Excellent sidebar, Jim! I love it. I should do the same on my blog. I don't know how much good it would do here in Texas, though. I feel pretty out-numbered.
Thanks for the list of addresses of our Illinois representatives and senators. I think a letter is in order.
@ Lesley... Yes, I know the feeling as well but don't give up hope. The thing about these people is they are "bought and paid for" by the health care industry and the multi-national corporations. @ Rae... Good for you Rae, I hope things work out and your rep. responds like mine (Deb Halvorson of 11th District) did with a positive letter supporting health care reform.I saw a great suggestion on "twitter" of all places to knock these "thugs" down at the town halls across America.Simply ask them to produce an ID showing they actually live in the district of the town hall meeting for health care reform they are attending and if they cannot show they live in said district... NO ENTRY into the town hall meeting. Problem solved!Thanks both of you for sharing.
