Don't you suppose that it's easier for them (your elected representatives) to ignore you if you fail to speak your mind? Especially if/when they might be listening?
It's a great big stack of paper that someone said is healthcare reform legislation. I have a bucketful of cowpies that I am calling healthcare reform. Is either of the proclamations more believable than the other? Have you read the "healthcare law"? Has your Congressman or Senator? Can he/she tell you where to find the "good" parts?
Sign the petition. Force your representatives to vote on repeal. Un-deem and un-pass, and be held accountable.
