          National Actions:  
             Health:
Watch this chilling video, then act!
We take antibiotics for granted. Strep throat, sinus infection, UTI a quick visit to the doctor, a prescription, and you're feeling better.
Publish your prices!
Tell hospitals to post their prices so we can all find the best service for the most competitive price.

Guarantee that knee, equip that hip!
Tell the top manufacturers of artificial knees and hips to warranty their products! Since a faulty product requires painful surgery to replace, a twenty year warranty is the least we should be able to expect. Demand a 20 year warranty!

             Money:
Big banks: Don't push us around!
Account-closing fees are charged by six of 10 of the nation's largest retail banks, and are designed to keep you from moving your money. The big banks know if it costs you money to close an account, and it's an excruciatingly difficult process.
Get your FREE credit score!
We cleared the first hurdle by getting a bill introduced this week in the Senate to give consumers their credit scores for FREE. Now, we have to get it passed.

             Food:
Stop the end-run on your right to know!
The giant chemical and food processing industries are pulling out the stops to block your right to know. They're pushing a bill just introduced in the House that would block states from implementing their own labeling laws.
Reduce the 4-Mel in soft drinks and improve labeling!
Cola manufacturers already have caramel colors without this potentially cancer-causing chemical -- and they've already replaced it for consumers in California. Tell the FDA to reduce 4-Mel in all colas sold everywhere in the country.
What are they trying to hide?
The overwhelming majority of Americans want to know if your food is genetically engineered. Some 64 countries -- including China, Australia and the entire European Union already require GE foods be labeled.
Trader Joe's: Watch this video and get our meat off drugs
Get our meat off drugs! A half-million consumer signatures are delivered to Trader Joe's flagship store asking for an end to antibiotic-raised meat. Watch what happens!

             Media & Telecommunications:
Congress: Hold Comcast's feet to the fire!
Next week is the first public hearing on Comcast's grand plan to take over much of the nation's cable TV and Internet market. Let's use this opportunity to tell our elected officials in Washington, D.C., that we want this deal stopped cold!
Enough is Enough: No Comcast merger!
It's time we take a stand against huge corporations becoming behemoths, wiping out the competition and sticking it to those of us who have little choice to go elsewhere.

             Other:
Annoyed by Robocalls?
You have new rights, but your rights are only as good as enforcement. Tell the FCC to enforce new robocall rules!
Detergent pods shouldn't look like candy!
Tell the big manufacturers to stop making detergent pods that look like candy, and add a bittering agent so kids will quickly spit out anything they try to eat.

Stand up against Big Oil!
If we can dramatically reduce air pollution and help the environment for an extra penny per gallon of gas, wouldn't it be worth it?

Success Stories:
Kim and EricKim Witczak and Eric Swan have met with Governor Pawlenty and Rep. Jim Ramstad of Minnesota, who became a joint co-sponsor of drug safety legislation in the House.

Dick Lambert
Dick Lambert of Roseville, MN contacted the Financial Privacy Now (FPN) campaign to further educate and encourage members in his community to become aware of issues outside Roseville. Aside from contacting a local AARP and legislators, Dick posted information on the Minnesota security freeze bill on the Roseville Citizens League webpage to get out the word and generate more support on the bill. His web and political savviness helped to invigorate what started off as a bill with limited protections to one of the best security freeze laws in the nation!
