What I'm hearing from my friends in my old office on the Hill is that the Rush Limbaugh dittoheads are tying up the phone lines to Congress. They've been making 100 calls for every single call that we make.

We can't let them shut our voices down. PLEASE CALL YOUR SENATORS RIGHT NOW AND E-MAIL THEM TOO.

Over 598,000 jobs were LOST IN JANUARY! That just pushed the unemployment rate to 7.8%. Over half a million Americans lost their jobs in one month. What will happen this month? How many more if this stimulus doesn't pass? HOW many more?

SEND FAXES TOO. For example, check out the office locations on Senator Daniel Akaka (D-HI)'s website.

If you can't get through your Senator's main office on the phone and the line is busy, then look up the office locations on your Senator's webpage, and call these local phone numbers of the offices.

The staffers there will take down your phone message and e-mail or fax it to the main office in Washington, D.C., where they keep a running tally of all the incoming correspondence by calls, e-mails, AND faxes.

PLEASE CALL YOUR SENATORS RIGHT NOW!

TELL THEM NO TO THE NELSON-COLLINS CUTS TO EDUCATION, AND INSIST ON THE HOUSE VERSION OF HEALTH CARE BENEFITS FOR THE UNEMPLOYED IN THE CONFERENCE PACKAGE.

TELL THEM THAT YOU WANT THEM TO SUPPORT THE STIMULUS BILL.

TELL THEM THAT OVER 598,000 JOBS WERE LOST LAST MONTH. ASK THEM HOW MANY MORE WILL BE LOST IF THEY DON'T SUPPORT THE STIMULUS.

TELL THEM TO SUPPORT PRESIDENT OBAMA AND TO PASS THE SENATE STIMULUS BILL WITH NO CUTS TO SPECIAL EDUCATION, SCIENCE, AND MASS TRANSIT!

C'mon, Kossacks, let's beat the dittoheads today and force these quisling Senators to pass the Senate stimulus bill today!

Listen to President Obama and help him get this stimulus bill passed! CALL BEN NELSON AND TELL HIM TO BACK OFF ON THE CUTS!

TELL HARRY REID THE SAME!

We really need you to call Senators like Bill Nelson. According to kossack Micheline, she was the first call in support of the stimulus bill.

Thanks (1+ / 0-)

I got through. According to the assistant, after receiving hundreds of calls, I was the first one in favor of the stimulus bill.

You can CALL The WHITE HOUSE and let President Obama know that you're with him on this stimulus bill! (h/t to TigerMom)

UPDATE: PLEASE CALL THESE SO-CALLED CENTRIST SENATORS WHO SUPPORT THE NELSON-COLLINS CUTS AND TELL THEM NO!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
