Thursday Action Plan - Fully Fund IDEA

Today's action plan is simple. I am going to list four people who have supported full funding of IDEA. I will give you their contact information. All four are Democrats (surprise!) and all four are running for re-election.

Today, we will thank them for their efforts on behalf of disabled children and encourage them to continue to take a stand.

Please see contact information below the fold...

Campaigns are hard. Serving in Congress can be a thankless job. Today we will let them know that their efforts have been noticed. You may call, email, write or fax. I am sending personal notes. If you can't contact all four, pick one. Just say thank you. It will stand out because so few people take the time to do what we are going to do today.

The following four stood up for IDEA over the past four years. If you know another, please put contact information in the comments and that person will be added.

Please note - these are the contact numbers for their campaign. It is more likely they will get the information this way, or that an email will go through since the House email system blocks non-constituent mail.

Thank you for taking this step to recognize those who have consistently made efforts to see IDEA fully funded.


Done. Done. Done.

Thanks for nudging us to say thanks.

You are welcome

Thank you! I'm trying to come up with something original for tomorrow. I don't think LTEs are what we need least not until budget talks are underway.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

How about we call out Chuck Taylor

ask him why he never responds to our emails? Let's give him five BIG questions and request that answer them. And then ask him why he won't answer them. Hell, if John Hood can come into our evil den, surely one of our elected officials should be able to.

I can see it now:

Chuck Taylor Refuses BlueNC Interview

Raleigh - Embattled Congressman Charles "Delay" Taylor refused again today to respond to constitutent questions about his shady business dealings, lying to citizens, and questionable campaign finance reporting.

If we're going to do this...

We need to assure his office that, while we can't control our readers' comments, we will run his answers unedited and without editorial comment. We should also probably offer to pull the "Truth about Charles Taylor" button while the piece is on the front page. Finally, we shouldn't do this. He doesn't need a forum in which to distort and dissemble. We're doing a good job telling his story.

He'd never do it.

Not to worry. But it might be worth asking, just so I can use my headline.

anglico Up!

I got a idea on this. Post it here & I will cross post on my 2 Blogs & mabie then I can even do a Letter to the Editor of the Asheville paper as I live in 11. Let me know!

Spooky Da Dem Vet

This is great

I would like to point out that there are lots of Senators and Reps. that have signed on as cosponsors. What I don't get is...why the hell it hasn't happened. There are plenty of Republicans that support these bills, they are obviously whoring out IDEA for tax cuts.

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

Lance is right

We need to think this one through! If we invite Taylor to the site then we well wind up pulling a lot of folks good hard work off the board. Mabie we can come up with something else
Dan- Spooky da dem vet
Oh P.S- I got to thinking about things. I am just going to use my real god given name here instead of Spooky. Will still mabie use the pen name Spooky @ My Lone Gunman Site but for now. Hey everyone! I am Dan Siler from way out in Robbinsville in the far end of the 11th district. I guess if Im gonna print it then I as the very least ought to let em know who said it as Im not makeing threats against anyone. Now, se there Lance, SD,Anglico, Robert, I CAN IMPROVE!!! Anyhow you folks are one of the greatest groups I have been with in a long time and it just proves there is hope for this world yet!

Scratch That!

What say I go by Daniel Siler! Sounds more official & educated like,I guess! Besides ,that is what is on my biz cards!


Nice to meet you, Daniel. A personality split no longer! Very excellent name.
