I am wondering who is willing to make their voice heard? How many of us REALLY care enough to say it to the ones who can make it different? Please call ALL these Senators and tell them your concerns, what you WANT in REFORM. We like to complain to one another, we like to have opinions but are we willing to put our reputation and name to them? OUR GOVERNMENT is suppose to WORK for us, they are suppose to ANSWER to us...this is democracy. Let them know what the American people want.

i too write to our leaders sending both snail and emails. Very little comes of it most times but once in a while they listen. The thing is your right we all have to do it or nothing will happen. So if any one who reads this who hasn't contacted their State reps really should. I also posted a discussion like this and I wish more people had risen to the occasion and even left a comment. I hope that people really do care enough to do more then complain to the wrong people.

I'd hate to think that we just like to see our words posted here...and really don't give a d*mn about a very real problem. I challege anyone who has or who will contact their Congressmen/women to leave a comment. Otherwise, don't post to this topic anymore. We often feel like they're not listening...judging from the outrage and the statements of our leaders concerning the outrage...I think they're listening. Whether it will make a difference remains to be seen. YOU do the right thing and exercise your right as an American Citizen!

See I feel like I have to say things to them, because If I do not and it happens in a way I do not like then I have let my self down. If I do speak up and it still happens then at least I said my piece and did what I could.

I feel much the same way...guess that's just the way we opinionated people are.
