We could call the House switch board 202.224.3121 and ask to speak to Boehner's office
I like this idea from the comments on Krugman's latest editorial:
"The Republicans just lost the Presidency, lost the Senate, lost some seats in the House, but King Boehner still wants to dictate how things must go.
We cannot let him get away with this. I suggest every concerned citizen call the House switch board 202.224.3121 and ask to speak to Boehner's office. Let him know how you feel. Remind the Republicans that they lost the Presidency and the Senate. We need cooperation, not more intransigence. We need a balanced approach, not ultimatums from the most reviled branch of government (House approval rating of 13%).
Remember, during Reagan's eight years in office (1981 through 1988) the top income tax rates were 50%, 50%, 50%, 50%, 50%, 50%, 38.5%, 33% (up to $149,250, then 28%). And starting in 1986 Capital gains were taxed at the same rate as income!
And when Clinton followed a balanced approach with higher taxes, we had a balanced budget! great job creation!" --- William Fairman

4. Republicans also lost the popular vote in the House. What kind of a mandate is that?
