Reid Threatens to Be Grinch who Stole Christmas
 
 
Dear Fellow Tea Party Patriots,

 
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid threatens to be the Grinch who stole Christmas.  Sen. Reid is saying that he will keep the Senate in session to shove government takeover of health care down our throats on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. 

This is an outrage! It shows the an absolute disrespect to the most sacred Christian holiday. In an era of political correctness, it is stunning that the Senate Majority Leader is willing to disregard the most sacred of Christian holidays. 

In addition to shunning the Christians of America, he is preventing the Senate staff members on the Hill in DC from going home for the holidays.  The staff members in Senate district offices will also have to pull longer hours.  This will prevent them from being able to spend the Christmas holiday with their families around the country. 

Now, there is a major winter storm warning in Washington DC.  If the weather is as bad as predicted the ability to travel in and out of DC will be very difficult over the weekend.  If the travel is difficult over the weekend, then it will back up into next week making it even more difficult for travel next week during a peak travel period.

If this bill passes the Senate in 2009, the taxes on the health care bill will go into effect on January 1, 2010 but the benefits do not go into effect for another four years.  How can it be so important to pass the bill in the next few days when benefits do not begin for years?  How can the Senate be so disrespectful to Americans? 

It is time to call your Senators to express your frustration about these actions.  Call your 2 Senators in DC today and call their district offices as well.  In addition to calling your 2 Senators, call the targeted Senators listed below. 

Our intelligence on the Hill tells us that the Senators still undecided about the health care bill are:  Sens. Webb. Warner, Ben Nelson (of Nebraska), and Liberman.  Be sure to call these Senators as well to tell them to vote no on the health care bill.  If you have trouble calling the DC offices, call the district offices.

You are making a difference showing up at demonstrations and melting the phone lines.  Do not let the pressure off and do not ease up the intensity of your passion.  Keep up the good work!  We are so proud to stand beside you in this battle.  Let us know if there is anything we can do to help you!

PriceWaterhouseCooper released an independent study of the Senate Finance Committee version of the government takeover of health care bill.  The study showed that American family's budgets will be severely impacted by the bill and that health insurance premiums will increase dramatically.  You may wish to read the study and use this as supporting documentation when you contact the Senators.  Additionally, you may find some these resources helpful as well:
