Okay so I know I sound like a broken record but it's important to keep repeating myself because it's not over til it's over...healthcare reform that is.
Here is Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich, talking about what YOU can do to help make sure this healthcare reform bill INCLUDES a public option (Hint: It involves more than tweeting your frustrations, telling your friends how much you think Obama and the Democratic Congress are a disappointment, and yes even blogging).
Honestly, if you don't do anything and this doesn't get done you will only have yourself to blame (I mean that in the nicest way possible). No more words. No more pontificating.
At least if you have something to say, put it in an email to Congress or call and tell your elected representative and not just the person next to you.
Contact information for everyone in Congress below (see now you don't even have the excuse that you don't know how to get in touch with them):
Call Congress using the Organizing for America website
Email your Senator
Email your Representative
Don't have time to write an entire email? Tweet them! (Okay so I know what I said above but isn't it better to tweet your frustrations to them instead of just about them? Duh.)
Oh and one more thing, even if you don't have time to contact them yourself, maybe in place of your daily email rant to your co-workers and friends, send the hyperlink above and encourage them to contact Congress. Every little bit helps.
I am now stepping down from my soap box...
Update: Even if you aren't motivated to do anything because I've written in this post, do so because President Obama is asking you to.
Goal for the week is 100,000 calls to Congress using the OFA link above.
