Lazy Sundays 3

31 Jul

Saturday is the first day of August, and it’s going to be a busy month both in and out of Washington. If you happen to live in a “swing state” — especially if you have a moderate Republican representative (e.g., Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins) or are home to one of the now infamous “Blue Dog” Democrats (If you’re representative is on this list, I’m looking at you)– be prepared for what is going to feel like part 2 of the ’08 election.

As interest groups try to influence the public and their elected officials on health reform, here’s a look at what you can expect.
