“Contact Your Representatives”
November 5th (Thursday) at Noon – “Congressional House Call” – Activists from all over the country are being asked to show up at key Senate and Congressional offices in every state with their own message telling our Senators and Representatives to “keep their hands off our health care.” Americans for Prosperity are sponsoring this event.
Stop ObamaCare from passing the House and Senate by contacting your representatives daily. Time is running out, but we can still stop the out of control spending and taxes. The next two weeks are critical – so don’t delay.
