      Just let the rates expire.
      Or are you talking about a credible threat to the members of congress?  Because that was sort of my question.  What can we as citizens do to bring home our opinion to congress, and make them pay attention?

        The Party can (and will) almost* always protect them from a Primary.

        So you have to draw lines, and you have to mean it, or you will certainly be ignored (rather than just probably ignored).
