Blue Dog Red Alert

Now is the Time to Make a Difference!

Capitol Dome
The fate of our Nation hangs in the balance. It is time to make our voices heard!

The Senate health care vote is resting on Blue Dog Democrats.

Guess what? We have two of them in our Commonwealth! The Richmond Tea Party received the following email from Senator Warner yesterday:

"I will continue to work to strengthen and improve this legislation, because I believe the cost of inaction is unacceptable. If we do nothing to fix our system, our current health care system will bankrupt our nation. Already, health care spending represents one-sixth of our total economy, and that is projected to grow to one-third by 2040." [excerpt]

Does that sound like someone prepared to vote against the socialized health care bill? You know what Warner is really saying, right? This will simply transfer one-third of our economy by 2040 to the Federal government. Is that what you want? This will be the single greatest grab of our liberty since the New Deal.

Senator Webb is also considered a vote that is still undecided. As Virginians, we have an obligation to tea party patriots across our country to influence and sway these supposed Blue Dogs in our own state. Over 56% of Virginians oppose Obamacare. Warner and Webb need to hear from us.

Let's do our part! This bill will fundamentally change the course of our country. We know you have called, emailed, and protested these last few months, but it is a small price to pay for our freedom. We will take action at the state level to thwart this government expansion, but we must also continue the fight with Congress.

Many like-minded organizations and individuals are calling for a Code Red Alert. They are expecting many thousands in attendance. Here are the details:

What: Senate Emergency Rally
When: Tuesday, December 15th, at 1:30pm ET
Where: Upper Senate Park, on Constitution Ave. between New Jersey and Delaware St. NE

We strongly encourage you to attend. While RTP will not be able to provide buses this time around, the train offers reasonable rates and many choose to metro in from outside the District.

If you cannot make it to DC on Tuesday, we encourage you to call or email Senator Warner and Webb and let them know you will not forget how they vote. There contact information can be found here [click to read].
