  •  Issues-based donations: citizen lobbyists (2+ / 0-)

    I hadn't thought about it like this before, but the Act Blue funding pages based around specific issues are the thing that enables citizen lobbying.  Whether or not it allows us to compete with the big lobbies remains to be seen, but it's an encouraging prospect.  

    The idea that someone could raise funds in a pressure campaign like that targeting specific members was pretty new, and it got a lot of attention on the Hill.
