Today we have two things we need to do. First we need to keep the debate over censure for the President going. If you've been following through on the plan we have called, emailed and mailed our Senators. Now it's time to send letters to the editors of your local newspaper.
LTEs are best if they are short - one or two sentences and quickly make your point. (This goes without saying if you've kept it to two sentences.) It could be something as simple as....
Many pundits and members of Congress say it is a bad time to censure the President for breaking the law.
I say it's never a good time for the President to break the law.
The more letters the newspaper receives on a topic the more likely they are to print an LTE about that topic. It is always best to refer either to an article in the paper or another LTE. It is also best to write to your local paper, but write to them all if you have the time.
Lance has made this easy by including a list of NC papers, their, email addresses or web forms in the "take action" section to the left.
The second thing we should do is each take the time to thank Rep. David Price. If you didn't send a thank you to Rep. Brad Miller, we should do that as well. We also need to remember the help that State Rep. Verla Insko was on the Medicaid research. Don't forget our thank you notes!
Let's Get Busy!
