Swing Votes on Health Care

We don't believe that there is any chance of stopping Obama's renewed push for his horrible health care changes in the Senate. Harry Reid is going to use the reconciliation procedure to jam it through with 51 votes -- and he will get them. All the hype about how difficult it will be is to distract us from the real battle which will come in the House.
There, where every member faces re-election, it will be a lot harder for Pelosi to round up the vote she needs. Last time she passed health care by 220-215. This time, a lot of the Democrats who voted for health care are going to be so worried about re-election that they might be induced to jump ship.
The League of American voters has produced ads targeting these swing Congressmen and we urge you STRONGLY to CLICK HEREto send them money to help fund these ads.
But please do more. If you live in any of the states from which these swing Congressmen come, please call them. Let them know your opposition to health care changes. The phone for Congress is 202-224-3121. Here's the list:
