I called the White House just now and asked to speak to Barack Obama. Figured he was through sqandering more of our money in the Rose Garden so he’d have a minute to talk to me. I guess he was still busy because the gentleman who answered the phone transferred me to the comment line. After an eight-minute wait I got a real person and I was actually very polite as I left my comment: essentially, as a senior citizen, I feel the health care bill should be trashed and we should start over; the Slaughter Plan is unconstitutional. The end. I didn’t even refer to the president as—well, never mind. The lady I talked to was very courteous and I’m sure she’ll get the message to him right away. I know how important our feedback is to him and that’s probably why he has volunteers taking our messages. What a guy.
To make it easier for you, the number of the White House is 202-456-1414. The comment line is 202-456-1111. If you make a phone call it doesn’t cost that much and you can feel you did your civic duty.
Cue the conspiracy theorists…
