Contact Your Congressman Today to vote NO to Healthcare!

This easy to use website (capwiz) will enable you to fill out your zipcode to identify your Congressional representative and Senators, and you may send a letter to the President, your Senators, and Congressional Representative all at once concerning the healthcare bill.

I have a sample letter below which you can copy and paste into the letter portion.

According to a recent email from Grassfire Nation News:

The buzz on Capitol Hill is that the Democrats are now considering what is being called the "Slaughter Solution" that will allow ObamaCare to be signed into law WITHOUT HOUSE MEMBERS EVEN HAVING TO VOTE.

According to Congress Daily, House Rules Chairwoman Louise Slaughter…" weighing preparing a rule that would consider the Senate bill passed once the House approves a corrections bill that would make changes to the Senate version."

The Washington Examiner explains that this will allow Democrats to approve ObamaCare without actually voting on the bill:

"In the Slaughter Solution, the rule would declare that the House "deems" the Senate version of Obamacare to have been passed by the House. House members would still have to vote on whether to accept the rule, but they would then be able to say they only voted  for a rule, not for the bill itself."

+ + Dems escaping the "Catch 22"

The Slaughter Solution would allow Democrats to escape their "Catch 22." Simply put, the House must pass the Senate bill BEFORE the "reconciliation" tactic can be employed -- trusting that the Senate will actually do what is promised.

The "Slaughter Solution" solves that -- and gives House members an "out" because they never actually had to vote on the Senate ObamaCare bill.

+ + Pelosi says backroom deals "pretty close" to final

Whether by the "Slaughter Solution" or another means, it is clear that Democrats are rapidly pushing ObamaCare to a final vote. After yesterday's backroom deals, Speaker Pelosi said they were "pretty close" and Majority Leader Reid added, "Health reform is going to be done. We don't have it all worked out, but we made a lot of progress."

Grassroots pressure from the Left has increased in recent days, not-so-coincidentally timed with this final push to pass ObamaCare.

Here is the entire letter as I sent it to my Senators and Representative:

Dear [The message(s) you sent had each recipient's name here]:

It should be obvious to all congressmen by now that the American people are not in favor of an unconstitutional, government takeover of the health care system in this country. This issue has been the impetus for the huge groundswell of opposition to big government that swept the nation this summer, and continues to do so.

Any "yes" vote on this matter will be a top issue in the upcoming congressional election campaigns. Americans are simply tired of the constant attempt to have socialized medicine rammed down their throats.

The President's proposal is another costly plan that actually increases penalties for those who won't or can't purchase insurance, expands the federal role in the private sector by creating a federal insurance regulatory scheme that also undermines state sovereignty, and contains some probable taxpayer-funded abortion coverage.

To use the budget reconciliation process in order to avoid a filibuster and achieve passage using a 51-vote majority is an abuse of the intent, meaning, and spirit of the legislative process.

Vote "No" to any and all forms of an unconstitutional, government health care takeover, now and forever.

Using the "Slaughter" method would be an affront to the American people, circumventing our right to true representation in the passing or failing of a bill.

I depend upon YOU to ensure that there IS a democratic vote, and that you vote NO on this legislation.
