9. I just e-mailed my Rep and asked him to show some courage
and represent his district :-). This district is rural and poor.

11. My Rep is a freshman Congressman - he votes no on everything
Edited on Thu Mar-18-10 03:35 PM by livetohike
He has a 92% record in voting with his GOP party. I wish I had a Democrat congressperson. When I lived in CA, Darrell Issa was my rep :puke:.

13. They already have the votes. House leadership had simply promised a 72 hour
window before the vote after the final text came out. So that is why we have to wait until Sunday.

36 leaning nos or firm nos. I think we can only allow 37 to vote no. It will be tight.
