DON'T EVER LET ANYONE CONVINCE YOU THAT E-MAILS AND PETITIONS ETC. DON'T WORK.
HERE'S JUST THE LATEST EXAMPLE THAT THEY CAN:
This Thanksgiving, we have something to truly be thankful for - YOU! A couple of weeks ago, I asked you to sign a petition to my Senator, Tom Coburn, demanding that he release his inexplicable hold on an important veterans spending bill. Well, over 13,000 of you signed, and just a few days ago, Senator Coburn caved to you, released his hold, and the bill passed unanimously!
Your efforts didn't go unnoticed. The Military Times newspapers immediately wrote about your show of support for veterans. You can read that story here - http://www.armytimes.com/news/2009/11/military_akaka_coburn_veteransbill_110609w/
Because of you, veterans will see an influx of important funding - appropriations that will go towards providing caregivers to the seriously
wounded veterans, women veterans' health, mental health, care for rural veterans, and more. Thousands and thousands of veterans, from all eras, will benefit because of your efforts. It's a huge deal.
So, on behalf of all of us at VoteVets.org, I wanted you to know that we're forever thankful for your help. And, we wish you and your family a very happy and healthy Thanksgiving.
