According to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, the Senate will likely vote today on the so-called “stimulus” plan, now known to have a price tag of more than $920 billion.
CALL YOUR SENATORS!! Implore them to do the right thing today.
Again, like with the vote in the House, don’t depend upon your neighbors to call, and don’t depend upon me to call (I’ve been trying!). It doesn’t take much time. The Senate directory is HERE. Find your guy or girl and ask them to keep the will of the people in mind.
Also like with the House vote, again, I don’t do this type of big-print posting often. But this one, like the House vote before it, is simply too important to not do so.
Over the past few days, I’ve heard from some new friends on Capitol Hill–mostly low-level workers and staffers in several offices spread across the House and Senate–that the phone calls do indeed make a difference. One press secretary told me that, yes, the people answering the phone may sound a little exasperated, but the constant traffic does weigh in on many of our elected officials.
I’ve been trying to call Sen. Specter’s office today, for example, but the phone has been busy for hours. Let’s hope the traffic works in his case.
Regardless, call your senators — Democrat or Republican. Let them know that their re-election is in their own hands today.
