Sound off to the Senate……
Tell them to LISTEN to you!
The weather outside here in Washington is frightful…. So instead of asking everyone to turn out for a candlelight vigil, we’re holding a
NATIONAL “VIRTUAL VIGIL”
The Senate is closing in on a middle-of-the-night key vote to move the disastrous healthcare bill forward. Now, the vote is scheduled for around 1 AM Monday morning.
JOIN THE VIGIL!
We’ll have special surprise guests -- Congress, state legislators, doctors, taxpayer groups, and others joining us as well.
61% of the public opposes this bill – from both the right & left, old & young
500,000 doctors oppose it –
despite the AMA’s sell out
$200 billion in windfall revenues
for the insurance companies
Just call in the conference call or log into the webcast.
You’ll have at least 2 minutes to tell them what you think, and you'll also be able to write letter to the senate that will be hand delivered to the Capitol on Monday!
Click here to submit your letter to the Senate.
DON’T LET THEM TAKE THIS VOTE IN THE DEAD OF THE NIGHT WITHOUT KNOWING THAT WE ARE WATCHING THEM!!!!
61% of the public opposes this bill – from both the right and the left
500,000 doctors oppose it – despite the AMA’s sell out.
Our challenge to you is to:
Come together on December 16th.
On the 16th we are asking Americans to hold a candlelight vigil concerning healthcare to wake up the United States Senate! We are asking that you go to your Senator's local office, between 5pm and 8pm, with candle or flashlight in hand.
Now is the time. We must be clear! If you can’t be at a Senator's office do it at your local medical center, park, or whatever works best for your area.
Contact Senatorial offices and tell them you are coming. Let them know you are going to stand up for patients, seniors, and all Americans. Give them the choice to participate with you. Go to www.congress.org and you will see "get involved." Put in your zip code and it will list your state and federal representatives with contact numbers and emails. Let your state law makers know too and ask them to help out.
One simple requirement to participate: everyone should bring a candle or flashlight.
For an example event, click here to see what is being planned at Senator Feinstein's office in San Diego.
If there is not an event scheduled in your area FILL OUT THE BELOW FORM to get one started. The preferred location for the vigil is at your Senator's local office. If your Senators do not have a local office near you, consider holding one at another prominent and easily accessible location in your city (e.g. park, outside a hospital, etc.)
Please email questions to firstname.lastname@example.org . Also if you are attending a vigil, we would like to have you call in to our live webcast on Wednesday. Please write us at email@example.com if you can call in.

This week on SECOND OPINION, the web radio show.....
Is there any "health" in the healthcare reform bills?
A former "Nader's Raider" says, 'not so much'.
We will have our regular Wed. evening webcast, so please join our special guest, Jim Turner, Chair of "Citizens for Health" talking about the role of alternative medicine and wellness in the current Senate and House healthcare reform bills.
He says if you're into acupuncture, or other things deemed "alternative" you may be left out of luck under health care reform plans in Congress. He'll explain why bills on the Hill will make it tougher to get the care and healing you really want....... And why it should cover things like vitamins, exercise equipment and others.
LISTEN TO LAST WEEKS' SHOW....WITH SPECIAL GUEST
He says the Senate shouldn't fall for the "doc trick" con that the House did....
LISTEN TO ANY OF OUR SHOWS AT ANY TIME.....

As we wrote earlier today, even though we have been considering every vote to be “first and goal” there are still a number of plays left in the game, and will need your efforts now more than ever to win it.
Americans need to take the view from 35,000 feet. That's the view of the controllers, the global budgeters, and the folks who drop bombs without having to see the faces of the victims….
What is Cloture?
So, how do you feel about Harry Reid using a rule that was originally designed as a means of funding WWI by expediting war appropriations bills NOW being used to force Universal Health Care upon the public? Keep in mind the following:
