Phone calls I haven’t made

I received the following email from the Demmerkrats today. Love the part where, because of the Stimulus Bill, “2 million Americans will be lifted from poverty”. I seem to remember something similar promised about LBJ’s War on Poverty. How’s that working out, a zillion trillion dollars later?

President Obama launched the most ambitious effort to stimulate the economy in our nation’s history when he signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act on Tuesday.

Your representatives need to hear from you when they vote for the change you mandated in November. Doing what’s right can be thankless when the culture of Washington tries to make political games out of the issues that matter to everyday Americans.

Rep. Jim Himes, Sen. Christopher Dodd, and Sen. Joseph Lieberman’s votes were crucial to passing the bill and creating and saving jobs in Connecticut.

Can you pick up the phone right now to thank Rep. Himes, Sen. Dodd, and Sen. Lieberman?

Rep. Jim Himes
202-225-5541

Sen. Christopher Dodd
202-224-2823

Sen. Joseph Lieberman
202-224-4041

Report your call.

Here are some suggested talking points for your call:

– I’m calling to thank [Congress member’s name] for supporting the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
– I’ll be watching closely online and in the news how taxpayers’ money is spent in the implementation of this Act.
– I encourage [Congress member’s name] to continue working with President Obama to lift America out of this economic crisis.

We still have a long way to go, but working together we were able to take this important first step.

With the plan in place, more than 2 million people will be lifted out of poverty, 20 million at risk of losing their health care will be protected, and 3.5 million jobs will be created or saved.

There will be plenty more ways for you to contribute in the weeks and months ahead.

Thank you for your continued support,

Mitch

    The really scary line is:

    “There will be plenty more ways for you to contribute in the weeks and months ahead.”

    Let’s see… higher taxes, inflation, continued stock market declines, higher interest rates…

    Christopher, sound the alarm!
    Who gives a sh*t about some stupid Democrap propaganda outreach.
    This is URGENT: Texas National Guard on High Alert due to some serious civil unrest all along the Mexican border. The Texas National Guard is being called to duty because our incompetent, self-absorbed Feds are too worthless to do anything.
