Do you have 2 minutes to spare before noon today? [ALERT]

Must Call Congress Today
Today the 113th Congress will be sworn in today, and we need your help this morning to help us push for a secret ballot when they elect the Speaker of the House.  The House is set to meet at 12 noon today, so we need to make as many calls between now and then as possible.

Why?
We have seen a recent purging of fiscal hawks from key committee positions and we will continue to see it so long as leadership has the ability to count heads of those who simply have stronger principled conviction.

Call now —
WNY:

Louise Slaughter:
(202)225-3615

Brian Higgins
(202)225-3306

Tom Reed
(202)225-3161

Chris Collins is new, will have a number soon, but not soon enough to call today.

Around the State:
You may also call the Capitol Switchboard at
1-866-220-0044,
Be directed through the AMA at
1-800-833-6354,
or find your Rep here:

If you are unsure as to what to say, when calling your Rep before noon today, simply say this:

“I am calling to strongly urge the Congressman/woman to advocate for a secret ballot, when electing the new Speaker of the House.  My Representative deserves to be able to vote his/her conscience without fear of retribution from the leadership.”


In 2010, we helped usher in one of the biggest shifts in political power in modern American history. Unfortunately, due to years and years of establishment rule-making set only to protect the leadership in both parties, much of the political power that we sent to Washington was squandered by establishment types blackmailing, bullying, and bribing rank-and-file members to go along to get along.

Your Representatives deserve to be able to vote their conscience without fear of retribution from leadership. We know it is late, but call your representatives now to urge them to push for a secret ballot to elect the Speaker of the House. You deserve it and your Representative deserves it!
