  [Grassroots Group Name] to join thousands of Americans in
        making Congressional House Calls this Nov. 5
[Group Name] will be joining with Patients First, a project of Americans for Prosperity,
to make Congressional House Calls this Thursday, Nov. 5 to urge [Congressional
member’s name] to vote “No” on the proposed health care reform bill now before
Congress.

Thousands of Americans across this nation will be participating in these Congressional
House Calls at noon on Nov. 5, the day before the proposed health care reform bill is to
go to a vote before Congress.

Those visiting [Congressional member’s name]’s office on Thursday will be bringing
copies of signed petitions urging [Congressional member’s name] to support the
following reforms instead:

   -   Ability to purchase health insurance across state lines, which creates more
       competition and more options for patients.
   -   Lawsuit abuse reform, which would avoid extra procedures or “defensive
       medicine” which drives up costs.
   -   Tax credits for all incomes, which levels the playing field so that all Americans
       get a tax benefit for buying health insurance, not just those who get insurance
       through the workplace.

Time: Noon
Date: Thursday, Nov. 5, 2009
Location: District office of Rep. [Member’s Name], [District office address]
