Health Care or Offshore Drilling? You Decide

It's time to ask your representative: are you going to be with us on health care reform, or working to preserve the broken system?
Well you have to say something for the #Dontgo twits -- they know how to carry Big Oil's water and back down the Democrats. Now Nancy Pelosi says that she's open to having a vote in September on mo' drilling, despite the fact that a majority of Americans think it is "more likely to enrich oil companies than to lower gas prices for American consumers."

I guess we have to take it off the table as an issue in November to insure we get subpoena power. Or more and better parking spaces for Democrats, I'm not sure which.
