12,000 Letters Sent to Congress in Support of the Hearing Aid Tax Credit Bill

Since the unveiling of www.hearingaidtaxcredit.org on April 24, 2008 more than 12,000 letters have been sent to Congress in support of tax credits for hearing aids. More importantly we are seeing results. 13 Reps and 3 Senators (from Missouri, California, Michigan, Texas Minnesota, Mississippi, Indiana, Nevada, Montana, Arkansas, Connecticut, and Maine) have co-sponsored the Hearing Aid Tax Credit (H.R.2329 and S.1410) after receiving multiple personal letters from their constituents. Members of Congress place real value on hearing from the voters who they are elected to serve, and every personal letter increases the likelihood that the Representative or Senator will consider the legislation worthy of his or her support.

We have now received close to 150 print placements on the bill, a PSA at www.healthyhearing.com and a letter in the syndicated column "Annie's Mailbox" (a daily/weekly piece from the 20 year long authors of Ann Landers). Some hearing health professionals are getting OpEd pieces or letters to the editor printed in their local newspapers and many manufacturers are now linking to the website via their own website.
