You will be amused (and appalled) by the replies you receive.  I have one of 
each.  Senator Blunt, who is a co-sponsor of the bill in the Senate, basically 
ignored my opposition.  He used the reply to tell me HIS position on the 
while implying that everybody should agree with him.  Congressman Akin, who 
opposes the bill in House, basically used the reply to congratulate me for 
agreeing with him.  Both of them cited concerns for the exact same things 
(innovation, competitiveness, etc.) in support of their opposite positions...  
Double-think lives! Orwell would be appalled.

Senator McCaskill has yet to weigh in, but I expect a similarly non-responsive

Don't have time to read all the replies so far, but I've already written to 
my rep and senator.

I'll check back later to read discussion.
