Dianne Feinstein: What The Hell?

The senior senator from California is actually supporting the Medicare Prescription Drug Plan, which the AARP has endorsed with the overwhelming majority of its membership's disapproval. The GOP-sponsored bill is - simply put - an abomination which the wingnuts are cramming down the throats of our elders by bum-rushing it through the House and now the Senate. There's so much wrong with this bill, and you can check out the deal here. (My mom pays out almost $2000 every six months for secondary coverage right now. With a diminished Medicare, that will certainly get jacked up.)

Here's Feinstein's number: 202-224-3841. Here's her e-mail link. Here are her branch offices throughout California if you'd like a door to bang on. Here's her snail-mail address:

Senator Dianne Feinstein
United States Senate
331 Hart Senate Office Building
Washington, DC 20510

It's amazing that well-paid politicians really have no perspective when it comes to dangerous bills such a this one. They don't even want to walk a yard in their constituents' shoes.
