With Congress coming back to Washington in a couple of weeks, it'scrucial for usto do two things: continue the pressure on them while they are home in their districts AND begin preparing for the decisive battle on the health care takeover and cap-and-trade once they are back in D.C.
At Americans for Prosperity, this week our Hands Off My Health Care buses are making over 50 rally stops in Arkansas, Louisiana and Missouri. Since most members of Congress won't do it, our affiliate Americans for Prosperity Foundation is holding town halls with special guest John Stossel across Wisconsin. Next week AFP's Hot Air Tour will be in Montana,the Dakotas and Nebraska as we keep up the pressure against cap-and-trade. On September 12, the Taxpayers March will be occurring in Washington and across the nation.
But once the members of Congress really get down to business in D.C.they'llbe surrounded bylobbyists, the Obama Administration, Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Reid. We know the pressure to sell us out on health care and cap-and-trade will be enormous.
That's why I'm asking YOU to come to Washington, D.C. on October 2 and 3 for Americans for Prosperity Foundation's Defending the American DreamTM National Summit where Americans for Prosperity will sponsor our own Town Hall meeting at the Capitol to keep the pressure on members of Congress.

Newt Gingrich will be our headline speaker along with FOX News contributor Stephen Moore, freedom champions in Congress like Senator Jim DeMint (SC), Congressman Mike Pence (IN), and Michele Bachmann (MN) and many others.
But most importantly, YOU and thousands of fellow freedom fighters will be in Washington during the most crucial moment in the health care and cap-and-trade battle.
Washington's professional politicians and their friends in the national media need to hear from you.
Speaker Pelosivilified us as "un-American." Majority Leader Reiddemonizedus as "evil-mongers." The Obama Administration dismissed us as "astroturf" and "Brooks Brothers" activists full of "manufactured anger."
On October 2 and 3 you can show them who we really are -- grassroots Americans willing to take time away from our families and jobs and communities to come to Washington to stand up for our freedom.
