About 2,000 people have sent electronic greetings to Rep. Dennis Moore, thanking him for supporting the comprehensive health care bill that passed the House of Representatives last week.
Moore, D-Lenexa, is the only Democrat in the Kansas congressional delegation and was the state’s only representative to support the bill.
The state Democratic Party set up a link on its website for residents to send personal thank-yous to Moore for his vote.
As of Friday afternoon, 1,942 had done so, with responses still coming in and expected to exceed 2,000, said party spokesman Tyler Longpine.
Critics of national health care have been shouting down supporters and congresspeople at town hall meetings around the country; it’s also been a favored target for scorn at conservative “tea party” meetings nationwide.
