PRESSURE ON U.S. SENATE IS WORKING! SEVERAL MOVE TO BLOCK HAGEL
It’s coming down to the wire in the battle for Secretary of Defense, and thanks to the continued pressure brought on by concerned citizens like you, we have enough votes in the Senate to stop the Hagel nomination.
|We have momentum on our side, but we can’t let up now. More than ever, we need you to support our “Stop Hagel” campaign. You can do so by doing any of the following:1. Sign our “Stop Hagel” petition HERE.
2. Forward our petition to all your friends!
3. Make a donation to help support our “Stop Hagel” campaign HERE.
Democrats are trying to ram through the Hagel nomination and rush to judgement without getting all the facts and documents from Hagel. What are they trying to hide?
Harry Reid already tried to cause panic by saying that America would be without a Secretary of Defense, but Leon Panetta already said he was staying in office until the Hagel issue is resolved.
Several Senators who were on the fence, like Senator John McCain (R-AZ) had previously said they would NOT participate in a filibuster to stop Hagel, but after so much grassroots activity against Hagel it looks like McCain and others are now willing to go along with the filibuster.
This latest news proves the strength of the grassroots pro-troop movement, and conservatives, to influence policymakers in Washington. It shows that our efforts are having a measurable effect on this nomination process!
Without your continued support, petition signatures, calls, letters, and faxes to these Senators, urging them to stand against Hagel, he might have already been confirmed.
We are having a significant effect on the public discussion, so we must keep up our petition-gathering efforts! If you have not yet signed the petition, do it now! If you HAVE signed, please e-mail it to everyone you know, share it on Facebook, tweet it out, make comments and spread the word all over the net.
STICK TO YOUR GUNS! TELL SENATORS TO HOLD STRONG!
If the Democrats get 60 members to break a filibuster, they can pass the Hagel nomination. So at this point it’s up to the Republicans who need to keep at least 41 of their members solidly prepared to block that vote!
This is a time when Republicans need to stick together, so we must put pressure on those few who might be on the fence and thinking about giving in to the pressure from Democrats to bring this to a vote. The following are 5 Republicans who need to feel the pressure to stay strong against Hagel.
Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) opposes Hagel. Doesn’t support filibuster!
Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO) is against Hagel but not firm on filibuster
Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) says she is “uncertain”
Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) previously against filibuster, but now supports.
Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) is against Hagel but was against filibuster.
We MUST stop Chuck Hagel – for the sake of our troops. We need everyone to keep signing and growing the opposition against Hagel. Harry Reid is looking for the 60 votes he needs to block a filibuster, so we need to to keep the pressure up so all the Republicans stick to their guns!If you have not yet signed the petition, do it now!
