Bad news :(
This news is no doubt a game changer for Senator Yen. A press release was sent out today confirming that he has been named chair of the Health & Human Services Committee. You read that right. Senator Yen is now chair of the Health & Human Services Committee. He's now the one who will decide which health-related bills get heard and do not get heard in that committee. The ball is now in his court. There is really no doubt that our vaccine exemptions will be threatened this year. The question is when and how fast can we educate that committee? Stay tuned to find out who will be in the HHS committee. Will it be your senator?
So what do we do now?
We increase our membership, we increase our donations, and we increase our volume. We MUST have our voices heard!
1) Continue to educate your friends and family about the tyrannical behavior going on at our state capitol. Continue to tell them about our group. Add people you know and trust to our closed Facebook group. Power in numbers!
2) DONATE! We need $5,000 minimum to fund our Health Freedom Rally in February, printing costs throughout the legislative season, educational events, etc. We have BIG PLANS that will make a lasting impression at the capitol for our February rally and we need to be able to fund it. Join us for our December fundraising event on Facebook here. If you've already donated, THANK YOU!
3) Turn up the volume! Make some noise! The legislative session begins in February. Our Health Freedom Rally is also in February and will give you the perfect opportunity to make some noise at the capitol. Come and join us and get to know your legislators while you're there. We are the "nice guys" so remember to always be nice, but definitely make your voice heard! Our legislators must know that Oklahoma parents will NOT stand by and watch our rights be taken away! Not now, not EVER!
4) Do you have a vaccine injury story or perhaps you were "fired" from your doctor's practice because you decided against certain vaccinations or maybe you didn't agree with the current schedule as it is given? Please email us any stories you have. We are especially interested in any letters they sent you stating they would no longer see you as a patient. We are continuing to collect these stories as this will help us to educate our legislators, especially the HHS committee.
P.S. Have you called Senator Lankford and Senator Inhofe about the 21st Century Cures Act yet? We are still waiting on the final vote. Yesterday, they voted to invoke cloture, 85 to 13 and they had up to 48 hours to discuss after that. They could vote at any time. We urge you to call Senator Lankford at 202-224-5754 and Senator Inhofe at 202-224-4721 and tell them to vote NO on HR34, the 21st Century Cures Act.
