Being from MA can be sort of a let down during big, national progressive battles. Whenever I see the “please contact these legislators” lists, I tend to scan through, just to catch a surprising name from some OTHER state.
Well, imagine my shame when such a list appeared on DKos today:
Your phone calls are ESPECIALLY important if you are represented by one of these potential holdouts:
Harry Mitchell (AZ-05), Gabrielle Giffords (AZ-08), Marion Berry (AR-01), Dennis Cardoza (CA-18), Jim Costa (CA-20), Betsy Markey (CO-04), Laura Richardson (CA-37), Allen Boyd (FL-02), Suzanne Kosmas (FL-24), Dan Lipinski (IL-03), Melissa Bean (IL-08), Joe Donnelly (IN-02), Brad Ellsworth (IN-08), Baron Hill (IN-09), Ben Chandler (KY-06), Michael Michaud (ME-02), Stephen Lynch (MA-09), James Oberstar (MN-08), Ike Skelton (MO-04), John Adler (NJ-03), Harry Teague (NM-02), Michael McMahon (NY-13), Scott Murphy (NY-20), Dan Maffei (NY-25), Eric Massa (NY-29), Bob Etheridge (NC-02), Heath Shuler (NC- 11), Steve Driehaus (OH-01), John Boccieri (OH-16), Kurt Schrader (OR-05), Jason Altmire (PA-04), Chris Carney (PA-10), Tim Holden (PA-17), Stephanie Herseth-Sandlin (SD-AL), Jim Cooper (TN-05), Bart Gordon (TN-06), Chet Edwards (TX-17), Glenn Nye (VA-02), Tom Periello (VA-05), Rick Boucher (VA-09), Brian Baird (WA-03), Jim McDermott (WA-07), and Adam Smith (WA-09).
You know the teabaggers are letting their voice be heard. We can’t sit idly by and let the Right out-do us on this front. Make sure these congresspeople hear from the true majority.
I don’t live in MA-09. Anyone here on BMG want to give Rep. Lynch a friendly call?
