“Official Announcement”

Joan Fabiano, activist and Tea Party organizer will join the Michigan leg of the Tea Party Express III “Vote Them Out” Tour. Fabiano is a retired General Motors employee and United Auto Workers Union member now running a small business part-time. She has lived in the state of Michigan, once considered the automotive capital of the world, throughout her life.

Ms. Fabiano has been an active citizen, engaging in the political process both online as a blogger and on the grassroots level within Michigan. She is among the “pioneers” of the tea party movement, having organized the event held at the State Capitol on February 27, 2009, which occurred simultaneously with those in 40 other cities. Soon after she founded the citizen activist group, Grassroots in Michigan.

Tea Party Express Coordinator, Joe Wierzbicki, extended the invitation to Fabiano, “We were inspired and impressed by Joan’s passion, her diligence and determined efforts to return our country and her state to a Constitutional government. We are happy to have her join our family here on the Tea Party Express bus for our tour through Michigan.”

Joan Fabiano of Grassroots in Michigan says, “I am grateful for the opportunity to meet more of my fellow Michiganders and to introduce them to Grassroots in Michigan’s latest project “Take Michigan Back”. We are reclaiming our rights from the politicians and progressive policies that have brought Michigan down a road towards ruin and economic destruction.”
Fabiano goes on to say, “Not only are we going “Vote Them Out”, but we will replace them with men and women who know that serving is a civic duty and who will govern according to the Constitutions of Michigan and the United States.”

Timeline of Major Provisions in the Democrats

So this is what change looks like…

MARCH MADNESS

A vote to pass the Health Care Bill could come as soon as March 11
MICHGANDERS WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER

Despite the pledge to repeal this by some members of Congress, if this Bill passes, it’s nearly impossible to push back an entitlement once it passes. This Bill truly sends America down THE ROAD TO SOCIALISM

THIS IS IT.
After months of calls, faxes, protests and town halls THIS IS THE FINAL PUSH

The progressives are working hard now to get the Bill passed
WE NEED TO WORK HARDER

Michigan Congressional House Representatives NEED to hear from their constituents!

Calls are best, then faxes and then e-mails

If you call, please ask the person answering his or her name, and use their name during your call. Ask that he/she please add this call as a number to count as AGAINST the Health Care bill.

Give them your name and city.

Provisions for abortion are still in the Bill
“In total, the Senate bill is the most pro-abortion single piece of legislation ever to reach the floor of the House of Representatives,”
said Douglas Johnson, federal legislative director for the National Right to Life Committee.
“The so-called abortion limits that are in the Senate bill are all very narrow, loophole ridden, or booby-trapped to expire,” he said. He cites as an example a last-minute addition to the bill of $7 billion for community health centers, “from which abortions could be paid with no restriction.”

Special Attention to Rep. Bart Stupak, D-Mich. Who along with 11 other Democrat House members have said they will not vote for the health care bill unless it includes more stringent language to prevent federal funding from going toward abortion services.

Call Bart Stupak to encourage to him and his colleagues to continue to hold the line for life and vote “NO” Tell him even if all the provisions for abortion are removed you are still against this Bill.

ALSO:

According to The Hill

The “Cornhusker Kick Back” is out “President Barack Obama’s healthcare reform proposal released Monday eliminates controversial funds given to Nebraska as part of a deal to win the support of centrist Sen. Ben Nelson (D).”

But the ”Louisiana Purchase” is still in. “Obama’s bill, however, does not specifically remove $300 million of Medicaid funds pegged for disaster relief for which Louisiana is the only state eligible.”

And ACROSS THE NATION:

In addition to Michigan Representatives please considering calling, Swing Vote Congressmen PHONE NUMBERS FOR SWING VOTE CONGRESSMEN

Say it Out Loud; We’re the Party of NO and Proud!

The latest charge level against Republicans/Conservatives by the Obama regime, is to label the opposition, “the party of no”

Well what this wrong with that?

Of course anyone who believes in the Constitution would naturally be saying “NO!”

NO to an unconstitutional mandate in a bill forcing every American to buy a service
NO to more unsustainable government orgy of spending
NO to the erosion of personal liberties, by a government take over of individual health care choices
NO to a government bill that mandates right the light bulb or appliance that a citizen must own
NO to the fraud of global warming pushed by the Obama regime, that could cost individual families up to $2,000 per year in increase utilizes
NO to Card check” that robs a citizen of their right to vote privacy
No to appointed “czars”
No to the “taxation with out representation of the so- called stimulus bills
NO to a 1.7 Trillion dollar deficit and growing
NO to government take over of private industries (GM)
NO to every unconstitutional and draconian government control bill that the progressives have thrown out the past year

NO, NO a thousand times NO! a 1.7 trillion times NO!

If you child wanted to get drunk and then drive hot rod and drive would you say yes?
Of course not, because you know that it wouldn’t be in their best interest!

Saying No is in the best interests of your constituents and your country!

So Republicans, Conservatives… own the “NO!”
Rob the Obama regime of a silly whiny accusation! Throw it back in their face! NO is constitutional, NO is right, NO is in the best interest of my constituents, of America, of Americans

Ok are you ready! Say it out loud, “WE ARE THE PARTY OF “NO” AND PROUD!
GOD BLESS AMERICA!!
