Send a 'No health care reform' Christmas card to your senator

Mark J. Fitzgibbons
I've tried calling and faxing my "undecided" Democratic senator to urge him to vote against the Senate health care bill. I have not succeeded getting through.

Others report "Senatorial phone lines in Washington have been jammed."

But with my senator, it wasn't a jammed phone line; it was simply nobody answering. I guess that my senator, a former naval officer, decided it's OK to run silent when an important bill is about to come up for vote.

I decided to send my senator a Christmas card, thinking that might get through. I wrote in it:

"Please vote against the health care bill. Merry Christmas. Your constituent, Mark Fitzgibbons."

Given the season, I refrained from writing anything else.

If you want to send a Christmas or Hanukkah card to your own senator -- which might be the only way to get through to some of these senate offices -- you can find his or her address here.
