What was the reaction of the Senators and Congresspeople who attended? Did they actually listen? Even better, were any of them persuaded?


I contacted my reps, is there any way to see who attended? I would love to see who went and who did not, so we can start to focus on getting those who didn't come on getting them the proper full information! Anyone know where/if such a list of attendees would be? Thanks!

There is so little time. It is best to call personally. E-mails don't always get read and certainly not right away.
I told them they need to RSVP Beth Clay so i can know who is really going and to let me know.

Dan E. Burns -

Done (Dallas, TX), by phone. One senator's aide said they had received several calls about the breakfast briefing and planned to send a staffer to monitor the event.


I have writtne Mitch McConnell and Hal Rogers so much with this stuff --- but I did again (twice in two days)
But it is done.


You have to slightly edit the message in the text box(es)to personalize it, but this is certainly something we all need to do.
