Daily HR 1207 phone/email/fax bomb!!! 7/15/09

The list has grown to 267, but we still have work to do! Looks like two of our targets last week joined on, Yarmuth and Kirkpatrick. Also, Rogers was a target of ours a few weeks ago, I wonder what took the guy so long to finally commit??

Today's Victims: Congressman Mark Kirk R-IL10 and Congresswoman Jo Ann Emerson R-MO8. These two are the only two Republicans left who are not cosponsoring the bill. Let them know!

All Republicans on board!

Wow, Ron Paul just came out with a press release this evening stating that 100% of house Republicans are on board now, meaning these two signed on. Great work everyone!

Called and Faxed

Jo Ann Emerson R-MO8 office said they were getting lots of calls.


Florida Reps

We are at 19 out of 25 Florida Reps now. Thank you all so much! I know the DPers hit Lincoln Diaz-Balart up and he then signed on. Great job! Tallahassee area Democrat Allen Boyd also just signed on. If I know you guys, I bet he was a target too. So, great job on him too!

Now, Dr. Paul is coming to Orlando in 21 days to speak at The Florida Liberty Summit. We would love to tell him we have all 25 Reps on board. I believe all 6 remaining Reps are Dems so we need all the help we can get. To multiply our efforts, we have also made friends with Rep. Alan Grayson's office, the Democrat who grilled the Federal Reserve Inspector and created a YouTube sensation. Without his open letter to his colleagues several weeks ago and recruiting co-sponsors on the floor daily, I think our efforts would not be as multiplied. Yes, we are ignoring his votes we disagree with for now. So, we will keep leaning on his office to get the last 6 Florida Reps. Would you all please consider putting those remaining 6 Florida House Reps on the docket over the next 2 weeks as well?

Thank you.

Kick up

Now what we really need is West Virginia, Virginia, Ohio, Indiana and Wisconsin which will be the hardest

Good job Florida. We got

Good job Florida. We got Lincoln and Mario Diaz-Balart on the same day. Mario signed on right away, but it took Lincoln a little while longer. I am glad they are both on board now though. Hopefully Grayson will keep leading the way, and get the rest of those Florida Dems to sign on. We will help out by targeting them! Do you have their names by any chance?


Anyone have any idea of how many faxes are typically sent on our fax bomb days? Just curious how big the pile of paper is on the floor next to the fax machine :-))

RP R3VOLution

I've always wondered the

I've always wondered the same thing. Considering whenver I look there are over 400 users online, I like to think that at least 100 people send a fax ever day. Hell, it only takes a minute of your time using faxzero. 1 minute doing this can lead to great success!

If you are a Republican Precinct Captain...

then you of all people should contact them!

In my faxes and phone calls I tell them that I am a Republican Precinct Captain in Kentucky and it's in that capacity that I am contacting them. (obviously doesn't work with Democrats).

Yes they are giving precedence to constituents in their districts and they should. They are also Republicans as well and their staffers in their home offices are much more in tune with the local political gamesmanship so that's where I, as a non-constituent Republican Precinct Captain from a different state can have some influence.

Also, find out the contact info for the County Republican Parties in their districts. Start emailing their Chairmen and Vice-Chairmen and ask them for their help. They've got the email contacts of their local Republicans, the vast majority of which have no clue about this effort. Again, you contact them in your capacity as a Republican Precinct Captain.

I did this in Hal Rogers' district and got positive replies from several County GOP Chairmen. Rogers signed on a few days later.

Only Problem

Then only problem is that only 2 republicans remain on the list. People from those states should use this tactic. This will come in handy on future legislation. I think your strategy worked on Hal Rogers.


Sent both. Did you guys do the fax on Yarmuth on Monday? I know you were going to. I wasn't on Monday. Thanks Mike. I really had begun to feel there was no hope for him to sign.

Yup. Yarmuth was a target on

Yup. Yarmuth was a target on Monday.

Can someone please explain

Can someone please explain what the procedure is for contacting someone outside my district? Do I have to use a fake address?

The more explanation, the better, thanks


Just use what ever congressperson's address to send email's as your address, It works for me and I'v gotten many return emails for them so far.

what I do is google

an address in thier district .For instance would google norfolk virginia post office to get a certain list of post offices

Just use....

An address of a friend or associate you know in another state and yes it is done all the time. Make the point very formal

Yes. Use the address listed

Yes. Use the address listed on the particular Congresspersons webpage under their particular district.

Use the congress person's

Use the congress person's address? isn't that a red flag?

Their systems aren't that

Their systems aren't that smart and I would bet that the person on the other end of your email isn't scrutinizing each senders mailing address.

If you read the disclaimer on the Congresspersons site, it says that they can't REPLY to you if you don't live in the district. It doesn't say anything about not reading the emails of people from other districts.

And if it really bothers you... Send a fax.

I just emailed both. I made

I just emailed both. I made it clear to both that each was one of two Republicans currently not cosponsoring the bill. If we make them aware that they aren't playing with their party, they might be more inclined to cosponsor.



It will be a great victory if the house passes...

HR 1207 with at least 290 votes. It will be very difficult for the senate to justify killing the bill in the senate. It would be political suicide for them!

Kirk's excuse??

Could this be one of the reasons Rep. Mark Kirk (R-IL10) is not on board? Does he think it could hurt his chances of taking Obama's Senate seat in 2010?

He's a lover of the Patriot Act, RealID and more... We're gonna have to turn up the heat on this one.

Faxed their local office

I faxed this flier to Emerson's Cape Girardeau office and Kirk's Northbrook office.


Thanks again for everyone's efforts with John Yarmuth. KY House delegation is now 100%. Now have to work on Bunning and McConnell.

I know Bunning had said he

I know Bunning had said he showed interest in the bill. We included him in a phone bomb two weeks ago or so with Lindsey Grahm who also said he was showing interest. Neither have given any feedback yet, so we'll see. By the way, after the 5 cosponsors that joined 1207 yesterday, I think that brings 3 more states to the 100% mark. Kentucky, Nevada, and Arizona! This is great progress!

Lets do this!

Mailed again, time for a round of calls & everyone hit Ohio
