Federal Level

Contact your Elected Officials

Your elected representatives need to hear from you – they should, after all, be working for us, not the other way around. Nothing is more effective than an old fashioned letter, followed by a phone call, and then email. Reach out to your Representatives, tell them how you want to see ObamaCare fully repealed, and how you expect them to do whatever they can to defund, deauthorize, and otherwise slow and stop the imposition of ObamaCare on our health care and freedoms.
