They're at it Again!

Yes, the Democrats brought up SCHP again today. This time they said they will reduce the income to $63000.00, but still fund this social program by putting the cigar business out of business with a 6000 percent tax increase. If you have a Republican congressman that voted for the override, now is the time to call, send e-mails and letters. Keep the pressure on! Here in the Workers paradise of CT, my congressman could care less. But, I still call and send letters etc. Did you see Pres Daniel Ortega of Nicaragua said that if SCHP went through, his country could lose up to 100,000 cigar jobs? This is serious stuff!! Make the calls! Call talk shows ! If this goes through, your favorite B& M will probably go under!!

My congressman is going to be at a Mall in the next town over from mine this morning from 10-12(some type of meet n' greet). I'll be going over after church and giving him an earful over his SCHP votes! He's a Universal health care, big lib Taxocrat guy, so I doubt he'll even hear me.But, what do I got to lose?
