "hoodwinked."

    "What I worry about is they will fall prey to a false promise in what we call this reconciliation bill, which is if they put the Stupak language in this reconciliation bill, that gets them to vote for the Senate bill, which finances abortions. What we know is very clear is that abortion language, the Stupak language in the reconciliation bill will fall in the Senate. It won't go into law, thereby making taxpayer funding of abortion legal for the first time in a generation."

    It's clear... proponents of ObamaCare are playing hardball and they're playing for keeps. Every patriotic American in receipt of this urgent appeal must do the same. If not, then all could be lost.

    Our best, and perhaps last, chance to stop ObamaCare is to stop Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi from strong-arming the votes in the House of Representatives they so desperately need to pass it.

    Barack Obama Tells Us That This Fight Is Over. Let's Tell Him Otherwise.
    A little more than a week ago, Obama arrogantly told the American people that the fight is over and that we should just step aside and let him have his way.
    Specifically, Obama told us: “Everything there is to say about health care has been said,” just before he, rather ironically, hit the road one last time on his ObamaCare Traveling Snake-Oil Show.
    Well, we've got some news for Barack Obama. This fight isn't over... not until ObamaCare is defeated once and for all.
    Let's be frank, this attempt to push ObamaCare down the throats of the American people was never about making health care more affordable and accessible to everyday Americans like you and me.
    It was never about helping Americans... it's all about control and a never-ending quest by politicians to gain more power... power over you... the power to make your decisions for you... power over all of our lives.
    To repeat what Gary Bauer said, "the goal of [so-called] healthcare reform is to create a system that bankrupts private industry and leads to socialized medicine. And that is a goal shared by Barack Obama."
    Even Congressman Ryan said as much. According to Ryan this attempt to push ObamaCare down your throat is about ideology:
    "[T]his is more about ideology than health care policy, because if this was about health care policy, we can get a bipartisan agreement tomorrow. It's not about health care policy."
    "They're trying to ram it [ObamaCare] through as fast as they can before their power slips away from them, and that is why they're trying to create this brand-new entitlement which really does have the government take over 17 percent of our economy."
    And Ryan also said that this surreal push to shove ObamaCare down our throats is really about creating "a cradle to grave social welfare state." And that Obama, Pelosi and the other proponents of ObamaCare are determined to push it through "whether the American people want this or not..."
    Make no mistake, we are in the home-stretch of this fight. And the only people who can defeat ObamaCare are the American people.
    Congressman Ryan again: "The American people have a huge role to play in this. This will be decided this week or next week, and the American people can make a big difference."
    Remember, the Associated Press reports that Barack Obama is determined to shove ObamaCare down your throat "even if it kills him."
    And if Obama is willing to go that far (even figuratively) that means that every patriotic American reading this urgent appeal should be willing to do something... anything... to stop him. And that means (even if you've done so before) that now is the time to pump out the calls and faxes.
    Only patriotic Americans like you can make a difference but we can't make a difference sitting on the sidelines. It’s crunch time... the time to make your voice heard is now.
    Our best, and perhaps last, chance to stop ObamaCare is to stop Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi from strong-arming the votes in the House of Representatives they so desperately need to pass it.

    Please use the button or hyperlink below and send your urgent and personalized Blast Faxes to Barack Obama and each of the 31 members of the House of Representatives who live in conservative districts but previously voted in favor of ObamaCare.

    URGENT ACTION NEEDED NOW!!!
    Dear Fellow Tea Party Patriots,

    We have just received a report from the floor of the House, from an extremely reliable source, that Democratic Majority Whip James Clyburn is reporting that four Democratic Congressmen that were no votes on the healtcare bill have now switched to a yes vote.
    We need you to flood their offices with phone calls, faxes and if local, go by their offices. Especially target Rep. Altmire from Pennsylvannia.
    This should be a sign that we need to continue to pound hard with phones calls, faxes and visits to all the targets. We need to keep the pressure up and not let up.

    ObamaCare final votes this week !!!

    Freedom As We Know It Hangs In The Balance Folks...

    YouTube- 3/13/10 - Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) Delivers Weekly GOP Address on Health Care

    Grassfire Nation News Alert
    ObamaCare final votes this week

    3/15/2010

    Supporter of the Constitution,

    Today, the House starts the final push to pass ObamaCare by
    launching the "reconciliation" bill with House Budget
    Committee "Mark Up".

    This is just a bogus "shell" bill that will be replaced
    later in the week (the latest procedural trick employed to
    ram this bill forward).

    Nonetheless, the New York Times is reporting
    that the House could vote on the Senate bill
    as soon as Thursday. Both the original Senate
    bill and the "reconciliation" bill could both
    be passed and signed into law before the end
    of the weekend.

    Of course, Obama and Pelosi are trying to create an air of
    inevitability, but there are many conflicting reports as
    to whether they have the votes to pass ObamaCare even using
    the reconciliation trickery.

    EVERY DAY THIS WEEK IS CRUCIAL -- especially with groups
    like MoveOn.org ramping up the pressure on members of the
    House and Senate.

    + + Three key actions

    Supporter of the Constitution, it is vitally important that every Representative
    and every Senator hear from their constituents right now.
    Here are three ways you can expand your voice...

    #1 -- Send faxes right now

    If you want to use this service to get a message
    to your members of Congress and other key
    Congressmen, go here to schedule faxes:

    http://www.grassfire.com/122/petition.asp

    (As always, we provide all the information for you to send
    your own faxes if you prefer. Just click the above link.)

    #2 -- Call your Senators and Representative

    Your two Senators and your Representative WILL VOTE this week
    on ObamaCare. Your Rep will vote at least twice -- Senators
    will vote only on the "reconciliation" bill.

    Call, Fax Their Local & D.C. Offices IF you want them to hear your position on this issue:

    Senators:
    U.S. Senate: Senators Home

    Representatives:
    Representative Offices - United States House of Representatives, 111th Congress, 2nd Session

    Call (202) 224-3121 for the Capitol switchboard operator.

    #3 -- Petition ADDENDUM opposing "Reconciliation" and other
    procedural tricks

    This week’s votes center on using budget "reconciliation" to
    pass ObamaCare. House leadership may even use the "Slaughter
    Solution" and bypass any real votes on the Senate bill..

    We recently modified the text of the "Stop ObamaCare" petition
    you signed to reflect the concern over the use of procedural
    tricks like "reconciliation" to pass ObamaCare.

    If you would like this new language to be added
    to your petition, go here to approve the PETITION
    ADDENDUM. It takes just a few moments:

    http://www.grassfire.com/122/petition.asp

    Petitions from those concerned about reconciliation will be
    delivered this week.

    Finally...

    Be sure to go to ResistNet to network with other grassroots
    conservatives and take part in protests and rallies that are
    developing right now:

    Patriotic Resistance

    Thanks for the stand you are taking.

    Interposition, Nullification and the Political Thought of James Madison




    Editor’s Note: James Madison, often referred to as the “Father of the Constitution,” is considered on of America’s leading founding fathers. He was the principal author of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, wrote over a third of the Federalist Papers, and was the fourth president of the United States (1809-1817).
    In 1798, he secretly co-authored, along with Thomas Jefferson, the Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions to protest the Alien and Sedition Acts. It was these resolutions where the principles of nullification and interposition first gained prominence in the American tradition.
    In honor of James Madison’s birthday, March 16, 1751, we are pleased to announce the third installment of our “publications” section. This paper, “From Interposition to Nullification: Peripheries and Center in the Thought of James Madison,” by Kevin R.C. Gutzman, is a fantastic resource for understanding the political thought of Madison, which showed great changes over his career – from nationalism to state sovereignty and back.
    It was originally published in the University of Virginia’s Essays in History, vol 26, 1994.

    Stop Anti-Second Amendment ObamaCare!

    House Vote On Anti-gun ObamaCare Scheduled For This Weekend!

    Gun Owners of America E-Mail Alert
    8001 Forbes Place, Suite 102, Springfield, VA 22151
    Phone: 703-321-8585 / FAX: 703-321-8408
    http://gunowners.org




    ACTION: The anti-gun health care issue may very well be decided this week. Even if you have already called, faxed or e-mailed your congressman, it is imperative that you do so one last time. Please see contact information and suggested letter/talking points below.


    Tuesday, March 16, 2010


    This is gun owners' last shot (so to speak) at saving the country from the worst piece of legislation that we've seen in years.

    Make no mistake about it: The pivotal vote in the House will be -- directly or indirectly -- on whether to adopt the corrupt and discredited Senate ObamaCare bill verbatim. And the votes are being corralled by Obama and Pelosi through a new round of bribes, threats, and corruption.

    Consider what has been implanted in the bill which will be voted on in the House this week.

    1. Restrictions upon gun owners. The Senate-passed version would allow the ATF to troll your confidential medical records in order to take guns away from potentially tens of millions of Americans. The "individual mandate" (in Sections 1501 and 1502) will make it impossible for you to keep private, medical information out of the government-controlled medical database that was created in last year's stimulus bill.

    2. Bribes, bribes, bribes. The bill your Representative will be voting on still contains virtually all of the bribes that made the Senate version such a disgusting spectacle. This includes:

    * Mary Landrieu's $300,000,000 "Louisiana Purchase;"

    * A broadened version of the nauseating "Cornhusker Kickback" to get Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson's vote;

    * The roughly $10 BILLION (with a "b") bribe to Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders for clinics which could well be run by ACORN and Planned Parenthood;

    * The $100 million Connecticut "Hospital Handout" bribe to corrupt Senator Chris Dodd; and

    * The $300 million Libby, Montana, asbestos bribe.

    3. Unconstitutional mandates. According to the Congressional Budget Office, the bill to be voted on this week would increase the cost of private insurance by 10-13% over what it would be if Congress did nothing -- and require, under penalty of imprisonment, that you buy it.

    4. Corrupt procedures. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D) and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D) plan to ram this bill through the Congress and onto the President's desk using cheat schemes called "reconciliation" and "self-executing rules." This is nothing other than a slimy attempt to ignore the will of the people, who according to the latest polls, overwhelmingly oppose this legislation:

    * Under "reconciliation," any language qualifying for special Senate procedures had to have been reported out of committee by October 15, 2009. As of March 15, 2010, the language was still not available, even though the House Budget Committee voted to approve the non-existent draft.

    * Under the Senate rules, these special procedures can be used only to reduce the deficit. Once you discount the accounting tricks and fraud that Reid and Pelosi are employing, ObamaCare would INCREASE the deficit by half a trillion dollars over the first ten years.

    * Despite Obama's lies, "reconciliation" has never been used for non-budgetary issues which do not reduce the deficit.

    * Now, House Rules Committee Chairman Louise Slaughter (D-NY) is proposing a plan (which has been approved by Pelosi) to "deem" ObamaCare passed without having the House vote on it. Read more about this plan at Pelosi to use Jedi mind trick to pass health care bill .

    According to news reports, the phones are ringing off the hook on Capitol Hill. Estimates as to how close Pelosi is to delivering the votes vary widely. But Rep. Bart Stupak (D-MI), who opposes the bill on grounds that it would allow for taxpayer funding of abortions, says he thinks Pelosi is about 16 votes away.

    Please take action now!

    ----- Pre-written letter and talking points -----



    Dear Representative:

    I am writing you with one final plea to vote against the Senate's corrupt and bribe-laden ObamaCare bill.

    Despite the fact that the Senate tried to allay gun owners' concerns, the Senate bill would still allow the ATF to troll the confidential medical records in order to take guns away from potentially tens of millions of Americans. This is because the "individual mandate" in Sections 1501 and 1502 of the Senate-passed bill would make it impossible for people to keep private, medical information out of the government-controlled medical database that was created by the stimulus bill.

    The process that put together this Senate bill has been marked with bribes (such as the Cornhusker Kickback, the Louisiana Purchase, etc.), by unconstitutional mandates and by corrupt procedures. As to corruption, any rules vote on your part which "deems" ObamaCare as passed will be held in the greatest contempt by your constituents.

    You represent my state, not the "state of Nancy Pelosi." Americans overwhelmingly oppose this legislation. Please -- please listen to your constituents and vote against ObamaCare.

    Sincerely,
    your name here

    ACTION: The anti-gun health care issue may very well be decided this week. Even if you have already called, faxed or e-mailed your congressman, it is imperative that you do so one last time. Please see contact information and suggested letter/talking points below.


    Tuesday, March 16, 2010


    This is gun owners' last shot (so to speak) at saving the country from the worst piece of legislation that we've seen in years.

    Make no mistake about it: The pivotal vote in the House will be -- directly or indirectly -- on whether to adopt the corrupt and discredited Senate ObamaCare bill verbatim. And the votes are being corralled by Obama and Pelosi through a new round of bribes, threats, and corruption.

    Consider what has been implanted in the bill which will be voted on in the House this week.

    1. Restrictions upon gun owners. The Senate-passed version would allow the ATF to troll your confidential medical records in order to take guns away from potentially tens of millions of Americans. The "individual mandate" (in Sections 1501 and 1502) will make it impossible for you to keep private, medical information out of the government-controlled medical database that was created in last year's stimulus bill.

    2. Bribes, bribes, bribes. The bill your Representative will be voting on still contains virtually all of the bribes that made the Senate version such a disgusting spectacle. This includes:

    * Mary Landrieu's $300,000,000 "Louisiana Purchase;"

    * A broadened version of the nauseating "Cornhusker Kickback" to get Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson's vote;

    * The roughly $10 BILLION (with a "b") bribe to Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders for clinics which could well be run by ACORN and Planned Parenthood;

    * The $100 million Connecticut "Hospital Handout" bribe to corrupt Senator Chris Dodd; and

    * The $300 million Libby, Montana, asbestos bribe.

    3. Unconstitutional mandates. According to the Congressional Budget Office, the bill to be voted on this week would increase the cost of private insurance by 10-13% over what it would be if Congress did nothing -- and require, under penalty of imprisonment, that you buy it.

    4. Corrupt procedures. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D) and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D) plan to ram this bill through the Congress and onto the President's desk using cheat schemes called "reconciliation" and "self-executing rules." This is nothing other than a slimy attempt to ignore the will of the people, who according to the latest polls, overwhelmingly oppose this legislation:

    * Under "reconciliation," any language qualifying for special Senate procedures had to have been reported out of committee by October 15, 2009. As of March 15, 2010, the language was still not available, even though the House Budget Committee voted to approve the non-existent draft.

    * Under the Senate rules, these special procedures can be used only to reduce the deficit. Once you discount the accounting tricks and fraud that Reid and Pelosi are employing, ObamaCare would INCREASE the deficit by half a trillion dollars over the first ten years.

    * Despite Obama's lies, "reconciliation" has never been used for non-budgetary issues which do not reduce the deficit.

    * Now, House Rules Committee Chairman Louise Slaughter (D-NY) is proposing a plan (which has been approved by Pelosi) to "deem" ObamaCare passed without having the House vote on it. Read more about this plan at Pelosi to use Jedi mind trick to pass health care bill .

    According to news reports, the phones are ringing off the hook on Capitol Hill. Estimates as to how close Pelosi is to delivering the votes vary widely. But Rep. Bart Stupak (D-MI), who opposes the bill on grounds that it would allow for taxpayer funding of abortions, says he thinks Pelosi is about 16 votes away.

    Please take action now!

    We Will Determine The Fate Of Anti-Gun ObamaCare !!!

    You and Your Neighbors Will Determine the Fate of ObamaCare

    Your congressman is one of almost 60 votes which will determine whether ObamaCare is passed into law -- and will, in turn, shape the course of American history.
    On one side, your congressman is being bombarded daily with bribes, extortion, and lies coming from Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi.
    Just the most recent fraud scheme (called the Slaughterhouse Rule after Rules Committee Chairman Louise Slaughter) would "deem" the $2.5 trillion ObamaCare bill to have passed the House -- without the House ever having voted on it.
    On the other side are the American people. According to one recent poll, three-quarters of them want to bury ObamaCare -- or else start over on a bipartisan solution.
    Seventy percent of voters in another poll of key congressional districts like yours said they would be less likely to vote for a congressman who supported ObamaCare.
    So you, your family, your neighbors, and your church
    -- between now and this weekend -- may well determine whether ObamaCare is passed into law.
    The phones are still ringing off the hook. Please keep trying to call. If you can't get a hold of your Congressman, then please email him or her the message below.
    ACTION: Please contact your representative immediately! Have your family and friends call him. Have the members of your church or gun club call him. Urge him or her, one final time, to vote against the Senate's corrupt and bribe-laden ObamaCare bill.

    ----- Pre-written letter -----

    Dear Representative:
    I am writing you with one final plea to vote against the Senate's corruption and bribe-laden ObamaCare bill.
    On one side, I understand that you are being bombarded daily with attempts to bribe, extort, and lie to you.
    Just the most recent fraud scheme (called the Slaughterhouse Rule after Rules Committee Chairman Louise Slaughter) would "deem" the $2.5 trillion ObamaCare bill to have passed the House -- without the House ever having voted on it.
    But on the other side are the American people. According to one recent poll, three-quarters of them want to bury ObamaCare -- or else start over on a bipartisan solution. Seventy percent of voters in another poll of key congressional districts like ours said they would be less likely to vote for a congressman who supported ObamaCare.
    So I would urge you to ignore the bribes -- and listen to the people who elected you.
    1. YOU CLAIM TO BE PRO-GUN.
    THE FACTS: Even AFTER the Senate "fix," the bill would still allow BATF to troll my confidential medical records in order to take guns away from potentially tens of millions of Americans -- without due process -- because they suffer from maladies such as PTSD.
    If you support the Second Amendment, you won't vote for this bill.
    2. YOU CLAIM TO OPPOSE THE BRIBES CONTAINED IN THE SENATE BILL.
    THE FACTS: Make no mistake about it: In order for the sleazy "reconciliation" procedure to go forward, you will have to approve and pass into law the pack of bribes in the corrupt and discredited Senate bill -- without changing a single word.
    And the votes are being corralled by Obama and Pelosi through a new round of bribes, threats, and corruption.
    Even if the reconciliation "fix" is adopted, it will still contain virtually all of the bribes that made the Senate bill such a disgusting spectacle, including:

    • Mary Landrieu's $300,000,000 "Louisiana Purchase;"


    • A broadened version of the nauseating "Cornhusker Kickback" to get Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson's vote;


    • The roughly $10 BILLION (with a "b") bribe to Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders for clinics which could well be run by the anti-gun ACORN and Planned Parenthood;


    • The $100 million Connecticut "Hospital Handout" bribe to corrupt Senator Chris Dodd; and


    • The $300 million Libby, Montana, asbestos bribe.

    If you don't support these, you won't vote for this bill.
    3. YOU CLAIM TO WANT TO REDUCE MY PREMIUMS.
    THE FACTS: According to the Congressional Budget Office, ObamaCare would increase the premiums for insurance on the private exchanges by 10-13% over what it would be if
    Congress did nothing -- and require, under penalty of imprisonment, that I buy it.
    If you don't support increases in my premiums, you won't vote for this bill.
    4. YOU CLAIM TO OPPOSE TAX INCREASES ON THE MIDDLE CLASS.
    THE FACTS: 80% of middle class taxpayers would see their taxes go up -- directly or indirectly -- under the Senate bill.
    If you oppose tax increases on the middle class, you won't vote for this bill.
    5. YOU CLAIM TO SUPPORT HONEST, TRANSPARENT PROCEDURES.
    THE FACTS: The House leadership proposes to pass ObamaCare through a slimy procedure of cheat schemes called "reconciliation" and "self-executing rules." To implement either of these strategies requires even more dishonesty:


    • Under "reconciliation," any language qualifying for special Senate procedures had to have been reported out of committee by October 15, 2009. As of March 15, 2010, the language was still not available, even though the House Budget Committee voted to approve the non-existent draft.


    • Under the Senate rules, these special procedures can be used only to reduce the deficit. Once you discount the accounting tricks and fraud that Reid and Pelosi are employing, ObamaCare would INCREASE the deficit by half a trillion dollars over the first ten years.


    • Despite Obama's lies, "reconciliation" has never been used for non-budgetary issues which do not reduce the deficit.


    • Now, House Rules Committee Chairman Louise Slaughter (D-NY) is proposing a plan (which has been approved by Pelosi) to "deem" ObamaCare passed without having the House vote on it. Nancy Pelosi is bragging that she likes this procedure because "people don't have to vote on the Senate bill." This, from those who are screaming about the importance of an "up-or-down" vote.


    If you don't support this corruption, you will not vote for the Senate bill -- or, particularly, for "deeming" the passage of the Senate bill.
    Richard Nixon "made history." And, while there are historic events which move mankind forward, there are events -- normally achieved through bribery, corruption and extortion -- which history looks back on with nothing but disgust. ObamaCare is such a sleazy development. Please vote against it.
    And please know that, if you support this abomination, I, my family, and my friends will do everything in our power to insure that everyone we know is aware of what you have done.
    Sincerely,
    your name here...

    UPDATE - CBO report a scam; final Anti-Gun ObamaCare vote THIS Sunday...

    From the Desk of
    Steve Elliott, Grassfire Nation

    We knew the CBO report was a scam, but now we have
    confirmation from an unlikely source -- the New
    York Times. Final House vote Sunday. Details
    below. --Steve

    Concerned Citizen,

    This isn't over.

    The Democrats are doing everything in their power to create
    the illusion that the House will pass ObamaCare on Sunday.
    And everything is designed to create the appearance of
    "momentum," including the bogus CBO numbers (more on that
    in a minute).

    Pelosi must maintain every Democrat "yes" vote from the
    earlier House vote in the fall to pass ObamaCare. The
    target is 216 votes. But Politico posted this morning a
    list of 16 potential "No-to-Yes" votes and 26 potential
    "Yes-to-No" votes. If this holds, ObamaCare fails.

    And votes are still moving. Yesterday, two Democrats
    officially flipped from "No-to-Yes" while two went from
    "Yes-to-No."

    + + CBO Report is Bogus

    Democrats are desperately trying to create the illusion of
    momentum from yesterday's CBO report, but the report is
    bogus -- a fact confirmed by a story in the New York
    Times - yes, that New York Times. After stating Democratic
    leaders "spent more than a year" working with the CBO
    "as they fine-tuned" the various ObamaCare bills, the
    article states:

    "In other words, the overall numbers were never
    going to miss the mark. Whenever the budget
    office judged that some element or elements
    of the bill would cause a problem meeting the
    cost and deficit-reduction targets, Democrats
    just adjusted the underlying legislation to
    make sure it would hit their goal."

    Translation -- the numbers were rigged. Just like the rest
    of this process, Pelosi and gang have made a mockery of
    the Congressional Budget Office and the latest CBO report
    is just part of their scam.

    + + House "Slaughter" in place

    Everything still points to the House using the "Slaughter
    Solution" to "deem" the Senate bill passed while they pass
    the reconciliation bill.

    But, again, this is not a done deal! This is a fluid process,
    and votes are still switching. That's why it is critical
    grassroots Americans keep up the pressure.

    Amidst a sea of faxes and phone calls, pouring into House
    offices yesterday, Grassfire Nation hand-delivered more
    than ONE MILLION petitions -- with each of the 435 House
    offices on Capitol Hill receiving petitions from their
    constituents.

    Concerned Citizen, success or failure of ObamaCare depends on you
    and me. We are the last line of defense against this socialist
    attack to reshape our nation - and we can't afford to let
    even one moment slip by during these last hours.

    Here are three ways you can expand your voice...

    Action #1 -- Send faxes right now

    Now that we are in the final 48-hour countdown, you may
    want to consider scheduling another round of faxes right
    now. Go here to schedule a new round of faxes:

    Grassfire Nation

    (As always, we provide all the information for you to send
    your own faxes if you prefer. Just click the above link.)

    Action #2 -- Call your Representative

    are still taking place leading up to the expected vote early
    Sunday afternoon.

    Use this time to engage your friends and family members to
    get involved in this critical debate. Ask everyone you know
    to do something today to let their voice be heard. Forward
    this message to as many people as you can.
