health care symbol

Even though I consider myself well-educated and pretty sharp on current events, I give a wide berth to politics here: I keep my opinions to myself. This isn't a political blog...

But, this is one time I feel compelled to say something. I found the story below alarming and upsetting.


I love our system of government. I welcome the discussion and debate that's part of the process. I love my country: we are fortunate and blessed to live here. However, I feel that hiding health care legislation in a stimulus bill is wrong. The way they are trying to get this passed, sneaking it past us, buried deep in a bill that has nothing whatsoever to do with this topic, is un-American.

This legislation will affect every American family in a profound way.

We have already contacted our representatives in Washington. I encourage you to do the same. Please tell them how you feel about this legislation before it's too late.

***Edited to add: To contact Washington, you can easily go to www.house.gov, www.senate.gov. and www.whitehouse.gov. (Click on the search feature for your senator or representative.) They're supposed to represent you...tell them how you feel!***

Could post the process by which you find and contact your representatives?
