We are currently at an historic moment culminating 100 years of effort toward health care reform.  Many people are criticizing Obama for not providing the nation with HIS plan for health care reform. 

I would like to praise our professor of Constitutional law, now President, for restoring the Executive Branch to its Constitutional role of carrying out the laws written by Congress.  Obama is not playing the Unitary Executive of Alexander Hamilton or George Bush.  Instead, he is allowing Congress to follow their Constitutional mandate to heed the calls of the electorate and craft legislation for the Executive Branch to execute. 

On the other hand, our elected representatives in Congress are jockeying around the issues as usual, not sure whether to represent the electorate or their corporate donors.  Therefore, it is paramount that We the People contact our Senators and Representative in Congress in every way and as frequently as possible to tell them what kind of health care we want.  Call, write and fax them everyday until health care legislation is passed.
