After a nearly 40-day recess that was anything but restful, House Democrats are returning to work Tuesday still unsettled over pending health-care legislation and sure only that the people have had their say.
They are in almost the exact position they were in when they left the Capitol in late July. Conservatives are still leery of supporting a government-funded, or public, insurance option. Freshman lawmakers from suburban districts remain fearful of increasing taxes for their wealthy constituents to pay for the new measure and await alternatives from moderate Senate Democrats. And progressives, who are demanding the most far-reaching reform since the Great Depression, are still threatening to bring down the legislation if it does not contain a robust version of the public option.

All in favor of giving them another 12 months of paid vacation say aye!
They are back.
“Deeply Divided House Democrats Return to Work — and the Same Set of Problems”
If we could only delay the vote on some of these programs until early next year when the midterm election cycle starts in earnest, then we would really see them blow up.
Hit the phones, faxes, handwritten letters and visits to their in-state offices.
Call and fax DC and ins-state phone numbers. Google their names to get their web site with the phone numbers.
www.Faxzero.com allows two free faxes per day.
Get in their faces - let em know we are still here and that we loathe most of them.
It’s still hard to herd cats, isn’t it?
So....I can harass Legislators w/Faxes 60 times a month for free? Do you know what kind of ad they have on the cover page?
Not by half, you clown congresscritters. We're going to keep having our say all the way up to November 2010.
No idea if they have an ad but you get two free faxes per day. Use they DC and local (in-state) numbers too. Let em know. We all need to keep hammering them especially if we cannot be in DC on the 12th.
Call, fax, handwritten letters, visits. Tell them NO ObamaCare. No compromise if they are Repubs. NO!
To fax to fight against amnesty - go to www.numbersusa.com. They have canned letters and alerts that make it very very easy.
Wish we could add these self absorbed clowns to the unemployment numbers...
The caucus now faces a public that is more skeptical than when House committees began drafting the plan two months ago."
