This is not some country wide mandate that congress if off track. This nation needs so many of the proposals in D.C. Right now. The vocal minority is wide awake. They poured in money and time. We went about our daily lives.

We cannot be off our game come November. And that isn't just us policy nerds, impassioned bloggers, and other sorts who frequent this site. It's our friends and neighbors who worked to get a president elected who would actually sign something as 'far left' as a few new health industry regulations. Tell everyone who worked in '07 for change in '08. We need to get on our feet again. Get involved again. Knock on some doors and make some calls. We can do it again!
We can let them be right. We can let this be a sign that badly needed progress is unnecessary and unwanted. We can let them jam this down our throats. Oh Yes we can. All we have to do is nothing.
