Last week when I was making calls I had one woman tell me to make sure to call my state reps.
I told her I was from TX and no one from TX was on the subcommittee. She said it doesn't matter if enough people call their state reps the state reps will in turn put pressure on the subco. I still think #1 priority is members of the subco. themselves.
If you have enough time, energy and patience then call your state reps. Obviously if you live in a state that has a member on the subco. call other reps. in your state to.
Personally I didn't waste my time on FL, HI, or Guam. You are not going to change their mind.
There are a lot of cold weather states on the subco.
While everyone stresses to be polite it seems okay to be argumenative. I had several lengthy and involved conversations.
Of course this was over a week ago hopefully they don't have time for that now.
The thing that annoys me the most is that this country is stuggling like it hasn't struggled in a very long time.
Leave it to FL,HI and a bunch of AR groups to try to sneak something through while the country is focused on bigger and more important issues. I for one find that underhanded and extremely unproductive.
