The battle against a government takeover of the healthcare system is raging this summer in Washington. Public support for Obamacare has been dropping significantly the last few weeks, and I believe that much of that is due to your grassroots organizing. So let me start by saying thank you to everyone who has called their congressman, written a letter to the editor or protested outside a congressional district office this summer. We have slowed the legislation down over the past few weeks, and we are on the verge of stopping it and forcing Congress to rethink its approach to health care reform.
One of the promising developments has been the opposition to the government takeover by the Blue Dog Democrats in the House of Representatives. Some of these Congressmen have flat out told President Obama that they will not support a government takeover, and others have focused on the trillions of dollars in new taxes that would be required for Obamacare. The battle against government-run health care is being fought within the Democrat party, and that is where we must focus our efforts. We need to urge the Blue Dog Democrats on the House Energy and Commerce Committee to continue to oppose a government takeover of the healthcare system.

I know that you have been working hard all year to fight against the outreageous federal spending, bailouts and the inevitable tax hikes required to pay for this unprecedented push to grow government. It’s been a tough fight, but one worth fighting. If we stick together during the next few weeks we can put enough pressure on the Blue Dog Democrats to sink Obamacare and defend our liberty. Thank you for everything that you have done, and we will see you on September 12th for the March on Washington!
