The Responsible Healthcare Reform Pledge

Hold your Senators and Members of Congress accountable for reading any healthcare reform legislation up for vote by having them sign our pledge.

So that all Legislators would have ample time to review the pledge before encountering any publicity, they were all provided a copy of the 'Pledge To Read' for two weeks. We promised each one that we would not release the names of signers until the two weeks transpired. That happened Monday, July 20th...and their time to remain hidden is up.

Hence, since, Monday, July 20th, we've been releasing the names of those who have signed, those who have declined to sign and those who have failed to respond. Since then we have begun targeted publicity campaigns thanking those who have signed and taking to task those who have not. Attached below you will see the current number of Congresspersons who have signed. Please review and if your Congressperson has NOT SIGNED, please contact them to ask them 'Why?'

Letters from Senators

Senator Jon Kyl

Letters from House Members

Representative Erik Paulsen, MN-03
Representative Bob Inglis, SC-04

Total Signers: (as of 7:29 p.m. CST on 9/1/09)

116

All 535 Members of the U.S. House and Senate have received multiple copies of the Pledge by fax, email, regular mail or personal visitation. Any Representative or Senator not shown on the list of signers below may therefore reasonably be classified as having declined to sign. A few Senators have insisted that although they are supportive of our Pledge, they have adopted a blanket policy against signing pledges that prevents their signing ours. Although Let Freedom Ring believes that that they should make an exception for our pledge, because it is narrowly drawn and quite specific, we have agreed to post letters from those Senators in a separate section following the list of signers. You may read the letters by clicking on the Senators’ names.

See if your Congressperson signed on and then call their office to express your approval or disapproval of their actions. Or you may simply call the Capitol Switchboard number, (202) 224-3121, and ask to be connected to your Congressperson.

If you would rather send an electronic message you may find your two US Senator's email contact form by clicking here.  The phone numbers for each senator are also listed there. 

So far, NOT ONE DEMOCRAT HAS SIGNED to 'Read The Pledge'!
