Hello Fellow Democrats,
As many of you know, the US Congress is in recess during the month of August. So this gives our Senators and Representatives an opportunity to meet with their constituents and have a healthy civil debate about the Health Care Reform Issues and other Issues important to their constituency. As you may recall, this is what our President, Barack Obama, has called for. Virginia Foxx, Congresswoman, who represents the people of the 5th District, rolled into Winston-Salem and to the Golden Corral this morning with a bus loaded with outsiders, people from "Who knows where," to rally against the Healthcare Reform measures being presented by our Democratic Party. These Healthcare Ideas will benefit everyone by providing for a Public Option to give some competition to the Insurance Companies and other Healthcare agencies. Competition will make the cost of insurance come down, thereby helping reduce Healthcare Costs, which people from both parties know is needed. But Virginia Foxx, instead of holding roundtable discussions, including people from both parties, to discuss the issues, chooses to let the insurance companies, who have given her so much money, finance huge busses to bring along her supporters, anti Healthcare Reform People. Foxx doesn't even bother to inform all of her constituents, especially those of us who are pushing President Obama's Healthcare Reform Measures, when she will be in town. She only "speaks to the choir," such as this morning over at the Golden Corral in Winston-Salem.
As reported in the Davie Enterprise, last week, Foxx will be speaking at the Masonic Picnic, behind the Brock Center for Performing Arts, at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, August 6. I'm telling you this so you can be prepared for a large number of her followers to pounce upon our little town. We need a huge group of supporters, for our cause is very great! I have applied for a permit, which will allow us to assemble, have signs and voice our disappointment with the rhetoric that Foxx has been using to scare seniors and claiming that every American has access to healthcare. Having and access are not the same!!! I should be receiving a call this p.m. or early a.m. to pick up the permit. (Just got the permit, that's a relief!) The picnic is on private property, but as in the past, the public is invited to attend. The parking lot behind the Brock Center, where we will be organizing for our protest, is town property; hence, the need for a permit. We can go onto the picnic grounds, but if we are asked to leave, we will do so in a very civil manner.
Please forward this message to all your Democratic friends in and out of town. I don't know if there's ever been a protest in Mocksville or not, but if ever one were needed, it is NOW! So bring your signs, supporting Health Care Reform, to the parking lot around 10:00 a.m. Please forward this message to all your Democratic Friends so we can have a large group of supporters. Make those signs. Few large words to make our point, such as "SUPPORT OBAMA'S PLAN" or "HEALTHCARE REFORM NOW."
Thanks for all your help and support!
