Call Today about Healthcare Reform

I usually try to keep my posts light but I feel like this is warranted. 

I just called my local Representative's (D) office and this is roughly what I told the young lady...  (I went under the advice to make it personal, serious and heartfelt).

I told him what city I lived in and that I am a homeschooler and we spend a lot of time studying history in our schooling.  What is going on in this country right now is unprecedented and is frightening.  I also told her that I was not an activist and have never really been involved in politics but if he votes for the health care bill, I and my husband will spend inordinate amounts of time and money to make sure that he does not go back to Washington.

I also asked her to assure me that this message would be delivered in full to him.

Just a reminder in case you feel led to call your Rep.  The vote is tomorrow.   You can find your Representative's contact information here:

So glad you posted on this. I called this week too. It seems we get SO many emails that its hard to know 'when to really call.' But this week I knew it mattered, so I followed the directions form AFA and made the call. If you're not used to calling, it can be a little intimidating to think about, but they are used to people like us calling ALL DAY LONG! It's not like you'll really talk to your Senator or Representative. Thanks for sharing Ginger! Hopefully more calls got made today because of you : )
