Pls Call Reid's Office NOW!
Senator Harry Reid
202-224-3542


Here's the suggested message:

"I'm calling to ask Senator Reid to honor Senator Dodd's hold on the Intelligence Committee's FISA reform bill.

I do not support any bill that includes retroactive immunity for telecommunication companies who helped the Bush Administration spy on Americans. I'm counting on Senator Reid to stand up to President Bush and for the Constitution."

1. Whats the point?
Dont get me wrong, if you want to call more power to you. I just dont personally see the point, he's already decided on what he is going to do and you arent going to change that.

5. I don't think he cares
Unless you live in Nevada, there isn't much that you can do to get him worried. The only thing that might get him to do the right thing is for a large group of voters from Nevada to tell him that his days as a senator are numbered.

But it can't just be regular voters, it has to be the money men.

Failing this, Reid will just piss on the Constitution just like his buddy George!!!!!

4. Because DU is a place where activists congregate
Sorry that you feel so defeated.

He may not change his mind but he'll know how Dems he displeases. Minus you, of course.
