New Strategy For Getting the Government We Want

Well I am back sorry for the long absence.  I hope all of you will join in the new effort to get what we want out of our government.  Tweeting, blogging, and complaining about Obama not doing it all the way we want has gotten us very little except for a major defeat in the midterms.  Our efforts have been gallant, but mis directed.  We need to take the attack plan of our adversaries and make it our own.  An important pillar is the energy, time and effort they exert calling, faxing, and directly writing their Senators and Representatives in the House.
We need to employ this tactic starting with calling, directly writing and faxing all of the Democratic Senators who have said they are for or are willing to consider voting to extend the debt funded Bush tax cuts for the richest 2% of taxpayers.  I firmly believe our country can not pay for more debt funded tax breaks for the rich.  Especially considering the numerous economic articles currently circulating that show the rich have already come out of the recession.  The idea that tax cuts for the rich will spawn job growth was totally debunked during this recession because during the lead-up years the rich got the largest tax cut in a generation and the economy and job growth was the smallest it has been in 70 years.  The so called Death Tax should be reinstated also!
So here is the list of Democratic Senators you need to lobby like crazy until the vote on extending tax cuts happens:
