Just received this in my inbox via MoveOn.org.
We are organizing a Non-Profit Organization called Texans for the Implementation of the Affordable Care Act. The Organization will be founded to:Texas Democrats can get updates by visiting Texas Democrats and signing up. I'm sure they would welcome any help you can offer.
1. Lobby our state senators and state representative for support of the ACA. Attorney Skip Lanz has volunteered to handle setting up the organization and will be handling the lobbying in Austin. I have already recieved 4 emails from state representatives that will support the ACA.
2. Possibly filing a Federal Lawsuit against the State of Texas for failure to protect Texans by not Implementing the ACA. We do not have a law firm in mind as of yet that can or will handle this case if we decide we have no other choice. If you have a law firm in mind or if you are an attorney that accepts challenges please let me know.
We will need the following:
1.Website construction and hosting. Need volunteers that specialize in website construction and hosting.
2. Board Members for the Non-Profit. The Articles of Incorporation will include that members will communicate via email so there will be no need for a physical meeting.
3. Volunteers that can deliver the petition to Governor Rick Perry preferably someone that can print out the petition and hand deliver the petition in Austin,Texas. I will be personally delivering the petition to my state senator Tommy Williams and state representative Dan Huberty in the Greater Houston Area.
We do not believe this will be a long fight as this is a here and now type polical issue so I do not foresee a long term committment.
thanks again for your efforts
your friend in the trenches
