    ObamaCare UPDATE - From Gun Owners of America

    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...

    Friday, March 19, 2010

    It may be that by the time Monday rolls around, the House of Representatives will have voted on the anti-gun ObamaCare bill.

    By now, your Representatives have heard all the reasons why gun owners oppose the bill.

    If there are any Representatives who are still wavering, it won't be more facts and figures that will sway them. No additional information will convince them... except for one.

    It's the answer to this question: "What does November have in store for my reelection bid?"

    Please make one last communication with your Congressman. A lot will be riding on this vote!

    ACTION: Please make one last contact to your Representative, urging him to vote NO on ObamaCare. Ask your wife, your relatives, your neighbors, your church -- everyone, short of your dog -- to do the same.

    CONTACT INFO:

    Phone: toll-free at 877-762-8762; or call the regular number at 202-225-3121.

    Email: Visit the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center at http://www.gunowners.org/activism.htm to send a pre-written message to your Representative.

    ----- Pre-written letter / talking points -----

    Dear Representative:

    The ObamaCare bill is full of fraud, corruption, bribes... and language that will negatively impact upon gun owners' rights.

    So I just want you to know that I strongly OPPOSE this legislation, and I will be carefully watching how you vote.

    Please be assured that I will definitely remember in November!

    Sincerely,

    D.C. ObamaCare Protest Update From Tea Party




    Thank you to those who are planning to be in DC later this morning. Last minute updates are below.

    Thank you also to each and everyone of you who has stepped up in the past months, recent weeks, and days to make phone calls, plan a Tea Party Patriots rally, visit a Congressional Office, attended Tea Party Patriots rallies, and so much more. A very special thank you to the Local Coordinators around the country who keep stepping up to organize events. Regardless of what role you played, each of you have sacrificed a lot in the fight against this particular bill.

    The government takeover of health care bill is up for a vote once again and Tea Party Patriots is once again in DC. During each of the previous votes on this bill, Tea Party Patriots has been in DC supporting you as you make your voices heard.

    There was a bus of people who came to DC (from Ohio, maybe) in November for the Code Red Rally that Congressman Michele Bachmann announced. That bus stayed extra days in DC to wait until the final vote. And as luck would have it, there was another rally the Saturday after "Bachmann's rally" (less than 48 hours later). The Tea Party Patriots from Ohio attend the second rally and watched as the bill was unrolled on the steps of the Capitol East Lawn. That same busload of people and hundreds of other people stayed all day and into the late night to watch the House vote on the health care bill and to make those ignoring the will of the American people look the ordinary citizens in the eyes as they did it.


    Many of you have already decided to stay through Sunday. We are getting emails from people saying they will stay into next week if necessary. Know that Tea Party Patriots will be in DC through at least Sunday for the vote in the House. If you decide to stay through Sunday, we will be here to support you as much as we can.

    For those who have not thought about staying through Sunday yet, if there is anyway for you to stay, that might be very helpful. The Congressmen who are representing the 55% of Americans who do not want this bill to pass deserve some support and we can continue to ask the others to vote no. We do not have specific plans for Sunday yet and will play it by ear. Watch the website for updates.

    In the meantime, here are a few last minute reminders for you:


    1. Remember to bring your clipboard and a pen. We will have handouts for you.
    2. It is going to be sunny and in the mid to upper 70s. Wear sunscreen.
    3. There are several events happening in DC tomorrow including a marathon. The marathon is going to have a lot of streets closed. Be sure to allow time for traffic.

    Again, thank you for your commitment to our core values: fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government, and free markets. We look forward to seeing you tomorrow.

    It is late. Any typos are the sole responsibility of a very tired Jenny Beth Martin. ;-)

    ObamaCare Update From The Tea Party


    This Ends Today

    Congress plans to vote on the Government Takeover of Health Care today at 2PM eastern. It's up to us to stop it, again, and make sure it's dead once and for all.

    If you're anywhere near DC, get in your car and get to the Capitol right away.

    If you cannot make it to DC, start hitting news websites and blogs immediately. Most news websites give you the ability to leave comments at the bottom of their stories. Reporters often use this to gauge public sentiment and reflect it in their news stories. Congress pays attention to the news and it affects their votes.

    Spend the afternoon commenting on as many health care related stories as you can. Hit national news websites, local news sites, political blogs, and any other public venue you can find.

    We must leave no stone unturned.

    ObamaCare: Its Not Over Yet...

    Obamacare: It’s not over yet

    On Tuesday, just 36 hours after the House of Representatives voted, President Obama signed into law the massive health care reform bill. Despite its tremendous policy flaws, its lack of bipartisan backing, its widespread public disapproval and its egregious constitutional inadequacies, Obamacare is now the law of the land.
    » The Heritage Foundation is fighting to repeal Obamacare. Watch Ed Feulner's video message.
    But we haven't even seen the worst of it. The new bill is about to undergo so-called "fixes" via a reconciliation bill. "You may have thought it was impossible to make the policy and process of Obamacare even worse," writes Heritage's Conn Carroll. "But that is exactly what this reconciliation bill does."
    According to a new analysis from Americans for Tax Reform, over the course of a decade, the reconciliation bill will add an estimated $52.3 billion in new taxes. These taxes will be levied against employers, the sick, low-income and moderate-income workers, and just about everyone else, regardless of income.


    These so-called "fixes" are misnomers that actually fracture our economy further instead of repairing it. But even true fixes aren't enough to correct Obamacare. As Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) pointed out: "This bill is unconstitutional and it cannot be fixed. It must be repealed." The Heritage Foundation could not agree more.
    On top of the harm to our economy and harm to our health care that Obamacare will inflict, this liberal success will only fuel the left's agenda to push forward with cap-and-trade, amnesty for illegal immigrants, and other costly and harmful big-government proposals. These proposals would draw us further away from American principles like self-government and closer to a European welfare state.

    "But don't take our word for it," writes Heritage's Rory Cooper. "Here is audio of Congressman John Dingell (D-MI), a champion of [Obamacare] telling radio host Paul Smith on WJR in Detroit: 'It takes a long time to do the necessary administrative steps that have to be taken to put the legislation together to control the people.'"
    Our Founding Fathers established a limited government in order to protect our liberties—not to control the American people. When Patrick Henry famously exclaimed 235 years ago, "Give me liberty, or give me death," he was making a statement that has come to define our national character.
    Patrick Henry's sentiments remain very much alive today among the American people. Though under assault from the left, "the American love for liberty [that] prevailed in our founding will prevail once again," writes Heritage President Ed Feulner in his response to Sunday night's vote.
    It is true that the passage of Obamacare opens the doors for the left's radically progressive agenda. But it can also serve to remind Americans of the courage of our Founders as they fought government tyranny. This is especially important, Heritage scholar Matthew Spalding writes, as we "strive to revive our commitment to liberty and self-government."
    It's not over yet! And thanks to your support, Heritage is able to continue to fight against Obamacare.

    'Obamacare' cops: $1 billion to force new tax compliance

    16,000 new IRS agents to be required under health-care reform

    Posted: March 28, 2010
    7:24 pm Eastern

    By Jerome R. Corsi





    Collecting taxes under the Democrats' newly passed health-care plan will cost the federal government more than $1 billion a year in salaries alone, Republicans in Congress estimate.
    The legislation will require the IRS to hire as many as 16,500 additional auditors, agents and other employees to investigate and collect billions in new taxes imposed on Americans, according to a House Committee on Ways and Means Committee Republican report prepared March 18 for ranking members Reps. Dave Camp, R-Mich., and Charles Boustany, R-La.
    In March 2009, the federal government's average annual salary was $42,035 for tax examiners, $91,507 for internal revenue agents and $63,547 for tax specialists, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics "Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2010-11 Edition."
    Averaging the three pay grade averages yields an estimated $65,696 per IRS worker hired, assuming an equal number of tax examiners, internal revenue agents and tax specialists.



    Together, the 16,500 new IRS personnel needed to collect taxes under the new legislation will cost the federal government somewhere in the realm of $1.1 billion
    The IRS media office objected that the Joint Committee on Taxation publication JCX-18-10 issued March 21, "Technical Explanation of the Revenue Provisions of the Reconciliation Act," does not specify any number of IRS personnel that must be hired to implement the tax provisions of the bill.
    Rep. Kevin Brady, R-Texas, disagrees.
    "The Internal Revenue Service will see its largest expansion since withholding taxes were enacted during World War II to enforce the glut of new tax mandates and penalties included in the Democrats' latest health care plan," reads a statement on Brady's congressional website.
    Brady is the ranking Republican on the Joint Economic Committee.
    "We need thousands of new doctors and nurses in America, not thousands more IRS agents," Brady insists. "In addition to more complicated tax returns, families and small businesses will be forced to reveal further tax information to the IRS, provide proof of 'government approved' health care and submit detailed sales information to comply with new excise taxes."
    By 2016, the IRS will be required under the "Obamacare" legislation to monitor the health insurance status of individuals and businesses to determine if the insurance purchased as reported on tax returns meets the level of coverage required by the law. In cases of noncompliance fees and penalties are to be assessed.
    The IRS could not give WND any indication how the Democrats' new legislation would implement the "bounty hunter" program President Obama suggested would track down abusers and collect evaded taxes on all government health programs, including Medicare and Medicaid.
    The IRS further did not respond by publication deadline to WND's request for information regarding the likely number of additional personnel the IRS would have to hire to implement Obamacare, the immediate tax consequences the IRS would have to monitor and audit, and the likely cost to the IRS of implementing the new health legislation.

    The Tea Party Express (website: www.TeaPartyExpress.org) has issued the following statement from Political Director, Bryan Shroyer, regarding the rumors of Bart Stupak's retirement:

    "The surprising announcement that Congressman Bart Stupak is abandoning his campaign for re-election shows the power of the tea party movement. Stupak was not longer able to hide his betrayal of conservative principles because the tea party movement was determined to educate the voters in his district of his vote of betrayal for Obamacare.

    Help Gun Owners of America Repeal Anti-gun ObamaCare!

    Help GOA Repeal Anti-gun ObamaCare!

    Monday, March 22, 2010


    Well, it was a long, hard fight.

    You spent nearly a year working with GOA to kill the anti-gun ObamaCare bill, even though much of the time, people were saying that its passage was inevitable … that it was going to pass no matter what we did.

    But as you know, it wasn’t inevitable, and we almost beat the anti-gun legislation that passed last night. By 4 pm yesterday, House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi still did not have enough votes to pass this monstrosity!

    If you were watching the “sausage making” on Sunday -- or have been listening to the news today -- you know that we narrowly lost the battle over ObamaCare. [Click here to see how your Representative voted.]

    That's the bad news. The good news is that we only lost a battle... for the war is not over. Here's what your GOA is doing to stall ObamaCare in its tracks:

    * Gun Owners of America has been working in Virginia to pass legislation that will exempt citizens from purchasing ObamaCare. This legislation has passed both houses and is now sitting on Governor Bob McDonnell's desk. He is expected to sign this bill tomorrow, making the Old Dominion the first state to take such an action. Other states are looking to follow Virginia's example, and you can be sure that GOA will be involved in those states, as well.

    * GOA is ready to assist the 38 states which are now planning to file suit against the anti-gun health care law as soon as the President signs it tomorrow. Over ten years ago, GOA helped Sheriffs Richard Mack and Jay Printz sue the federal government after the Brady Law required law enforcement to run background checks. You may remember that in Printz v. U.S. (1997), the Supreme Court ruled in our favor. We will now try to parlay that victory and make the same case here, namely, that the federal government can not force state authorities to act on its behest.

    * Finally, GOA is committed to targeting the sell-out congressmen who turned a deaf ear to your letters, phone calls and emails. For almost a year, Gun Owners of America has been the ONLY gun group at the national level working to kill this legislation. Some thought this was an impossible battle... but what they don't realize is that even though we narrowly lost, the fight has been well-worth the effort.

    Why? Because the sleeping giant has been awakened... the American people have been radicalized and they are ready to kick the bums out of office. This sentiment would not have happened if we had remained silent and had sat on our hands.

    So with your help, we will make legislators pay for their arrogance in November!

    But to do all of this, we are going to need your help. Will you stand with us?

    We need 100% participation from our members to help make a difference. We realize that times are tough, so even if you can spare only a few dollars, would you please help us take on the giant Obama-machine?

    Please be a part of this effort to repeal ObamaCare. Click here to contribute to GOA .

    Thank you. Every little bit helps!
