People. Today should be a busy day since the Statists have once again scheduled a cowardly, nightime, weekend vote on healthcare.
Contact your Senators today urging them to vote ‘No’ tomorrow night to even begin debate. We can kill this thing tomorrow night if they can’t get 60 votes.
I just sent this to Senator Webb in Virginia, who being a veteran who fought for liberty and freedom I hope would still be open minded about this bill.
I am writing you to encourage you to vote ‘No’ on the Senate health care coming up for debate tomorrow night.
Vote ‘No’ so debate cannot proceed.
Vote ‘No’ to end debate should debate proceed.
Vote ‘No’ on the bill should it ever come up for a final vote.
You see, this bill is simply un-Constitutional. Nowhere in the founding document does it empower Congress to mandate the free (for now) citizens of this great country to purchase a product or service. Not the Commerce Clause. Not the ‘general welfare’ language. Nothing.
I would encourage you and the junior Senator from our great Commonwealth to look back in time to 2 1/2 weeks ago, where the people of this great state overwhelmingly voted against the leftist policies of the junior Senator when he was Governor, and Gov. Kaine, and President Obama. The people of this country want MORE freedom not less. MORE opportunity not less and this health care bill robs the people who are the engine of this economy their ability and desire and means to produce and grow our economy. People want to be free and independent. You, of all people being a decorated veteran, should know this since you bravely fought for the very freedoms and liberties this bill would take away.
Resist the urge to vote with your leftist colleagues. Vote with the people you represent. Vote to kill this bill.
The people will not forget a ‘Yes’ vote in 2012.
