    me do it. It's time for the grassroots to collect. Put the pressure on every congress critter, and the President. Thank Senator Reid. Kovie suggested Occupy the critters offices. Angie has a few ideas. Citizens Lobbyist? group here at Dkos.

    Put your critters on your favorites bar. If your critters are the red type, tell them no compromise. Keep phone numbers handy, call them up while waiting in line.

    The Obstructionists(formerly known as Republicans) cannot be allowed to do this again. WE cannot allow the President to do this again.

    He owes us. He knows it. Pressure him as much as we pressured people to vote.

    2012-2016 President Obama, Vice President Biden, Senator Warren. For a LIFETIME, federal judges. Get the filibuster changed. Harry, the people have spoken. To all Democrats: do not reach across the aisle, your hand will get cut off. Steamroll.

      Remember the crazy amount of lobbying for the public option? I've never seen anything like that before, and probably won't again. If there ever was a "make me do it", it was that lobbying and yet it was thrown out because the real deal had been sealed behind closed doors months before.

      So there's no point pretending that Obama is now prepared to listen to liberals.

        Giving up is not the solution. Being louder is.

          like to hear from the grassroots, I'm sure. I'd like to thank Senator Reid, & give him encouragement. Occupy the offices, the phone lines, the inboxes.
