Skinner: Can we start a "STOP McCAIN PROJECT" at DU?
Advertisements [?]
Here's the idea, please chime in !

Let's harness all the knowledge, ideas, talents, of the DU membership
so that it actually could make a difference.

Let's start a DU STOP McCAIN PROJECT to assist our Democratic nominee.

Here's how it could work:

1. DUers research and develop a campaign idea, provide links, and submit in
a pre-determined format as a post in a separate forum.

2. We establish a contact with the democratic campaign.

3. We consolidate these ideas and submit weekly to the democratic campaign office.


Here's an example (Although the idea doesn't have to be specific to legislation)

TOPIC: Veteran's Affairs

SYNOPSIS: McCain claims to care about veterans. If this is true, why did
he vote against the veteran's supplemental for mental health assistance?

BILL: Bill Number: S 2020

McCAIN VOTE: NO

Official Title of Legislation:

S Amdt 2634 to S 2020: To provide an additional $500,000,000 for each of fiscal years 2006 through 2010, to be used for readjustment counseling, related mental health services, and treatment and rehabilitative services for veterans with mental illness, post-traumatic stress disorder, or substance use disorder.
