Make sure you get hired first. Might as well get paid for it. The Dems are advertising on Craig's list right now for door to door canvassers.

I can tell you that if my senator votes FOR the current bill, I will work to do all I can to get him or her defeated. And, no one will need to pay me to do that.

The Republicans don't need to pay canvassers. They own an entire TV network. Faux News.

I won't have to be paid if my senator votes against it. I guess we will see who really wants it or does not want it more. That is how the system is supposed to work anyway.

Since you live in South Carolina, I don't think you will have that problem!

This is hilarious how many liberals are driven crazy by one media outlet that doesn't slant everything with a liberal bias when liberals have MSNBC, NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, and most major newspapers. Liberals have a multitude of other sources for their talking points and they still need canvassers to get out their message because most of these liberal outlets are losing more and more viewers every day who have grown tired of listening to the propaganda.

So according to the Congressional Budget Office a "strong public option" will either have to contain very limited health screening benefits or else be very expensive.

I realize that many of the strong Obama supporters want this issue to be a continuation of the "I want more benefits, but someone else to pay for them" gravy train. At the core of multiple issues, including health care, this is really what many/most supporters want.

However, I think your freebie ride is about to get derailed with this issue.

First we'll either derail or severely limit the healthcare proposals, and next we'll take on "Cap & Trade".

It will be fun to watch the Dems eat their young after going down in flames after healthcare. The chances for the Republicans in 2010 just improved. Well done Dean!

said he was "in favor" of holding recalcitrant senators and congressman accountable on health care related issues.

Dean: "There Will Be Primaries" For Dems Who Vote Against Public Option
Empty threat. Dean knows that the Blue Dogs were elected primarily in red states. And they got elected only because they ran to the right of their Republican opponents. So if far left Dems succeed in unseating the Blue Dogs in the primaries, those leftists won't have a chance of winning in a general election. That would virtually ensure a Republican tide in 2010.

Blue Dogs must be fuming about those comments, tough to be a reasonable representative in this "keep giving out freebies" environment.

Governor Dean is the genius who orchestrated the 50 state strategy that propelled Barack Obama to victory in the 2008 election, including turning several formerly-red states blue. Underestimate him at your party's own peril.
