Many reports in the media describe this as a longshot measure or that it is doomed to fail. They may ultimately be found correct -- but that is something of a self-fulfilling prophecy. If people contact their Congressional Representatives and tell them they want to see the procrastinating stop and to get this done -- it can be passed. The bill itself has 199 co-sponsors and they only need 218 signatures for the discharge petition. Voting yes would bring the bill to the floor for a vote -- it would still have to pass. There aren't 20 Republicans in the House who could be convinced to hold a vote on the bi-partisan bill that passed the Senate last Summer!?!

New Hampshire's Representatives are already signed on ... if you have family that live in another state that are represented by a Republican -- ask them to call their House member and get them to sign up!
