It would seem that the halls of Congress are even farther detached from the streets of these United States than one might think.

I’m still trying to find the first American to talk to who’s in favor of the public option, other than a member of Congress or the administration…I’ve not talked to one and I get to a lot of places…I’ve not had anyone come up to me — I know I’m inviting them — and lobby for the public option. This is about as unpopular as a garlic milkshake.Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio)
House Minority Leader

Well, mantra #4 applies here, but we are gonna try like hell anyway. Tweet Boehner directly, join a Facebook group of people that want to introduce themselves to Boehner so he can meet Americans who support a public option and then call his office directly at (202) 225-6205 and let him know that you support AT LEAST a public option. Remember, a single-payer system is the cat’s pajamas.

I’ve tweeted; I’ve Facebooked; I’ll be on the phone as soon as I hit publish here. Now you do the same. Game on!
