Support The Blue Dogs

Greetings! It appears conservatives may have some allies in the form of Blue Dog Democrats. These are 51 Congressional Representatives who are moderate to center right in their views. For the Democrats to ram legislation through the House they need 40 votes from this block of Democrats. Recently Blue Dog power has come forward in the socialized health care debate. They have fought to slow down the process and make a real effort to analyze what is being proposed. Their actions have thrown off Speaker Pelosi's time table of ramming the legislation through the House before the summer recess to prevent citizens from engaging their representatives face to face. As of Friday, she proposed to by-pass the last remaining committee to bring the bill to the House floor for a vote. She does this at the peril of angering many of the Blue Dogs. A link to the Blue Dog Coalition is in the Web Links of Interest panel. Send them a note of support with your own ideas of what needs to be done. Remind them to read what they vote on too!
