Congressman threatens federal prosecution for voicing opinion

Whatever you read today, spend 10 minutes and read this story of a concerned citizen calling his Congressman to try to influence his vote on the upcoming health care legislation.  While the blogger tried to connect his congressman to Speaker Pelosi, I am not sure he effectively makes the case. What the story does point out is how little the comments and opinions of every day constituents affect the opinion of elected representatives.

I think that President Andrew Jackson is spinning in his grave.
