On February 11, 2009, 911truth.org posted notice "9/11 Health Bill Reintroduced
in Congress–CALL NOW," including this intro:
Rep. Maloney has posted a very useful link at her House website: World
Trade Center Health Registry–Number of Registrants by State and Congressional
District based on June 2007 current addresses. When you call your Representative
to ask him/her to cosponsor H.R. 847, you might mention the number of first
responders from your district, and your state, listed on the Health Registry.
All 50 states are included. Maloney states, "…at least 10,000 people
came from around the country to help in the aftermath of the attacks."
Clearly, this is a national issue and we challenge ANY Representative to give
a valid reason why s/he should not support a bill that provides needed care,
especially for their own constituents!
TODAY, we appeal to you to do this again, now. FealGood Foundation
members and supporters will travel to Washington DC tomorrow to attend a markup
hearing on this bill, and your support will make a huge difference in the response
they get. At this point, the number of Cosponsors of HR847 has grown to 55 (list of cosponsors can be found at http://thomas.gov, enter HR 847 in search bar and click the ‘bill number’ button, then search.); yet the health registry includes registrants from all 50 states.
We need to each make our own Rep aware of this information with just a quick
phone call — "Rep. ____, this is not a ‘NYC issue,’ it’s a national
issue, including some of YOUR constituents!" and direct them to Rep. Maloney’s report showing distribution of registry members.) Please take 5 minutes
and make this call today.
Following is information from FealGood Foundation about the trip tomorrow.
If you are able to support this important organization, please take a minute to do that, as well.
Join us for a Trip to Washington DC
