44. Putting pressure on Dem Senators....
Well, I am working with my state legislators to find any services, contracts or products being paid for by the state of Pennsylvania & benefiting the constituency's of anti-single payer DEMS!.

I have contacted the democratic state organizations in Maine, NH,VT,CT,Mass., RI,NY,NJ,PA,MD,OH, Michigan & Minnesota.

What I am urging people to do is contact their state reps & urge them to cut off spending in states with anti choice Senators. When products services or contracts are I.D.'d then contact then & let them know they are gonna take a beating cause their senator is working against our interests.

Hopefully we can enrage enough voters in Montana, Nebraska & Iowa to motivate Baucus & Nelson.

Specter & Feinstein are gonna be tough. Specter really wants to keep his job & feinstein does not think she could ever lose hers.

Bottom Line is many of these states are small & the economic might of PA, NY, & NJ ought to be enough to put the screws to them.

Also, contact tourism bureaus & let them know u have cancelled your NOLA vacation due to Mary Landrieu position on universal single payer.

Our household also stopped buying all calif. wines, OJ & fresh produce from there.

I also have been cold calling every person named "Anderson" who lives in MT (i have done about 250#s) to explain to them where baucus gets his money & who he works for.

BTW both baucus & nelsons office told me to fuckoff since i was not a constituent, when i called them back & told them what I was up to, they were not laffing at all!

Specter is in my state but he did aqppear at a health care rally last week.
If he goes for single payer/universal He will have my vote.

If he & the dems double cross me I may work for Toomey just so dem senators would have to listen to his dumb shit for the next few years.
