Gov. Howard Dean: Alan Grayson Deserves Your Support

Alan Grayson was a terrific Congressman during the term he spent in Congress. As a freshman member of the House of Representatives, he changed the national debate on health care, and made it stick. The Republicans have hated him for it ever since. They spent millions against him, to get him out of Congress in 2010. But now he's back.

Already, the Right Wing has spent five million dollars telling absolute lies about Alan on television. In fact, the ads are so bad that Politifact labeled them as "Liar, liar, pants on fire." 

Alan is one of the smartest people in Congress. He tells the truth. Sometimes people don't like to hear the truth in politics. But boy, do they ever need it, up in Washington! What a bankrupt group of people! 

 

We can have a good Congress. We can make it full of people like Alan Grayson. But we need your money to do it. The Right Wing is going to outspend us by a lot. 

We don't need a lot of money, but we do need your $5 or $10 or $20 or $100, right now. 

On the internet, go on Alan Grayson's site, and let's make this work. 

This is a great country. But you can't make this a better country by teaching people to hate each other. 

Alan Grayson is somebody who gets things done, stands up for what's right, and tells the truth. And boy, do we need people to tell the truth in Washington right now! 

Sincerely, 

Gov. Howard Dean

PDA In Your State

Join "Countdown to Coverage" Share TPP with your Daily Newspaper

CWA devised a simple plan for which they were uniquely suited: drag TPP out of the shadows and into the light - one city at a time - using a medium they understand intimately: Daily Newspapers!

Two CWA members - Dave Felice in Denver, CO and Madelyn Elder in Portland, OR have started the ball rolling. We just need to keep up the momentum leading up to a big day of petition deliveries in January.

Button-ShareTPPWithNewspaper

Step 1 is to send an Op-Ed to your Daily Newspaper.

Sign the Petition - Sen. Sanders Run as a Democrat in 2016

Button-SandersPetition

Sign the TPP Fast Track Petitions

MoveOn.org Petition - Congress Don't Renew Fast Track

Pulic Citizen Petition - Congress Must Reject Fast Track Authority

MoveOn.org Petition - Stop the Trans Pacific Partnership

CREDO Petition - Stop the Massive Corporate Power Grab

 

Hand Deliver a Letter to your Senators or Representative on the TPP

If your Senator(s) and/or Representative is not currently opposed to Fast Track, they may not completely understand all the implications. Nothing sends a stronger message to a Congressional member than a personal visit to a district office by a voter with a written request. Phone calls and emails are incredibly important but nothing gets attention like a personal visit. Our Educate Congress page has information and a sample letter. Print the letter, sign it, deliver it.
