Go Get that Congressional Support!

Congress is in its Easter Recess [no separation of Church and State there, eh?], so here is a two week window to get to your Representative and your Senators and get their agreement to cosponsor the Agent Orange Equity Act of 2009!

Hit them at their offices, go see them where they are scheduled to speak! Talk to their staffers and find out how to get to them, and get an appointment. It only takes about 5-10 minutes out of their schedule to get their support.

You have until April 21st when they return to work, though they are due back on the 20th. Imagine your Senator after returning to DC from a meeting with you. On the 20th he does catch-up work in his office, and schedules a few golf outings with lobbyists. But one of the first things he does is consult with his Chief of Staff and tell him to be on the lookout for the Agent Orange Equity Act of 2009, so he can cosponsor.

That is the kind of effective work we are looking for from all of you. That, and spreading the word as much as poossible, to family, and friends, so that they may do the same work you are on behalf of the Agent Orange Equity Act of 2009.

Turn to, Sailors!


”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
