National Center for Policy Analysis and Salem Radio Network Deliver One Million Emails to Congress to Stop ObamaCare

DALLAS, March 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In an unprecedented wave of online opposition to a government run health care system, constituents from all 50 states sent more than one million individual emails to their Congressional members at the urging of the National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA) and Salem Radio Network (SRN). (

"Half a million of these messages have been sent in just over a week and they are still going," said NCPA President and Kellye Wright Fellow John C. Goodman. "This is heartland America speaking out against legislation that will increase health care costs, hurt the economy and raise taxes on the middle class. There are better solutions to these problems."

The One Million Patriots campaign is a joint project of the NCPA and SRN.  This campaign follows the earlier delivery of 1.3 million signatures on the "Free Our Health Care Now!" petition in September, launched by the NCPA and Salem last summer -- the largest online petition ever delivered to Congress.

"We want to educate voters and give them the opportunity to be heard in Washington.  In forcing this health reform through, members of Congress are forgetting their constituents, most of whom strongly oppose this bill," added Goodman.

"From both a programming and policy standpoint, ObamaCare has proven to be the perfect storm for SRN's brand of talk radio," stated Tom Tradup, Vice President of News & Talk Programming for the Salem Radio Network.  "Our partnership with the NCPA and the resources it brings to our nationally syndicated hosts like Bill Bennett, Mike Gallagher and Hugh Hewitt has helped drive listeners from our nationwide electronic town hall to direct political activism generating of one million emails to Congress."

The National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan public policy research organization, established in 1983. The NCPA's goal is to develop and promote private alternatives to government regulation and control, solving problems by relying on the strength of the competitive, entrepreneurial private sector. Topics include reforms in health care, taxes, Social Security, welfare, criminal justice, education and environmental regulation. More than 25,000 documents are accessible for research at

NCPA President and Kellye Wright Fellow John C. Goodman is credited by the Media Research Center as playing the pivotal role, along with former Sen. Phil Gramm and columnist Bill Kristol,  in the defeat of "HillaryCare" -- the Clinton Administration's plan to overhaul the U.S. health care system.  The Wall Street Journal has called Dr. Goodman "the father of health savings Accounts," and The National Journal declared him the "winner of the devolution derby" because his ideas on ways to transfer power from government to the people have had a significant impact on Capitol Hill.
