    To your Senators? I have. I see absolutely no reason why the seniors in Fla should get to keep their medicare advantage while all the other seniors in all the other states lose theirs. So if you disagree with what your senator has done have your written?

    I've written to the Senators from Illinois several times but unless you are a member of the "I like Obama" Club you get no response.

    I used to write and call them, but since whey were major water carriers for Bush I gave up.
    Hope to replace the baseball dummy with someone else this next year.

    I've written, and I have called my Senators, and my Congressman.
    Jim Risch, and Mike Crapo are 2 republicans, and Walt Minnick, my congressman who is a Blue Dog democrat. Minnick seems to be fiscally conservative, because my state is pretty conservative. Having said that...I feel he wouldn't be able to weather the storm from Pelosi if it came down to his vote.

    I talk to Sen. Kyl's office quite often as well as Sen. McCains however there is not much they can do other than complain. I do find it somewhat upsetting that on the Medicare side that Fl. Seniors are excempt from any Medicare Advantage cuts while Arizona Seniors are not. The last time I checked all of Americans pay Federal taxes to the same Govt. One other thing that is very upsetting is that my state is facing a budget crisis of epic proportions left over by our previous Gov. who is now everyones homeland security director. The school district I live in laid off 500 teachers at the beginning of the year and has cut back fire, police, etc. and now we are asked as Arizonan's to fund forever Medicaid in Nebraska while our citizens are forced to cut back in order to pay for it. So of course I have talked to those who represent me.

    I'm going to call Sen. Lemieux and tell him how honorable he is! Nelson got my message. I don't want a canned response from him either.

    I have written to mine.

    I also write to other senators like Olympia Snow. She actually listened and didn't vote for the health bill!!!!

    Probably wasn't my letter that made her change her vote but still its what I asked of her and she did it ;).
