Green's vote surprised a lot of people. Maybe he can be swayed in conference.

> Just received word which Senators are on the conference committee. I have indicated which way they voted on the medical coverage for the blind being restored. Of course the nays are the ones we need to concentrate on. When you call or email them, just indicate that you hope they will do the right thing and approve the Senate?s version of the budget to restore funding for the blind pension medical coverage. Just be polite and courteous and to the point. Let your subject line convey your message to them. I?ll send out the names of the House representatives on the conference committee as soon as it is available.
