Make the call

Believe it or not, I actually called the office of one of my members of Congress for the first time ever.  I've sent a fair number of emails in my day, but I know that calls are definitely more persuasive.  After consistent goading from Kevin Drum, I decided that Kay Hagan needs to get some calls telling her to publicly come out as supporting a Senate reconciliation bill on health care reform to encourage House Democrats to pass the Senate bill.  It seems pretty clear that if 50 Democratic Senators commit to this, the House will pass the Senate bill and we'll actually have health care reform.  I'd call the White House, too, if I thought it would make any difference.  As of now, I'm very disappointed in Obama.  Hopefully, he can change that tonight, but I have my doubts.  Anyway, if you care about seeing health care reform and have a Democratic Senator, you know what to do…
