I was feeling a little neglected after President Obama and the rest of the Democrats stopped sending me e-mails. It appears that the fundraiser was over and they didn’t need to ask for any more from me. I have to say I felt a bit used. At least I would, if I had ever sent them any money.
Well, I am glad to see that the Democrats don’t just love me for my money. They also need me to sign petitions.
We told you last week about Republican efforts to suppress the vote nationwide that could prevent 5 MILLION Americans from voting. According to the New York Times, the voter fraud Republicans say they’re preventing simply isn’t an issue. “The only reason Republicans are passing these laws is to give themselves a political edge by suppressing Democratic votes.”
The scary thing is, it just might work. Enough votes could be lost to states like Florida, Ohio, Wisconsin, Nevada and Virginia to hand the Senate – and the White House – to the GOP.
This news really struck a nerve with grassroots activists – we’re nearly halfway to our goal of 150,000 signatures. But we’re missing your name – will you click here and sign?
After you’ve signed, check out our brand new 2012 Election Protection Project website, where you can view maps of affected states, learn facts about the new laws, share information on Twitter and, most importantly, register to vote.
We’re starting to put together our voter outreach plans based on these new GOP laws, and I sure could use your help. Thanks in advance for signing and sharing. We’ll keep you posted on our progress.

I am just outraged that the Republicans are trying to suppress the necro-American vote. Sure the living can show IDs easily enough, but does anyone care about how hard it is for the dead to get identification. They don’t normally drive so they can’t get driver’s licenses. Illegal immigrants also have considerable difficulty in acquiring valid. I will be glad to sign this petition identification. Just because a person is not a US citizen or even alive is no reason to deny them the vote.
Then I got this.
We have to act fast.
House Republicans are set to vote today on a bill that would go even farther than Republicans’ previous efforts to restrict women’s access to reproductive health care.
This GOP bill would allow emergency rooms to refuse women life-saving healthcare. Pundits are calling it the “Let Women Die” act.
We must act immediately to call out the right-wing Republicans behind this assault on women. We’ve set a goal of raising $100,000 for the DCCC Women’s Health Rapid Response Fund so we can hold these Republicans accountable.
Please make an urgent contribution of $3 or more to the DCCC Women’s Health Rapid Response Fund. Your generous support will send a powerful show of grassroots strength against the Republicans’ extreme agenda.
Instead of focusing on jobs or the economy, today’s vote will mark the seventh time this year House Republicans have chosen to undermine women’s access to health care.
First, it was Republicans redefining rape to deny health care coverage. Now, they want to allow hospitals to turn away women in life-or-death situations. Plus, for the first time ever, this bill would restrict how women with private insurance can spend their own private dollars in purchasing health care. It has to stop.
Help us send a message to Speaker Boehner, Majority Leader Cantor, and the rest of the House Republicans that their repeated insistence on restricting women’s access to health care has consequences.
Thank you standing with us.

The fiends!!. They want to deny women needed healthcare, just because the Republicans hate women. I wonder though. This wouldn’t have anything to do with making sure the tax payers are not paying for abortions, would it? No matter. Nancy Pelosi has said the Republicans want women to die on the emergency room floors and I am sure she wouldn’t lie or exaggerate. I’ll send that $3 right away.
- House passes bill barring funding for abortions (cbsnews.com) Hey, I was right. Imagine.
