    It didn't seem like such an unreasonable request. Before the Senate Finance Committee passes one of the most important pieces of legislation in our lifetime, we (the American people) wanted to see two things:

    * First, the actual language of the latest anti-gun ObamaCare bill.

    * Second, a definitive Congressional Budget Office (CBO) reading of the cost of the legislation, based on its specific language.

    But, incredibly, this simple request is too much for Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, who intends to force the committee to vote on the bill with nothing but a "quickie guesstimate" of the cost -- a "guesstimate" which CBO will have to reach WITHOUT EVEN HAVING ACCESS TO THE ACTUAL LEGISLATION.

    That's right. The committee has virtually finished consideration of the health care bill -- the most important in our lifetime -- AND THERE IS STILL NO LEGISLATIVE LANGUAGE.

    Shouldn't we at least have a cost estimate that is based on what is actually in the bill? Yes, but a full CBO cost estimate would take two weeks -- and this is inconsistent with efforts by liberal Democrats to cram this bill quickly down the throats of the American people.

    Moreover, don't you realize that "legislative language is very complex" and the American people are just too stupid to understand it.

    Well, are the members of the committee too stupid as well? And what about the CBO? Is it too stupid?

    A Third World country would be embarrassed by the sleaze, corruption, and fraud being used to pass the most expansive government intrusion into health care of our lifetime.

    It's time to put an end to these disgusting tricks.

    ACTION: Call your two U.S. Senators. Ask them to oppose any ObamaCare legislation -- at least until we have two things:

    1. The actual legislative language.

    2. A definitive Congressional Budget Office (CBO) reading of the cost of the legislation, based on what's in the bill.

    You can call your two Senators toll-free at 1-877-762-8762.

    You can also use the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center at http://www.gunowners.org/activism.htm to send your senators the pre-written e-mail message below.

    ----- Pre-written letter -----

    Dear Senator:

    I would urge you, in the strongest terms, to resist considering any health care bill from the Senate Finance Committee until we have at least two things:

    * First, the actual legislative language.

    * Second, a definitive Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimate of the cost of the legislation, based on legislative language.

    It has been reported that, incredibly, this simple request is too much for Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, who intends to force the committee to vote on the bill with nothing but a "quickie guesstimate" of the cost -- a "guesstimate" which CBO will have to reach WITHOUT EVEN HAVING ACCESS TO THE ACTUAL LEGISLATION.

    It is unfathomable to me that the committee has virtually finished consideration of the health care bill -- the most important in our lifetime -- AND THERE IS STILL NO LEGISLATIVE LANGUAGE.

    Contrary to Senator Baucus' assumptions, the American people are not too stupid to understand legislation which will affect whether they live or die.

    Neither are the members of the committee nor the CBO.

    A Third World country would be embarrassed by the sleaze, corruption, and fraud being used to pass the most expansive government intrusion into health care of our lifetime.

    Please vote against the legislation under these circumstances.

    Sincerely,

    Olofson Update

    You may recall that Gun Owners Foundation is taking David Olofson's case to the Supreme Court. Olofson was railroaded by the federal government. The feds claim that when David loaned a friend a semi-auto AR-15 that malfunctioned at the range, he was guilty of illegally transfering a machine gun. A major step on the road to the Supreme Court has now been taken, as GOF has filed its Petition for Certiorari. You can read that document at: http://gunowners.com/Olofson-Petition-for-Certiorari.pdf
