I received the following robocall earlier today:

Hello, this is Catherine.  I'm calling from the US Chamber Of Commerce because we need your help.

Some in Congress are trying to dramatically change the SCHIP health care program.  Instead of focusing on health care coverage for America's poorest children, they want to expand coverage to families making over $80,000/year, a massive government expansion.

Under this law, more than a million people will move from private insurance to government-run health care.  

Just a moment of your time can help stop this.  Please contact Congressman Randy Kuhl at 607-776-9142.  Urge him to continue his fight to keep SCHIP funding for our poorest children.  If you don't speak to a live person,  please leave a message.

This message brought to you by the US Chamber Of Commerce.

The hearing is titled "Private Security Firms in Iraq" will cover "the mission and performance of Blackwater USA and its affiliated companies in Iraq and Afghanistan and to review whether the reliance of the U.S. government on private security contractors is serving U.S. interests in Iraq".  It is being held by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee; chaired by Henry Waxman.

The hearing will address three key questions: (1) Is Blackwater's presence advancing or undermining U.S. efforts? (2) Has State Department responded appropriately to the shooting incidents involving Blackwater forces? (3) What are the costs to U.S. taxpayers for the reliance on Blackwater and other private military contractors?
