    Grassfire Nation News Alert
    ObamaCare final votes this week

    We must have your signed petition by NOON
    WEDNESDAY to be included in the final
    hand-delivery to Congress before the
    ObamaCare vote. Go here to sign and see below:

    3/15/2010

    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 "shell" bill that will be replaced later in
    the week (the latest procedural trick employed to rush this
    bill forward). It is clear that Democrats will stop at
    nothing to get this bill passed before the Easter recess.

    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.

    + + Two key actions for TODAY

    Marian, it is vitally important that every Representative
    and every Senator hear from their constituents right now.
    Here are two ways you can expand your voice...

    #1 -- Have your petition hand-delivered to Congress this week

    We will be hand-delivering petitions to Congress this week
    opposing both ObamaCare and the use of budget "reconciliation" to ram this
    bill through.

    The deadline to be included in the hand-delivery is NOON
    WEDNESDAY. Please go here to sign

    #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.

    I am not normally a petition signer but I figure what can it hurt?

    Yeah, I'm not really convinced about the value of on-line petitions, but I suppose why not?

    I'm not either, but I believe they're printing these and hand delivering them to Congress. Used to have a relative in the Missouri congress (both house and then senate) who explained that many decisions are made by how many inches of paper are sent their way. 2" beats 3", etc.

    If the reps get bombarded with page after printed page of signatures against this bill, some of them in the less safe seats just might pay attention.

    Haven't been signing too many petitions, because have to confess that a bit afraid of being put on a gigantic Obama enemies list. But it's time that we take a stand. Have been getting further messages that they need any signatures by tomorrow, when they'll deliver them to the hill.
