The Internet is awesome because of folks like you. Well, you and three billion of your nearest and dearest, some of whom might be calling up your elected officials and being all, “So, are you gonna help repeal DOMA or not?” And it’s those people who are getting answers from politicos directly, and then updating ACT On Principles‘ website so all their fellow constituents know exactly where their representatives stand. And when it comes to the DOMA-killing Respect For Marriage Act, you can finally know, in near real-time, just who on The Hill is backing the thing, and who needs some nudging from voters.
The graphic shows where things stand now since RMA’s introduction on Sept. 15. Thus far, there are 56 unknowns, and they might be your officials — so log on here to see how you can join the Public Whip Count and let others know which official need phone calls and letters.
Of course, those “Leaning No” and “No” need some of your loving, too.
