Responsible legislators

I want to commend the US Senators who are standing up to the pressure being placed on them to ram through a massive and unwise health care bill.

As described in this article, 6 senators sent a letter to Senate leadership, takes issue with the speed with which the bill is being processed. (Senators: Susan Collins, R-Maine; Mary Landrieu, D-Louisiana; Joe Lieberman, I-Connecticut; Ben Nelson, D-Nebraska; Olympia Snowe, R-Maine; and Ron Wyden, D-Oregon)

It is not only unwise to ram through a massive bill like this, it is irresponsible.  I am proud of these Senators for doing their jobs and calling for appropriate due diligence.
