http://www.senate.gov/legislative/LIS/roll_call_lists/roll_call_vote_cfm.cfm?congress=109&session=2&vote=00119 - for those that want to see how their senator voted. In my search for this website I found out that this act also took away optometric benefits - which the association for the blind was fighting as well. Fundamentally flawed indeed! Let me know if there are further threats. Something tells me this isn't the end of this. I did hear back from the other senator I wrote. Kay Bailey is generally really responsive, and she did touch on some of the points I made. I was a bit disappointed to see she voted yea, but not really suprised at all.

Thank you for the link, Chrissy.

Both of my Senators voted "yea" which is not a surprise to me. I got a nice long letter from Burr touting why the bill was so great.
