Rep. Perlmutter, Are You Listening?
This is the email I just sent to Ed Perlmutter.
I wanted to let you know that I, along with many of your constituents, oppose both this current version of health care reform and the maneuvers being used to push it through. This is not what democracy--even a representative democracy--should look like.
While I do support responsible health care reform, this is not the way to achieve that goal.
I pledge to you this: I will not vote for any elected official who votes for this health care reform bill.
I have no idea how many of these things they read. I have no idea if they are truly listening, but I do hope that our representatives are listening. While I know that many of my friends occupy the opposite political space on health care reform, and I hope that they are playing their part in our system, but I hope like hell that this thing dies.
For some of the reasons why, read this.
