7. I know both out local delegates. I see them at least monthly.
One of them is the state senator from my district, who is on the state senate health committee; his wife is a physician, and they are both strong supporters of universal health care. The other is a member of the county Dems education committee, which I chair. She and I, along with the other two members of the committee, have been active in getting two public health care forums locally and were the ones responsible for a well-attended free showing Sicko to the public last fall.

I'm a psychologist by profession, and very active locally and in the state with a number of doctoral-level providers in agitating for universal health care.

Now just what is it you want me to be doing?
