Come Together!

Yeah, I stole a line from an old song but in this case "come together" relates to the Republicans and the Democrats in Congress. As you know Congress has been on vacation but they reconvene on the 4th. One of the items that was left hanging was a decision on making headway on the gas/energy issue. A bipartisan group of 10 Senators formulated the "New Energy Reform Act of 2008" and while it isn't perfect at least it is a step in the right direction. Instead of arguing about whose plan is better, there has been some compromising between the two opposing groups and maybe just maybe the American public can benefit.

At any rate check out the link and read about the energy reform act and if you agree with it then you can voice your support by sending a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and one to Senators McCain and Obama. Mom
