From our friends at Tea Party Patriots:

Dear Fellow Tea Party Patriots,

We have just received a report from the floor of the House, from an extremely reliable source, that Democratic Majority Whip James Clyburn is reporting that four Democratic Congressmen that were no votes on the healtcare bill have now switched to a yes vote. We need you to flood their offices with phone calls, faxes and if local, go by their offices. Especially target Rep. Altmire from Pennsylvannia. This should be a sign that we need to continue to pound hard with phones calls, faxes and visits to all the targets. We need to keep the pressure up and not let up.

Let me add - THIS IS A BAD BILL! Even my most progressive friends and I agree on this! Everything that people hate about insurance companies will now be cemented into place! The individual mandate ensures that we will all be customers of the insurance companies, without reforming the insurance companies at all! This is a bad bill, no matter what side you are on. Let's demand, together, a good bill, with input from EVERYONE, not just one party! And let's demand it be done in full daylight, not behind closed doors. We should all be very ashamed of how this bill has come to be, regardless of your party affiliation or ideology.

  1. I’m more ashamed of the fact that 40 million of my fellow citizens still lack health insurance. The bill is not perfect, but its a step in the right direction. If it fails, it will be a long time before any administration, Republican or Democratic, will try again. The Republicans had eight years to try to expand health care coverage, they did nothing and the number of the uninsured increased.
