Isn't it too late to call today? For all the calls today, would the congressman/congresswoman get the message before the markup of HR5882 begins (sometime this afternoon)? Just curious.

Default Co-Sponsors now 31

3 more co-sponsors added, the total is now 31.

Also noticed only 8 Republicans v/s/ 23 Dems.

Although number of republicans so-sponsoring is lower, it's still 25% of the total so there is hope that more will support it when it comes to voting.

Default Would there be a lame duck session?

Based on what the person from Rep. Lofgren's office said "there would be vote in two months", does it mean really the Sept. 26 is not "the last" date for this congress? Would there be a lame duck session? And then of course for all the politicians lame duck session would be the best opportunity to tackle this.
From the link posted by 'polapragada', the person in Rep. Lofgren's office said that there was opposition. Nothing is coming out from IV core or any of the known sources. Obviously this is becoming an uphill battle but there is still some hope. The only and I repeat "the only" thing that we can do is contact all the judiciary committee members and express support. I feel we should also call Lofgren's office, Sensenbrenner's office, Pelosi's office to express support.
Please note that the very fact that McCain is a republican nominee proves that these NumberUSA and FAIR are minorities even in extreme right wingers. They are just noisy.
But as I have said our call campaign has been pathetic and we should be doing at least 100 times better.

does this mean we should also call Rep. Lofgren's office and re-emphasise the fact that her efforts are apprecaited and show our strong support. everyone needs motivation.
