Even here in the once Golden State, there are at least a couple of Democrat congressmen that tacitly pass themselves off as "Blue Dog" Dems. They sound moderate at election time yet vote strangely to the left of their voters.
But, no matter that minor detail.
Here is a way to make your voice heard, whether you live in their districts or not. Whether you live in California or not.
These three members of congress, Dennis Cardoza, Jim Costa and Loretta Sanchez, like to tell voters they are fiscally responsible. Well, tell them that if they vote for the abomination known as so-called health care "reform", you will not forget them at election time. If you do live in their district, tell them that if they intend to vote yes, you will vote against them. And donate money to their Republican opponent. And that you will tell your friends in the district and they will do the same. And that you will tell people across the United States so that they can donate cash to their opponent.
Here is the contact info for the three aforementioned congressmen:

Messrs. Cardoza and Costa are attempting to be bribed by opening up some water spickets to some desperate farmers who need it. Oh, the spickets are on to "protect" the California Delta Smelt. It is an out and out bribe. If one was not a member of congress, they would be with Bernie Madoff.
I do not put much stock in the "Blue Dog" image Mrs. Sanchez puts out there. But she may be in some real election trouble. Her district is becoming much more Asian. And Republican. And her GOP opponent, state assemblyman Van Tran, is her toughest opponent in a while. A little pressure may not hurt to put on Mrs. Sanchez.
I will add my own congressman, Adam Schiff. OK, you can call him Adam Schift. He is going to vote for this abomination. But, you can let him know that you will not vote for his reelection. And that you will actively campaign for and donate to his Republican opponent, John Colbert. Rep. Schiff may have won reelection last year with ease. But in a year of angst and visceral hatred of the crooks in Washington, Mr. Schiff can live in the bubble. But like many before him, he may lose come November.

Please, make sure to call both the Washington and local office. E-mail as well.
Do not believe that this abomination is inevitable. Call and let your voice be heard. It is the best way to make sure that the Dear Leader, President Obama, Jackass Nancy Pelosi and her Goon Sqaud do not get more than 210 votes!
