Stop ObamaCare: Ten Dollars for Tark

Wondering what can be done to stop the ObamaCare trainwreck heading our way? Think you can’t make a difference?  Already contacted your Reps and Senators, and think there’s nothing more you can do?

Au contraire!

Hugh Hewitt is suggesting a very clever iniative to convince Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid just how much the general public (i.e., we the people) do not want the health care reforms being proposed by the Senate. In order to persuade him, Hugh has proposed a three-pronged attack:

  1. Send a $10 donation to Danny Tarkanian, the only declared opponent of Sen. Reid in his upcoming re-election bid
  2. Send an email to Sen. Reid explaining your donation to Tark and why you made it
  3. Send an email to Hugh so that he is able to measure the response

Sounds simple, right? Well, it is simple. Get Sen. Reid’s attention by hitting him where it hurts–threaten to take his job away from him. If enough people do it, either Reid will back off the health care bill (not likely, in my opinion) or he’ll be ousted not only from his cushy Majority Leader spot, but from his Senate seat altogether. And that actually could happen–polls show Tarkanian with a comfortable lead over Reid, 49% to 38%.

So come on, send a sawbuck to Tark, contact Harry Reid and let him know (politely, of course!) how you feel, then send Hugh an email letting him know; and while you’re at it, cc me so we know, too! And spread the word. Help this effort go viral. If voices and money enough are raised, who knows what could happen?

I’ll do it if you will. I did it. You should too.

    You had me at “Send Harry Reid Home.”

    May I suggest that each of us send this url
    https://grandrants.wordpress.com/2009/08/27/stop-obamacare-ten-dollars-for-tark/#comments

    to ten people we know of who are of a similar opinion of Harry Reid… and ask them to do the same and forward it to 10 more and so on?

    I’d love to see this become viral and give Tark a real bundle to compete against Reid. Come on, let’s put Tark over the top!
