If folks are concerned that the Democrats are going to cave on the so-called "fiscal cliff", let

your President, Senators, and Representative know how you feel.

3. My new Senator knows exactly how I feel and will back me up to the end ...

... the other will stumble after the billionaires who control his party, trying to pick up a few of their crumbs.

Watch as bright star Tammy Baldwin exposes the fraud that is Ron Johnson. We still have four more years of his corruption and ineptness to look forward to, but can also expect Tammy to lead, Progressively, from the very front.

4. Your Senator must not be Durbin,

 

a Senator who I repeatedly voted for.

Notwithstanding his knowledge of how many of us feel, he's still pushing for the "Grand Bargain."

5. Lets see

called President Obama, Senator Gillibrand, and Senator Schumer again this morning. Had already called them and wrote them emails the minute "fiscal cliff" talk started up again right after the election.

Whether they will listen who knows I've done my part. It's now up to them to live up to their promises.

I can't really see writing or calling Reed. Technically he is still my House Representative but that's a joke. When I wrote him last year, I got a form Republican propoganda letter that had nothing to do with what I was actually writing him about. He got redistricted out of my area for the next congress, so he probably cares even less about what I have to say than he did then. So it would be about as productive as this.

8. The Democratic politicians really don't need help to know

 

what the obviously right thing to do is. Cop out and fail.

10. Fair enough.

 

The reemergence of the "Make me do this" excuse that I've been seeing more of lately, which purposely shifts the blame from the failure of empowered Dem leaders to the liberals, has made me a bit edgy.

11. They still need to hear from us??

As if they don't know where we stand, after everything that has been said and done for the last few years? And they still don't know? They need to hear from us again?

12. What...

.. makes you think we haven't already? I only speak for myself, but I've called and wrote all of the above. Not just about the current issue, but MANY times before. Not that it made much of a difference that I can see, as I don't have thousand$ or million$ to drop into their campaign warchests. That however, doesn't stop me from at least trying.
