Skip to comments.(Live Thread) CALL YOUR SENATORS! Let Us Know Results Here!
Posted on 09/25/2013 7:02:11 AM PDT by SE Mom
We have a few senators doing the heavy lifting for us, led by Senator Ted Cruz, to determine whether or not we lose more of our LIBERTY.
Probably lots of us have already called, e-mailed, tweeted and so forth, but we can do it again!
After calling if you'd be kind enough to report back what the various staffers had to say, it would be revealing!
If you click on the link it takes you to page with all Senate numbers.
Obama/crats are attempting to tax, gather data, and otherwise collapse what remains of the private healthcare delivery system. Obamacare is not about healthcare or even insurance coverage, it is about centrally controlling from DC every aspect of your life.
Your doctor will be their informant on how you live, work and eat while their IRS agents will monitor every financial aspect of your life in the guise of keeping you healthy. There will not be one part of your life they will not only know but control through the Unaffordable Healthcare Act. This is a dream come true for the central planners who run the Communist....er, I mean.... Democrat Party and the worst nightmare for your average American.
How to middle finger the O/Crats: We know the O/Care ship is listing---ready to heave--- maybe do a Costa Concordia into the Potomac.
THE BAD NEWS KEEPS COMING Reuters reports the US government on Wednesday scaled back its projections for Obamacare's impact in 2014, saying the law would generate slower healthcare spending growth and provide coverage to only half as many of America's uninsured as anticipated last year.
The biggest factor in the change stems from the U.S. Supreme Court verdict last year allowing each state to decide whether to expand the public Medicaid program for the poor under Obama's healthcare reform law. Republican leaders in nearly half of the nation's 50 states have rejected the expansion.
HHS now expects 11 million uninsured Americans to obtain coverage next year, down from about 22 million projected a year ago, according to the report, which appeared in the journal Health Affairs. (Excerpt) Read more at reuters.com ...
There's also lawsuits and state problems.
HERE'S HOW THEY'RE STOPPING OBAMACARE A West Virginia nonprofit has turned down a federal grant it received to help residents navigate new health insurance options under the Affordable Care Act after it received an inquiry from Attorney General Patrick Morrisey about how it would protect consumer information. Clarksburg-based West Virginia Parent Training Inc. did not respond to a letter it received from Morrisey directing it to answer 26 questions about the group's personnel and hiring practices, including employee background checks and employee monitoring programs, the Sunday Gazette-Mail (http://bit.ly/17M1QVe) reported. (Excerpt) Read more at sanluisobispo.com ...
YOUR TURN--Contact your state AG---ask him/her to issue a letter of inquiry to groups receiving federal "Navigator" grants. The inquiry should center on questions WRT how the group intends to protect consumer data.
In particular, the questionnaire should ask if the tax-funded "Navigator" program intends to transfer personal/ financial/medical data of the insured to the local/county/national Democrat Party, relevant Unions, banks, investment companies, drug companies, insurance companies. Trial Lawyers' associations and whether "Navigators" have sub rosa contracts with these, and other groups, plan to profit, to provide significant info to enrich databases for pecuniary purposes.
The AG also needs to confirm (1) whether the "navigator" was ever convicted of a felony....... and....(2) whether the "navigator" can be bonded.
Most importantly demand that your AG enforce the requirement that "Navigators" must have a state insurance license (consists of a comprehensive test on all aspects of insurance and compels a background check).
PLANNED PARENTHOOD WILL HAVE ACCESS TO SS#, TAX, MEDICAL INFORMATION
Breitbart Big Government ^ | 8/23/2013 | William Bigelow / FR Posted by markomalley
EXCERPT Planned Parenthood is about to obtain access to your Social Security number, tax form, bank account, and medical records.
With the advent of ObamaCare, consumers buying health insurance through health care exchanges will be required to speak to navigators. Navigators are supposed to help consumers find the best coverage and ascertain whether they are eligible for a federal subsidy.
Any navigator will have access to the federal data hub, which holds information from the Department of Health and Human Services, the IRS, the Social Security Administration, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Defense Department, the Office of Personnel Management, the Veterans Health Administration, and the Peace Corps.
Planned Parenthood received $655,000 from the Obama administration to hire navigators. In Iowa, Planned Parenthood of the Heartland received $214,427; in Montana, Intermountain Planned Parenthood, Inc. got $295,604; and in New Hampshire, Planned Parenthood of Northern New England raked in $145,161.
And there is not much scrutiny over who these navigators will be; HHS will not require background checks or fingerprinting, and a previous criminal conviction, even if it was for identity theft , will not trigger a rejection. To make matters worse, the administration has cut the new employees training from 30 hours to 20 and reduced screening.
OKLAHOMA WINS FIRST OCARE BATTLE: Quoting AG Pruitt--- "Obamacare was meant to be so open-ended that it could mean anything. We are seeing thousands of pages of new rules being written, both by HHS and the IRS. The open-ended interpretation of Obamacare enables this.....if the law doesn't contain a particular provision, no problem. They just make it up as they go along."
"Such is the case that involves the OK lawsuit."
The court rejected the federal governments argument that Oklahoma lacked standing to challenge the law, allowing us to proceed with this pivotal case, Were optimistic the court will recognize what states have known for months that the IRS disregarded the law by making the large employer mandate effective in Oklahoma or in any of the 33 other states without a state health care exchange.
REFERENCE Oklahoma challenged implementation of the Affordable Care Act after the IRS finalized a rule that would allow the federal government to punish large employers, including local government, with millions of dollars in tax penalties in states without state health care exchanges, which is not allowed under the health care law.
Congress provided a choice for Oklahoma and other states in implementation of the health care law, and the IRS is attempting to take that away by rule, General Pruitt said. The administration miscalculated how many states would support this law, so now theyre using the IRS to push through provisions that Congress did not pass.
PROTECT YOURSELF---Obamacare is easy pickins for identity thieves. Steps to take to minimize risk of identity theft:
1. Contact the IRS Identity Protection Specialized Unit at 1-800-908-4490
2. Order a tax account transcript from the IRS that verifies basic personal data along with details of your tax return filed, which may come in handy if you are checking to see whether someone else filed a fraudulent return on your behalf
The Federal Trade Commission (link at website) also lists several steps you must take if you have been a victim of identity theft.
Thanks. For those from Indiana. Coats office is not answering and the mail box is full. If this changes. Let us know differently
Also talked to RNC They have received numerous reports of people contacting Mc C office only to be greeted by rude staff who hang up on you. Be prepared
Ted Cruz has the numbers in an easy format.
Call them all, regardless of party. I’m even calling and emailing candidates for office and telling them that their answers will make the difference.
BookMark and BTTT for Freedom
EXCELLENT LIZ! Thanks.
Bob Casey’s office is just too busy (spit) ... left a message.
My one Kansas Senator, Pat Roberts stands with Cruz and was there to “spare” him earlier this morning; my other Kansas Senator Jerry Moran is on board against defunding Obamacare and has heard my wrath!
Shutting down Obamacare is the desire of The American people.
Shutting down Military pay is the goal of Obama, Reid and Pelosi.
Obama, Reid and Pelosi are using this battle over shutting down Obamacare to spin it into blame on the Surrender Republicans for shutting down The Government, starting with the US Military, as usual.
The litmus test for future membership in THE NEW REPUBLICAN PARTY is lack of fear of being blamed for trying to shutdown Obamacare.
Contact your US Senator today, ESPECIALLY if your Senator is a Democrat.
Ted Cruz and Mike Lee are the only two Republicans in the US Senate who CONSISTENTLY make an effort to actually CONSERVE, in my humble, but usually correct opinion.
Therefore, use those two Senators to compare and contrast the present opponents to Old-Style Republican Cornyn.
My guess is that someone on the TEXAS PING list personally knows a superb future Senate candidate, cut from the same cloth as Cruz and Lee.
Yep, it is a dirty job, but we need to reach out to these future candidates, and ask them to run for Federal office for the good of their children, grandchildren and their descendants.
What we have here, is failure to communicate. ( Warden in movie Cool Hand Luke.)
We claim to be Conservatives, but what are we focused on Conserving?
Where are the men and women that are willing to be candidates to conserve what we want conserved?
The New Republican Party starts when YOU step up and act.
What has each of us done to encourage and recruit men and women to be candidates to conserve what is left of our State or Country?
How have we failed to communicate?
Phone numbers, email address,
Do we stand together against the forces of tyranny?
If ever there was a time to do so, it is now.
We will never be stronger than we are now.
Senator John Cornyn is the Republican Minority Whip to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
These two men control how yalls interests are represented in the US Senate.
Both Cornyn and McConnell have pledged to oppose the efforts of Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee to defund Obamacare.
To oppose Cornyn and any other Old-Style Republican, please contact them early and often.
Below is the contact information for Senator Cornyn.
BTW, an Old-Style Republican is one who always surrenders before a fight, because a better time to fight is always some time in the future, away from the fog of the controversy.
Strike a blow for THE NEW REPUBLICAN PARTY !
Contact the Old-Style Republican politicians!

Rubio is my Sen. too. I called to thank him for helping Sen. Cruz. Even though his effort may not immediately help impact Obamacare, I appreciate that Cruz, Rubio, Lee, Paul trying to ‘do something’ vs many other Republicans who sit on their hands. Rubio’s staff was very appreciative of the call.
Tried to call Cruz’ office but message system is ‘full’ so I emailed to thank him.
Bit by bit, this Administration is trying to take away freedoms and it’s time those we elected work to protect the America intended by our Founders!
McCaskill is Obama’s sock puppet.
I will vote for one person and one person only for president.
He is a national hero.
Mike Lee is also great.
Marco Rubio gets no redemption. You got in bed with John McCain, and now you have McAids, and there is no cure for that, Mr. Rubio.
I still called and staff recorded I was against.
Called Ron Johnson, Tammy Baldwin and Ron Petri (Congressman) this AM. Their staffs were polite, but non-commital.
Called my loser, Portman, got a “leave a message” message. I asked why he wasn’t standing with Cruz on the floor.
unfortunately I can call Schumer and Gillibrand till the cows come home and it would do less than nothing.
I stinks to live in the PRNY.
I contacted my Missouri senators. One Republican (sort of) and one Democrat. It won’t do any good but I’m glad I tried.
Bill Nelson of Florida; the phone rings and rings and than just stops ringing.
I don’t know. Even calling the Dem senators is productive. I think it’s my duty, even when disheartened, to let them know I’m watching them and paying attention.
Weird, isn’t it? I’ve been getting same thing. Going to try his local offices now.
My Senator Saxby Chambliss says that even though he is retiring in a few months and has nothing to gain politically from this either way, he has already decided to screw over Georgia one more time and stand with Harry Reid and Baraq Obama.
I’ve been calling Senator Cornyn (Traitor TX) all morning. All of the voicemails are full in DC and at his Dallas office.
I will keep trying.
I called both of my worthless sacks of RINO manure from Georgia.
I sent an e-mail to Cornyn because ALL OF HIS PHONE LINES AT ALL OF HIS OFFICES HAVE BUSY SIGNALS! I just wonder if people are really talking on the lines or if he took the phone off the hook in all of his offices.
Collins....Has not made up her mind...
has voted against obamacare in past but feeeeeels that everything should be discussed on the floor
When pointed out that there were not enough votes to override veto the call answerer went silent.
She is cowardly.
Corker’s local office mail box is full
Left msg on Lamar!’s and will call back until it fills up.
Then will go back to all other regional offices of both of these tools.
I sent an email to Senator Ayotte this morning. Sending one to Shaheen is a waste of bandwidth. She is more interested in expanding abortion and eliminating any voter ID regulations. She is the “Abortion Queen!”
Corker’s Nashville office:
Does not announce his intention on procedural votes. I told her that we will lose the procedural vote and Reid will have his way. I told her his vote on cloture needs to be NO.
Laughs. I always tell ‘em I am glad they are busy, and that I sure hope that they are busy with lots of real ticked off citizen patriots ;)
Collins....Has not made up her mind...
has voted against obamacare in past but feeeeeels that everything should be discussed on the floor
Well then Collins should oppose cloture since Reid is not allowing amendments. Shouldn’t be a difficult call if she really wants “everything discussed on the floor”.
“”Even calling the Dem senators is productive. I think its my duty, even when disheartened, to let them know Im watching them and paying attention.””
AMEN! Keep ‘em lookin’ over their shoulders ;)
more than likely they can’t find their boss..
he is usually hiding in a closet...
worthless and useless...he should have been voted out..he runs on his fathers name...and he is nothing like his late dad...
I have Tim Kaine and the other Virginia doofus. No use in calling them...
Sadly all of this is too little too late....
Obamacare won’t really matter in the long run anyway because the entire federal government is headed for a debt implosion which will very likely end in some sort of wholesale downsizing of government.
The insanity you are witnessing right now is indicative of the final chapter of a failed government on the verge of collapsing into ruin.
When that day arrives, expect short-term social chaos followed by long-term abundance as principles of economic liberty are finally restored.
John Cornrows is voting for colture therefore voting for Obungle Care. A woman calling Michael Berry say Texas grassroots are fired up to replace him. I stand with the grassroots.
My other senator is STILL SPEAKING. God I love this man.
Need a fax number list of senators. Is there one compiled?
Help. I am by fax machine all day. Can send my message, here is what I have been faxing-
To the honorable Senator:
May I ask what you will tell your maker when he asks you why did you support such a dark, secretive, unfair, unconstitutional act, Obamacare?
I am curious, what will you tell our LORD in Heaven of your actions? Please consider what you do today as it will define who you are for the rest of your life! Defund and repeal Obamacare now!
only done ten so far
office is not answering and the mail box is full.
Same for mark warner Virginia
Republican offices are reluctant to discuss pertinent talking points.
It’s is not over we need to encouraged fence straddlers and punish traitors.
That's the weasel path the RINOs all expect to take. Tell them that a vote for cloture is a vote for ObamaCare. That they know it, we know it and we know what they are trying to pull.
Oh heck no! I do it with a smile :) Sorry Lord, I know I probably shouldn’t, but I do love knowing I am stirring THEM up.
Thank You Lord, for blessing us with brains and a sense of humor :)
I contacted the Injun and Ed Markey.
And, beyond that, there is use in contacting with "pats-on-the-back" the Senators that deserve kudos: Cruz, Lee, Rubio (on this cause), Vitter, and a few others.
