Congressional House Calls

A Message from the NJ Tea Party Coalition:


Congress will vote on Healthcare Reform this week. Today, we have sent 2 busloads to Washington, DC for a "Congressional House Call"

If you were unable to attend the trip to Washington, please consider making a “Congressional House Call” locally. Tell Congressman Rothman and Senators Lautenberg and Menendez to vote NO on the Obama/Pelosi/Reid health care takeover. The goal is simple: today, activists like you show up at key Senate and Congressional offices in your state with your own message telling them to keep their "hands off your health care."

The procedure will be: Arrive, go into the office and register your opposition in writing. As we do not know how many people can participate during the work week, consider putting your request in writing ahead of time if you are pressed for time. If you cannot visit, please FAX your letter or CALL during the afternoon beginning at noon. A FAX is more effective than an email. A personal visit is more effective than a FAX.

If you need help composing a letter, several letters have been written that you can use “as is” or as a template for you to personalize.

Many who intended on visiting local offices have made the trek to Washington. We do not have a “group” attending, but please attend with a friend or as an individual. The suggested schedule is as follows:

12:00 noon

Congressman Steven Rothman

Hackensack, NJ Office

25 Main Street, Suite 101

Hackensack, NJ 07601


201-646-1944 (fax)


Congressman Scott Garrett

266 Harristown Road Suite 104

Glen Rock, NJ 07452

(201) 444-5454

(201) 444-5488 (fax)


1:30 p.m.

Senator Bob Menendez

One Gateway Center, Suite 1100

Newark, New Jersey 07102


973-645-0502 (fax)


Senator Frank Lautenberg

One Gateway Center

Newark, New Jersey 07102



973-639-8723 (fax)

If you cannot make both location and times, at least show up at ONE. If you are not from the immediate area, go to: for your congressional representative and their office nearest to you. Time grows short and opportunities to make a difference are important especially now.

super job: if you have the time, grab your fam, friends, neighbors, co-workers and ride down to our Capitol that WE own,tomorrow and Saturday, and stroll the halls like these cool folks did today, and MAKE those elitist creeps HEAR that we do NOT want this monstrosity!
