URGENT: Senate vote on "Financial Reform" this week

The Senate will vote on the Frank-Dodd financial (non)reform bill (H.R. 4173) this week and possibly as soon as today. Although it has the votes to pass, it doesn't yet have the 60 votes needed to break a filuster.

This bill will only strangle our already-ailing economy, and will do nothing to prevent future financial collapses or bailouts. Please tell your Senators to support the filibuster and oppose Frank-Dodd through our Reduce Regulations campaign.

You may borrow or copy from this letter . . .

Reducing regulations would actually be the best reform of the financial system. The fraudulent Dodd-Frank bill will only create powerful new armies of regulators who won't actually reform anything.

As David C. John and James L. Gattuso of the Heritage Foundation point out . . . http://www.kentucky.com/2010/07/09/1342459/reinforcing-too-big-to-fail.html

* At 2,300 pages, none of you will have read the bill or know what, exactly, is in it
* The bill empowers regulators to seize private property and "wind down" firms they, and they alone, judge to be "failing."
* A Committee to guard against "systemic risk" won't possibly possess all the knowledge to do their job, and will only discourage and stifle innovation
* The Consumer Protection bureau will reduce the number of options and choices of informed, responsible customers
* The new bureau will also issue supposedly "consumer-friendly" regulations that will conflict with the goal of other regulators of protecting the safety and soundness of financial firms
* By abolishing retail debit card fees (a practice that had nothing to do with the crisis), banks will be forced to raise revenue other ways such as eliminating free checking (and some banks have already begun to do this)
* The bill does nothing to reform Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, two firms that played a huge role in causing the financial crises - which makes future bailouts probable

It gets worse . . .

* A provision to audit the Federal Reserve was gutted in the final bill
* Section 342 seems to require quotas for women and minorities for government agencies and contractors, as if current laws and current departmental civil rights enforcers weren't enough http://tinyurl.com/3997jfu

I don't see how this bill provides ANY benefit to me or to the nation. Instead of reforming our financial system, it just empowers politicians and bureaucrats to reward your friends and punish your enenemies.

A REAL reform bill would . . .

* require greater accountability in the market by forcing even large firms to face the threat of bankruptcy
* abolish "government sponsored enterprises" like Fannie and Freddie
* provide a real and thorough audit of the Fed, whose decisions did so much to cause the crisis

Please introduce real reform that would unleash our over-regulated economy. And I DEMAND you oppose Dodd-Frank!

END LETTER

You can send your letter through DownsizeDC.org's Educate the Powerful System.

If you live in one of the following states, it would also be particularly helpful to call your Senator:

Iowa: Chuck Grassley (Republican)
Maine: BOTH Susan Collins (Republican) AND Olympia Snowe (Republican)
Massachusetts: Scott Brown (Republican)
Washington: Maria Cantwell (Democrat)
Wisonsin: Russ Feingold (Democrat)

You will see your Senator's phone number when you are logged into the system.

And we encourge all of you to tell your friends to take action! Forward this to your friends and share it on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/downsizedc

Thanks for doing your part to Downsize DC!

Urge Sen. Kay Hagan to vote NO on Kagan

Time For Blue Dog Democrats To Show Their True Colors
Urge Sen. Kay Hagan to vote NO on Kagan

Gun Owners of America E-Mail Alert

Friday, July 9, 2010

The nomination of Elena Kagan to the U.S. Supreme Court presents an opportunity for pro-gun "Blue Dog" Democrats to vote to protect the Second Amendment -- or stop pretending to be pro-gun.

During her confirmation hearings last week, Kagan ducked and dodged questions about the Second Amendment, and she refused to declare whether she believes the Second Amendment protects an individual right.

While Kagan blathered on and on about precedent and "settled law" with regard to the Supreme Court decisions in Heller and McDonald, this in no way precludes her from ruling that almost any gun law -- including gun owner registration, purchasing limits, waiting periods, private sale background checks, and more -- are consistent with the Constitution.

As GOA attorney William J. Olson, who testified at the hearings, noted: "If [Kagan] were to go on the Court, with what we know about her now, she could be the most anti-gun justice on that Court." (See www.gunowners.org/kagantestimony for video of that testimony.)

Senator Kay Hagan claims to support the Second Amendment. Well, if that's the case then there is NO WAY she can vote to confirm anti-gun radical Kagan to the Supreme Court of the United States!

ACTION: Contact Sen. Hagan and urge her to oppose Elena Kagan for the U.S. Supreme Court. Please urge your family and friends to do the same. A pre-written letter is provided below for you to copy-and-paste or to guide your comments.

Contact info:

Sen. Kay Hagan
Phone -- (202) 224-6342
Webform -- http://hagan.senate.gov/?p=contact

----- Pre-written letter -----

Dear Senator Hagan:

You claim to be a supporter of the Second Amendment. If that is the case, there is NO WAY that you can vote to confirm radical anti-gunner Elena Kagan to the U.S. Supreme Court.

During her confirmation hearings last week, Kagan ducked and dodged questions about the Second Amendment, and she refused to declare whether she believes the Second Amendment protects an individual right.

While Kagan blathered on and on about precedent and "settled law" with regard to the Supreme Court decisions in Heller and McDonald during the Senate hearings, this in no way precludes her from ruling that almost any gun law -- including gun owner registration, purchasing limits, waiting periods, private sale background checks, and more -- are consistent with the Constitution.

As GOA attorney William J. Olson, who testified at the hearings, noted: "If [Kagan] were to go on the Court, with what we know about her now, she could be the most anti-gun justice on that Court."

I am sure you have seen the recent polls -- fewer than four in ten Americans want to see Kagan confirmed to the Court. I hope you will follow the will of the American people on this one, and not blindly follow the President who, himself, is at near record lows in the polls.

I urge you in the strongest possible terms to oppose the confirmation of Elena Kagan and join a filibuster of her nomination.

Sincerely,

IN THE NEWS

TAKE ACTION TO FIGHT TAXPAYERS BEING FORCED TO FUND MORE CAMPAIGNS THIS WEEK

PLEASE TAKE ACTION TO FIGHT TAXPAYERS BEING FORCED TO FUND MORE CAMPAIGNS THIS WEEK

Dear Grassroots activist:
With no public notice, the North Carolina State House Speaker, Representative Joe Hackney, (D-Chapel Hill) has just now (3:00 PM Wednesday July 7th) announced he will hold a stealth vote to force you into funding political campaigns against your will. The vote will be held later today and another vote will likely come tomorrow.

Take action now by clicking here.

Despite your massive opposition there are some Raleigh lawmakers that are continuing to push a massive expansion of using taxpayer money to fund political campaigns!!

Let's be clear. We must stop this movement now. The other side will not rest. Every time they add one more elected office to the list you are forced to fund, they move on to the next one, with the goal of using your tax dollars to fund anybody who runs for political office, from the dog catcher to the Whitehouse.

Senate Bill 20 and House Bill 120 would permanently expand taxpayer financing of political campaigns to State treasurer and some municipal races. Taxpayers should not be forced to fund campaigns they disagree with.

Recently the members of American for Prosperity helped stop a scheme to raise taxes and spend millions of your dollars to fund political races. But we need your help again.

AFP-NC urges you to TAKE ACTION and contact your lawmakers and ask them to against Senate Bill 20 and House Bill 120 and/or any bill that expands forced taxpayer support of political campaigns.

Sincerely,
Dallas H. WoodhouseState Director

While Anne Margaret may miss Birdie. A great deal of Americans will not shed a tear for his passing. It will end decades of a man who belonged to the KKK and participated in their hateful ways.

Perhaps this will open the doors to prevent more unborn children for dying. Robert Bryd was called a champion of civil rights unless of course you happened to be black or an unborn child.

I sure hope that he was able to ask God to forgive him and repent of his sins before he passed. Even the thief on the cross was able to see the kingdom of heaven so there is always hope.

Our next hope is that pro abortionist Elena Kagan does not get confirmed as the next supreme court justice. Someone who has no experience as a judge or even an attorney and is blatantly biased has no place on the highest court of the land. Remember, justice is supposed to be blind without bias. Kagan is far from it.

Keep Up the Pressure to Kill a Dangerous Bill

Downsize DC MAY be on the verge of another victory, but it's up to you to keep up the pressure.

You see, last November, a Senate committee unanimously approved a poisonous "food safety" bill, S.510.

Seven months later, however, the bill still hasn't reached the Senate floor.

Why?

Because of you!

DC Downsizers and a broad coalition of farm activists objected to the draconian regulations that would destroy small farms and the organic food industry.

In response, Sen. Jon Tester proposed some amendments that would exempt family farms and small food processors. Other Senators have proposed other amendments, and Majority Leader Harry Reid is facing division within his own party on the bill.

It's possible that Sen. Reid won't bring S.510 to the floor at all this year. This would be ideal.

It's also possible that the Senate will debate the bill sometime in the coming weeks, so let's be prepared . . .

* tell Congress you oppose this dangerous food "safety" bill
* and at the very least, insist on Sen. Tester's amendments

Please send your message using DownsizeDC.org's Freedom to Farm campaign.

You may borrow from or copy this letter . . .

In general, I oppose federal "safety" regulations. Our food supply would be safer if the free market and the states supplied the regulations.

* Private trade associations and certification boards will compete to win consumer confidence in the safety and reliability of their products
* Firms that sell liability insurance would have flexible, site-specific safety requirements instead of one-size-fits-all regulations
* Consumers would be more likely to purchase from local growers and sellers that they know and trust
* States could learn from each other the most effective government regulations, if any are needed

In principle, then, I believe you should oppose S.510 and work to repeal most of the federal laws and regulations on the books.

I also demand that you make the bill "less bad" by insisting on the inclusion of Sen. Tester's amendments. These amendments would exempt . . . http://tester.senate.gov/Newsroom/pr_041410_foodsafety.cfm

* Producers that add value to food through processing and whose adjusted gross income is less than $500,000 per year;
* Producers who sell their food directly to market (such as farmers’ markets).

Please support other amendments that would make the bill less burdensome for farmers and small processors. There will never be a 100% guarantee that all food will always be safe, but . . .

* recent food-borne illness outbreaks have not been caused by family farms and other small businesses
* if outbreaks were to occur, the number of victims will be small and the effects will be localized

In contrast, excessive fees and regulations could wipe out many small farms and businesses. This would make our food LESS safe because no amount of regulation or inspection will prevent every outbreak, and outbreaks in the corporate food chain will have far more victims and more widespread effects.

We do not need more federal regulation. We would be safer if we had more freedom.
