Got a call today that made me livid - Peters may vote no on HC
A friend called to tell me she had given my number to someone who had called her from Solidarity House asking if she knew anyone in Oakland County because they got word that Gary Peters was planning to vote no on the health care bill and we need to call his office to pressure him. We must let it be known that people want a yes vote.

Another friend called his office and was told by his staff that he was still reading the bill and didn't know how he's planning to vote yet. WTF? How could he not know yet. This is not what the people of the 9th district elected him for, and if he votes no, a more reliable progressive should primary him.

1. I sent an e-mail yesterday to his office.
I said that progressives were good enough to vote him into office a year ago, and that it was time to repay the favor and vote for much needed healthcare reform. And, I reminded him that my BCBSM premiums for my individual coverage went up 34% this past year, on top of several large prior increases over the past few years.

I don't know if it will do any good, but at least I felt good about myself for voicing my opinion.
