As upset by yesterdays actions there were some shining moments that I feel we can not ignore. 212 Representatives voted AGAINST this Health Care “Reform”. 212 Representatives stood firm for their constituents. You can find a link to the list of these men and women here. At this link there is also information for you to contact each of these Representatives. I recommend calling at least your own (in Delaware’s case it is Mike Castle) and thanking them for taking a stand with their constituents. Let them know that you appreciate them listening to their phone calls, letters, and even paying attention to our rallies. When I called Castle’s office they sounded shocked to hear a “thank you” call. Although we are all currently devastated by this bill’s passage, don’t let these feelings depress you. It is important that you let your own Congressmen know that you are watching what they do.
In the past we seem to have gotten into the habit of sending our Congressmen into Washington and then leaving them to fend for themselves. This may be part of the reason why United States Congress now seems to think it is not accountable to its people. I urge you to remind them now that we will remember both the good and the bad.
You can also take the time to contact Delaware’s Attorney General Beau Biden and ask whether or not the state plans on filing a lawsuit to enjoin the enactment of the health care bill passed by the U.S. House of Representatives on March 21.
Do not let this be a time of remorse, let this be a time for action.
