The government is in its third day of the shutdown for the most part and our Congressmen are being pressured to cave in. We hear on regular news channels how Republicans are to blame for making things hard for America.
Are you aware the Republicans are trying to fund EVERYTHING in the government EXCEPT Obamacare? It is Senate Majority Leader Democrat Harry Reid and President Obama who REFUSE to do ANY compromising with the Republicans. Democrats have rejected any and all offers Republicans have made in the budget bill.

On Tuesday, October 1st, EWEB Commissioners will vote on 3 options regarding the much discussed 26 million dollar smart meter contract.
From Senate Conservatives, Sept 27, 2013
Earlier today, the United States Senate voted to fund Obamacare.
There were 25 Republicans who betrayed their principles and voted for cloture, giving Democrats the power to implement this terrible law.

Contact the senators on this list and tell them to OPPOSE CLOTURE - they vote on this tomorrow.

From WND - While President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry are trying to make the case for a U.S. attack on Syria, the Oregon Republican Party is making its case – succinctly – for Congress to block military action.

The resolution reads, in its entirety:
