WASHINGTON – An innovative new campaign to alert Congress of widespread grass-roots opposition to massive new spending plans as well as other objectionable and intrusive legislation is already responsible – in the first 24 hours – for the distribution of 500,000 "pink slip" notices to members of the House and Senate.

I agree. It seemed like an alright idea until you pointed out the cost. I went to the FedEx website and it costs $15 to send an .1 lb envelope to Washington DC in 3 days.
Overnight was $26.53, but I see no need for them to send it overnight. I think you're right. Sounds like they are trying to make some money off of this.

Awful lot of money to send pink slips. Sounds to me like a $15m scam.
