Healthcare Reform: Let Legislators Know How You Feel About Their Vote

Over the weekend, the House passed a version of healthcare reform that will soon be moving to the Senate. According to Community Catalyst, this vote marks the first time in 100 years of "episodic" work on health care reform that a bill has emerged from one chamber of the legislature.
