A letter to Senator Tom Udall (D-NM)

Only one:
Senator Tom Udall
110 Hart Senate Office Bldg
Washington, DC 20510

Senator Udall:

As stated previously, your seniors in the Senate are failing you – and the country.

In response to Scott Brown’s victory in Massachusetts, some of your colleagues are waving a white flag, as if a still-solid majority is not sufficient to pass meaningful legislation supporting Democratic ideals.

Please: take the lead. Take as your standard-bearer Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell:
“If we're going to go down, let's go down fighting for something."
I do not pretend to understand the parliamentary chicanery surrounding the Senate’s filibuster rules, but if it be possible in fact to force the so-called loyal opposition to actually filibuster, make ‘em do it!
Let the citizens of New Mexico and the rest of We the People see to what lengths the loyal opposition will go to deny us basic human rights in the form of universal health care.
We are the ONLY economically advanced democracy in the world without some form of universal healthcare.
Make your esteemed Republican colleagues stand their ground against We the People.

You may lose the battle – but if you stick to your guns, the war could be yours!

Will he listen? I'm not holding my breath.
