Crunch Time News!

Okay folks it is now crunch time. Come on out of hibernation and let's get busy with your Representatives and Senators. We got news Thursday that he Agent Orange Equity Act of 2009 will likely be introduced in April.

That's correct, the Agent Orange Act of 2009 will likely be introduced in the House in April.

So, time to renew those old contacts with your Senators and Representatives and get them on board! We need cosponsor pledges, and we need them ASAP.

Make sure you record your responses in the polls at the top right of the page. There are two, one for Representatives and one for Senators.

Your hard work now will pay off if you get enough co-sponsors, especially in the Senate, to overcome a Presidential Veto. That will take more than 2/3 of the votes in both Houses, meaning 67 Senators, and 291 members of the house.

We need to see the poll numbers reach those figures to ensure quick passage of the legislation, and a veto-proof enactment.

Hold their feet to the fire.

Turn to!

”It is a stain on this nation's honor that the Department of Veterans Affairs has become a deadlier and more difficult adversary to the American veteran than any they have ever faced on a battlefield."-- VNVets

"The concept that Agent Orange, and its effects, stopped dead in its tracks at the shoreline is simply too illogical, and too ludicrous to accept. What does that say about the Bush Administration and his Department of Veterans Affairs?"--VNVets

"With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation's wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan--to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace, among ourselves, and with all nations." --President Abraham Lincoln

"It follows then as certain as that night succeeds the day, that without a decisive naval force we can do nothing definitive, and with it, everything honorable and glorious."--President George Washington
