OKaayyy, I totally slept in and almost missed this, flu has really gotten to me. Enough about me, time is of the essence so I’m just copying and pasting from my email…
Arthritis Act Scheduled for Floor Vote Today!
Call your representative this morning
The US House of Representatives has scheduled a vote expected today, on the House floor on HR 1283, the Arthritis Prevention, Control and Cure Act.
Thanks to all of you for your hard work these past 5 years, but your work is not yet done. We need to make sure that if a recorded vote is requested and taken on this bill that 2/3 of the Members of the US House of Representatives vote YES. Being a co-sponsor of the arthritis bill does not guarantee a Member of Congress will vote YES when it reaches the floor, nor does a non-co-sponsor indicate he or she will vote against it. For those of you with Members of Congress who have not co-sponsored but have indicated they would vote yes when it reaches the House floor, now is their chance to support the bill.
PLEASE CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVE THIS MORNING AND ASK THEM TO VOTE YES ON HR 1283, the Arthritis Act.
Offices will be open from 8:30 am- 6:00 PM EST. We need all of you to please call the Capitol switchboard at (202-225-3121) or call your Member directly and ask him/her to VOTE YES tomorrow on the Arthritis bill, HR 1283.
Copy and pasting over. I’m going to add the link to find the number for your own representative here. It’s the action alert page and just type your zip code in the box on the right and it’ll tell you who it is and all of their stats.
Weee hooo! Let’s keep our painful fingers and toes crossed! OK, I’m going to go call
