The Resolution is House Res. 554, amending the House Rules requiring legislation and conference reports to be available on the Internet 72 hours before consideration. If this resolution is approved by the House, all bills — including H.R. 3200 will be placed on the Internet for all to see for three days before the bill can be voted on. If we succeed, Americans can finally separate fact from fiction. Joe Wilson explained a process called a “discharge petition.” Where if 218 Representatives sign the petitionit would force the speaker to bring the resolution to the floor. Contact all Democrats, all Republicans and urge them to sign the discharge petition. This petition is named after Representative Greg Walden (R, Oregon) who is sponsoring the petition. Currently, 178 members of the House have already signed the petition and we all need to contact our Representatives to have them sign that petition. (The Clerk of the House has a webpage with all the signatories to the petition at http://clerk.house.gov/111/lrc/pd/petitions/Dis6.... currently posted.)

Please keep bumping this - it is really important. . . I sent it to my address book so please pardon the references to wacked out left wingers. . .I really am not talking about you guys/gals. Cindy I went to a town hall meeting last night with our (great) congressman Jim Jordan and found out some information that I need to pass on - even to you wacked out left wingers ;) I believe, republican, democrat, independent, libertarian, Martian or whoever would agree that any bill brought before congress (and the senate) should be read by our representatives, and if they want to, read by the American people. After all it is our lives that these bills affect. There is currently a discharge petition (see definition below) before the House, it is House Res. 554 which amends the house rules to require legislation and conference reports to be available on the Internet 72 hours before consideration. Please read below. I am reaching out to you and requesting that you contact your congressman and request they sign the petition - Even if we disagree, we should be able to disagee with intelligence -- don't you think? Thanks Cindy

So this was too long the actual meat of the stuff is above.

Is anyone from Ohio here? After watching Glenn tonight I googled Apollo Alliance and Ohio - and came up with this Apollo Alliance

Apollo Announces Formation of Ohio Affiliate

Coalition Will Promote Clean Energy, Good Jobs Economy in Ohio

SAN FRANCISCO – The Apollo Alliance today announced the official formation of its Ohio affiliate, a broad coalition of labor, environmental, community and business leaders that will promote policies and projects to help revitalize Ohio as it transitions to a clean energy, good jobs economy.

Since its founding in 2003, Apollo Alliance has worked at the local, state and national levels to catalyze a clean energy revolution that will put millions of Americans to work in a new generation of high-quality, green-collar jobs by promoting investments in energy efficiency, clean power, mass transit, next-generation vehicles, emerging technologies, and clean-energy education and training. Apollo has had a presence in Ohio already, partnering with the think tank Policy Matters Ohio to position the state as a leader in the burgeoning clean energy economy.

Despite coping with nearly 11 percent unemployment and the loss of tens of thousands of manufacturing jobs in recent years, Ohio’s world-class manufacturing infrastructure and workforce are poised to make the state a leading provider of parts for renewable energy equipment and green-collar workforce training. With strategic investments in renewable energy and energy efficiency manufacturing – as called for in the Apollo Green Manufacturing Action Plan (GreenMAP) and included in the House-passed American Clean Energy and Security Act (ACES) – Ohio could gain thousands of well-paying building-material and energy-efficient appliance manufacturing jobs, as well as jobs in finance, transportation, installation, and other related sectors. This is why Sen. Sherrod Brown introduced legislation to support domestic manufacturing, which the Ohio Congressional delegation worked to incorporate into ACES.

“We are thrilled to welcome our new Ohio affiliate into the Apollo fold,” said Phil Angelides, Chairman of the Apollo Alliance. “We’re on the verge of making an historic leap from a country than runs on fossil fuels to one that runs on clean energy. To realize this transition, we’ll need to build on the great work of local groups like Policy Matters Ohio with a strong, on-the-ground organizing presence.”

“Ohio is taking the lead in pushing for a green energy economy that supports domestic manufacturing,” said Amy Hanauer, Executive Director of Policy Matters Ohio. “Ohio’s leaders in Congress and the U.S. Senate are focused on supporting a carbon cap and making it work for employers and workers in our industrial heartland.”

The Ohio Apollo Alliance steering committee consists of: Sara Letourneau, Labor-Climate Project Regional Program Manager for the Blue Green Alliance; Amy Gomberg, Program Director at Environment Ohio; Terri Burgess-Sandu, Executive Director of Hard Hatted Women; David Rinebolt, Executive Director of Ohio Partners for Affordable Energy; Amy Hanauer, Executive Director of Policy Matters Ohio; Mark Batson, Executive Director of Policy Bridge; Harriet Applegate, Executive Secretary of the North Shore AFL-CIO; Tim Burga, Chief of Staff of Ohio AFL-CIO; Sam Chilia, International Vice President of IBEW; Bob Hopkins, President and Founder of Empire Die Casting; David Beach, Director of the GreenCityBlueLake Institute. Committee advisors include: Brian Kaiser, Green Jobs Coordinator for the Lucas County Workforce Development Agency; Courtney D’Oreo, President of Common Wealth Services, Inc.; Kelly Kupcak, consultant; and Kerrie Carte, Development Specialist at WSOS Community Action Commission, Inc.

Ohio joins more than a dozen state and local Apollo affiliates around the country. The Alliance is particularly strong in the Midwest, where affiliates in Indiana, Michigan, Missouri and Wisconsin are already working to ensure a just transition to a clean energy economy.

A just transition to a clean energy economy? What does that mean? I want them OUT of my state.

Enough.

You are an outsider? Here? If that is true, then I do not belong here.

The word is getting out. The townhalls ARE making an impact. I haven't heard any "birthers" at townhalls. I, don't watch any news channel besides Fox though, because I can't stomach the rest of 'em. But I see the townhalls making a difference. I see the Tea Party Express making a difference. We just need to continue to get the message out - no more spending, no healthcare 'reform' in any way shape or fashion, none, nada. . . not cap and tax, no 'another' stimulus. No more spending.

Are you going to DC?

It may not be a victory but it certainly doesn't hurt morale. . . there is a lot to be done but it is a step in the right direction.

See you in DC!

They are using lies and distortions to distract and divide. Er. . . I guess that means that his own words are lies and distortions? He cannot hide from his own words. He ran from them but he cannot hide. That is 1 down 44 plus the stupid legislation to go. . . keep working, it isn't going to be easy but with Glenn, Rush, Michelle, Laura, Mark, Ann, Sarah and the 912ers it can be done.

I listened to the President on Bret last night and he indicated that Bibi would be able to get it done - peace talks.

I will pray that he is not the one.

Article from the Washington Post:

An emerging consensus among a bipartisan group of senators is poised to shift the dynamic in the congressional debate over health-care reform and could lead to a final product that sheds many of the priorities that President Obama has emphasized and that have drawn GOP attacks.

Three Democrats and three Republicans on the Senate Finance Committee are expected to wrap up their arduous multi-week talks in the coming days, and Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) said he expects a panel vote before the Senate recess, which will begin Aug. 7.

Assuming the fragile committee coalition holds, the legislation it produces would scramble the reform landscape by introducing policy ideas that have their origins in the political center. The bill is bound to disappoint liberals. But with prominent GOP backing, it also could prove more difficult for Republicans to reject out of hand -- the approach they have taken to the House bill and a second Senate version, written by the health committee.

The finance panel's legislation is expected to include incentives for employers to provide health insurance for their workers, rather than a more punitive coverage mandate. The committee is also likely to endorse narrowly targeted tax increases, rejecting a controversial tax surcharge on wealthy households that the House adopted and limits on deductions for upper-income taxpayers that Obama is seeking.

GOP negotiators rejected from the outset the kind of government-run insurance plan that Obama and most Democrats are pushing for in an attempt to inject the health-insurance market with pricing competition. Instead, the committee would create coverage cooperatives modeled after rural electricity providers.

As House negotiators continued to work late Tuesday evening on breaking an impasse on their version of the bill, the bipartisan Finance Committee negotiators emerged from another meeting insisting that no final decisions had been made about the contents of the legislation. But as details trickled out, none of the components appeared ready-made for GOP opposition. Negotiators are scrubbing every provision for unintended consequences that could negatively affect small businesses or middle-class families, both of which Republicans say could be harmed by the other bills moving through Congress.

"What we do obviously would be important to our Republican conference," said Sen. Olympia J. Snowe (Maine), a member of the GOP team, along with Sens. Charles E. Grassley (Iowa), the ranking Republican on the finance panel, and Mike Enzi (Wyo.), the senior Republican on the health committee. Snowe said the primary goal of the negotiations is a bill that can draw Republican votes.

ACTION:

Please call & let these right's pilfering politicans know that as Free-Thinking, Sovereign Individuals -- goverment mandated health care is NOT our cup of tea! Call and call often!!

It can, but I am hoping that it doesn't! Yes pink slips are appropriate and telling them which moving companies they can use is even better. Let's find some conservative moving companies and send them some business. . .
