Two Urgent Calls For Action

Posted on July 30, 2009. Filed under: General Info, Soapbox | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

Congressman John Fleming ( Louisiana physician) has proposed an amendment that would require congressmen and senators to take the same healthcare plan they force on us (under proposed legislation they are curiously exempt).  Congressman Fleming is encouraging people to go on his Website and sign his petition (very simple – just first, last and email).  I  have immediately done just that at:  http://fleming.house.gov/ .   If Congress forces this on the American people, the Congressmen should have to accept the same level of health care for themselves and their families.

Your Senators Will Vote On S 787 (Water Land Grab) In Sept.

Do not take your Senators for granted.  Call, Fax and E-mail them now.

You need to contact your Senators NOW to find out when they will be back in your state over the August-September recess.  Plan to go to one or more of his or her meetings to fire questions about the Clean Water Restoration Act (S 787) and urge a NO vote.  Call any Senator at (202) 224-3121.

S 787 is the biggest Water and Land Grab in history.   The full Senate could vote on S 787 in September.   You must take action.

—–The Senate Committee removed the requirement that the Corps and EPA can only regulate “Navigable” waters.  That means the Corps and EPA will be able to regulate “all waters of the United States.”  That includes rain water and underground water even if you don’t have surface water.

Congress Moves To Seize Control Of All U.S. Waters

—–Do you want the Corps and EPA in your backyard?

—–Do you want the EPA and Corps to control your water?

—–Do you want the Corps and EPA to control all your watersheds that means all your land too?

—- That’s what will happen if the new Clean Water Restoration Act (CWRA) (S 787) passes Congress.

See the “letter to the editor” at the bottom of this message.  You should try to write a letter to the editor of any papers in your local area. 

Action Items: 

—–1. Forward this message to your entire list if possible.  Forward it to no less than five other people.

—–2. Call both your Senators immediately to ask for their August and September recess schedule.  Call (202) 224-3121 to reach any Senators office.  Be sure to ask for the staff person who handles the proposed Clean Water Restoration Act (S 787).  When you speak to that person, ask for his or her e-mail address and fax number. 

—–3.  After you call, send a message by fax or e-mail to both your Senators using that staff person’s e-mail or fax address opposing the Clean Water Restoration Act.  Send a new message even if you have written before.  You can write your Senator at:  Honorable ______,

US Senate, Washington DC., 20210.   Try to fax or e-mail it as mail to Washington, DC is slowed by the Anthrax inspections.

—–4.  Send a copy of your letter with a cover letter to the Honorable James Inhofe, Ranking Member, Environment and Public Works Committee, US Senate, Washington, DC 20210.  You can fax it to (202) 224-5167.

—–5.  Organize teams in your area to go to your Senators meetings to discuss the Clean Water Restoration Act (S 787).

—–6.  Also call your Congressman at (202) 225-3121 to tell him or her you are opposed to the Clean Water Restoration Act and urge a NO vote if it comes up in Committee or on the House Floor.  So far it has no number and has not made it out of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee thanks to all the calls to Congressmen by you and many others.  Keep it up.  Tell them this is a big issue people will remember in November, 2010.

—–7.  Send a letter to the editor of any newspapers in your local area.  The most read section of many newspapers is the Letters to the Editor. See the real Letter to the Editor we are sending as a sample “letter to the editor” by Randy Dutton at the bottom of this e-mail.  Please do not copy this letter.  Write in your own words.  The Clean Water Restoration Act is S 787 in the Senate.  It does not have a House number yet but it will so contact your Congressman.

The Clean Water Restoration Act (S 787) passed the Senate EPW Committee that failed to hold hearings in this Congress.  You can still ask your Senators and the Senators on the Committee to hold hearings.  Ask them how they could vote on a bill without holding public hearings.  You must deluge both your Senators with calls, letters, e-mails and faxes.  Call your friends in other states and have them call their Senators to oppose S 787.  This is a monster land grab.
