Calls-to-Action

US Senate – (Active) Tell Your Senator to Oppose the World Health Organization’s Pandemic Treaty! As citizens deeply concerned about the future of our nation, we must rally against the World Health Organization’s proposed pandemic treaty scheduled for May 2024. While international collaboration helps combat global health threats, this treaty poses significant risks to America’s sovereignty and ability to respond effectively to crises. Following the Biden Administration’s inadequate response to COVID-19 and the WHO’s mishandling of the pandemic, Americans must take action to prevent further violations of personal liberties and freedoms. Tell your Senator to vote NO on the WHO pandemic treaty!

US Congress – (Active) Stop Non-Citizens from Voting in America’s Elections! The Biden Administration has allowed millions of people to enter the United States illegally and given them a pathway to vote in our elections. This orchestrated effort by the Biden Administration to corrupt our elections and install Democrats as a uniparty must be stopped. Please contact your Congressman or woman today and compel them to stop non-citizens from voting in America’s elections.

Legislation and Policy Support

H.R. 2474 – Strengthening Medicare for Patients and Providers Act

Medicare is a program that provides vital healthcare coverage for millions of seniors; it is critically important that the program be effective and stable. This bill represents a bipartisan effort to address key issues within the Medicare program, aiming to improve patient access to quality care while supporting healthcare providers. According to Representative Larry Bucshon’s (IN-08) press release, “While costs of running medical practices have gone up by 47%, physicians’ payments have declined 26% from 2001 to 2023, when adjusted for inflation, making it difficult for small, rural, and low-income serving practices to stay operational.” This bill “would address payment uncertainty affecting Medicare-participating physicians and avoid a possible physician shortage for Medicare beneficiaries.”

Quote of the Week

“In reality, for those who bother to look, history and experience teach that the biggest dose of skepticism should be reserved for the authorities that seek to influence us and the information they want us to receive.”

― Sharyl Attkisson, investigative journalist in Stonewalled: One Reporter’s Fight for Truth in Obama’s Washington
