From Phyllis Schlafly and Eagle Forum: House Votes TODAY: Time to add a 51st star? The House votes around 2:00 PM TODAY. Call your Representative NOW and tell him to vote NO on H.R. 2499!
A few hours remain for you to light up phones to stop the stealth Puerto Rican statehood bill! We alerted you at the beginning of the week that the House would vote on the Puerto Rico Democracy Act (H.R. 2499) - a bill that rigs the referendum process to favor Puerto Rico being admitted as the 51st state - but, there is still time to get your phone calls into your representative's office!
This issue was put in the national spotlight yesterday, when national news radio and TV host Glenn Beck sounded the alarm on the stealth Puerto Rican statehood lobby and explained why this bill must be voted down and defeated today on the House floor:
LISTEN to Glenn Beck interview Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) on Puerto Rican statehood and the Fundamental Transformation of America. (See below.)
This an information-only alert, so we ask that you take a few moments today to pick up the phone and CALL your representative and tell him to VOTE NO on H.R. 2499 today! Just a few hundred calls into the key target offices will bring down this bill! This vote will be close, so it is critical that your elected officials hear from their constituents. Even though it may not seem so, phone calls and constituent input does matter, especially to this list of Republicans.
Please check this list of target Republican Members of Congress to see if your representative is listed. If so, call them!
In addition, the following Republicans also need grassroots pressure to vote NO:
Diaz-Balart, Lincoln (FL)
Diaz-Balart, Mario (FL)
Capitol Switchboard: (202) 224-3121
Update on the vote is here.
