Mineral Point and Gammon Road: Honk if you want health reform, but that's just the beginning
We honked and gave a thumbs-up, but it's going to take more than that. Members of Congress are cobbling together the final bill while trying to keep from tripping over all the health and insurance industry lobbyists. Call your Congress peeps and help them grow a spine. Remind them they're in Washington to serve the needs of the public, not of the special interests. Remind them there's an election coming next year, and that we have long memories. It probably wouldn't hurt to tell the Democrats that a majority party that blows the big issues doesn't remain a majority party for long.
