Never forget how the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi has insulted your intelligence!
The count is now 154 up from 109 when I first reported the repeal action in the House of Representatives put forth by Representative Steve King. So we are now well on the way to the needed goal of 218 votes. And by the way, when I first wrote the draft of this blog the count was 133, but when I did an update on Representative Steve King’s website just before publishing it today, it was already up to 154!
It’s been recently revealed that nearly another half a billion dollars in taxes for Obama’s plan will come from charity-based 501(c)(3) hospitals and a whopping $70 billion will come from those who don’t buy “government-approved” health insurance or in some other way fail to comply with the law’s demands.
You can still help! Keep the public pressure on by signing the online public petition. If Congress thinks you are serious (especially with November elections around the corner) they will be forced to at least consider it. Please sign it here! And call your Representative if you have not already done so.
In Hawaii, Charles Djou (Hawaii District 1) has signed! Mazie Hirono (District 2) has not signed. It’s time to call her and let her know how you feel:
Mazie’s Washington office: Phone:(202) 225-4906. Fax:(202) 225-4987. Oahu office: (808) 541-1986.
If you do not vote in Hawaii go here to find your Representative and call them today. Tell them (or leave a message) that you want them to sign Steve King’s discharge petition, H.R. 4972 in the House of Representatives! And remind them you will be voting in November and bringing all your friends and neighbors to do the same.
