Gird your loins, peeps, when the phone rings today


On Monday, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee will use robocalls in 60 districts held by Republicans as part of the DCCC's "We Don't Quit" campaign. 

Of the 60 districts the DCCC will be running robocalls, five are in New York and two of them are right here in central New York: The 24th and 25th Congressional Districts held by Rep. Richard Hanna and Rep. Ann Marie Buerkle, respectively...

Here is a sample script of the call, from Iowa's 4th Congressional district:

"Hi, this is Travis calling on behalf of the DCCC. Congressman Tom Latham and Speaker Boehner would rather our economy default just to protect tax breaks for Big Oil companies and billionaire jet-owners. Republicans quit negotiating with President Obama on raising the debt ceiling.

"This is serious. Latham's billionaire buddies will be ok. But we will pay the price if government can't pay its bills. Our Social Security and Medicare benefits are at risk. Interest rates would spike for our credit cards, car loans, and mortgages. Our 401(k) retirement accounts would drop. And, gas and food prices would skyrocket.

"Enough is enough. Call Congressman Tom Latham at (641) 357-5225 and tell him not to gamble our future to protect tax breaks for Big Oil and billionaires...."

You get the picture. Don't wait for "Travis" to call you.  Richard's contact information is here—click on "Contact me" in the menu at the top of the page. Call him and tell him to hold the line.
