Please act NOW
Time is running out!
Keep focusing on the 13 Senators as well as Snowe, Lincoln and Pryor.
There is only one thing that can stop our government from taking over the healthcare system – that is YOU and millions of grassroots activists like you! We must do this NOW. There is no time to wait.
We had a great conference call Wednesday evening to discuss the current healthcare legislation. From the information shared on the call, we have revised our action plan for the week. We have added a few additional action items to our original Action Alert from Monday night.
According to the experts in DC, the legislation will probably go to the floor of the Senate on October 19th and to the floor of the House on October 26th. So what we must do NOW is continue the action plan from earlier in the week and take the following action steps:
Contact Senators Snowe, Lincoln and Pryor
First action step is to contact Senator Olympia Snowe from Maine and the two Senators from Arkansas . These Senators need to hear from us more than any other Senators. When contacting their offices, let them know that while you may not live in their states, their votes affect all Americans and that you’d be happy to support their next campaign, if they listen to the American people. If they don't listen to the American people, you would be happy to contribute to the campaign of their opposition. Their contact information follows:

According to a recent AP article, Snowe is looking more favorably at the bill, since it received a “positive” cost report. Read the full article here. We really need to apply the pressure. If she swings to the other side, there is a greater chance of the Senate getting the 60 votes it needs for cloture.
