Can you please consider sending the below info out to your group's?  
We want to try and flood the Finance Committee with calls Tuesday against the expansion of Medicaid in Ohio.  
We want to get as many groups and people calling so they will be buried with calls when they get a copy of a letter and petition we dropped with Kasich, Batchelder and Faber last Monday against the expansion of Medicaid.

Feel free to edit as you wish.  The goal is to get as may people as we can calling the Finance Committee Tuesday while they see the letter and petition.  I have attached the letter and here is a link for the petition we dropped off ast week....

Dear Patriots,

Last Monday, Tea Party Patriots State Co-Coordinator Marianne Gasiecki delivered a letter against the expansion of Medicaid in Ohio signed on by 25 Ohio Tea Party & Liberty groups across and the petition signed by over 2,600 Ohio residents to Governor Kasich's office.  A copy of the letter and petition was also left with Ohio House Speaker Batchelder & Senate President Faber's office. 

Getting coverage from the local level to across Ohio and from San Francisco to Washington D.C., you can be sure that not only Governor Kasich & the Ohio Legislature knows where we stand, but the country now knows the Tea Party & Liberty groups in Ohio are ready to combat any expansion of Medicaid in our state.

To date, while we have received no direct response from the Governor himself, the Tea Party & Liberty groups in Ohio were attacked by a recent political appointee of Governor Kasich's days after our letter & petition were delivered.

In response to our opposition on the expansion of Medicaid in Ohio under Obamacare, Ohio Right to Life President Michael Gonidakis, who supported provisions that allowed Obamacare to become law, and who was recently appointed to the State Medical Board by Governor Kasich, called Tea Party groups in Ohio, "idealogues that are putting the conservative movement at risk by opposing the expansion of Medicaid and saying to hell with other Ohioans."

It should also be noted that while he claims to have fought against the passage of Obamacare, Gonidakis actively campaigned for and applauded the passage of the Stupak Amendment, which allowed Obamacare to be passed into law.  Now, while on the State  Board he is promoting the expansion of Medicaid in Ohio under Obamacare. 
How do we respond to these border line Obama-like Chicago-style thug politics? We work even harder to defeat the expansion of Medicaid in Ohio under Obamacare!
