America First-Incumbents second

campaign exceeding wildest expectations
Total jumps to 7 million amid media attention

WASHINGTON – With more members of Congress extolling it and the news media reporting on it, the “Send Congress a Pink Slip” campaign experienced its best 72 hours period ever with over one million notices sent, putting the total number of ‘pink slips’ to more than 7 MILLION.

On Tuesday, four members of the House of Representatives hailed the program in a press conference, saying it is getting the attention of elected officials on both sides of the aisle.

The notices, if stacked vertically, would be more than four times as tall as the Washington Monument and almost as tall as the Burj Dubai, a super skyscraper under construction that will stand 2,684 feet tall. Laid out end-to-end, they would stretch 939 miles – from Washington, D.C., to Kansas City, Kansas.

“It’s an amazing feat, to get that many slips to Congress,” Rep. Steven King, R-Iowa, one of the four members at the press conference, told WND. “If you look through them, you can index each one back to an individual. That’s powerful. There is a person behind each one of the slips.”

The number of “pink slips” is staggering, because they weren’t from people who were answering a telephone poll and participating in a survey, he noted.

Each of the participants, he said, “wrote a check to send a message.”

King was joined at the press conference by Reps. Michelle Bachmann, R-Minn., Trent Franks, R-Ariz., and Louis Gohmert, R-Texas.

Bachmann cheered the program on, saying she agrees with the campaign and that it is having a major impact on her colleagues. She said she was surprised that so many pink slips were generated even though most Americans had never heard of the program.

She said it’s clear the message – delivered through a stack of “pink slips” now standing approximately five-feet high in congressional offices – is getting through.

In addition, Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., was interviewed about the campaign by Fox News Channel’s Greta Van Susteren.
