Herbie Kohl! Rusty Feingold! Pay Attention!

All I get from Herbie (Nobody's Senator) is the same damn form letter, no matter what my correspondence says.

No surprise. Herbie won't be accused of "activist Senator-ing", ever.

Meantime, the Lefties have figured out what's up with ObamaCare, and they don't like it. Maybe Herbie and Rusty will pay attention to them.

Or not.

The bill that passed the Senate with such fanfare on Christmas Eve would impose a confiscatory 40 percent excise tax on so-called Cadillac health plans, which are popularly viewed as over-the-top plans held only by the very wealthy. In fact, it’s a tax that in a few years will hammer millions of middle-class policyholders, forcing them to scale back their access to medical care. Which is exactly what the tax is designed to do.

The alternative, of course, is to INCREASE the tax to maintain ~par medical care. Either way, most people in the USA will lose.
