Render your judgment; decide what happens to this politician
CNS News asked Representative Seth Moulton, Democrat of Massachusetts, if he had read the 2,465-page “Build Back Better Act.” He responded “That’s why we have teams to read and digest the bills. No one here ever reads an entire bill.”
This begs the question, did anyone elect those “teams” to represent them? (Also, does anyone really believe that any teams read any of these bills in their entirety?) The answer is clearly no.
Render your judgment
What should happen to Seth Moulton for failing to do his job?
Most people will say that he should be replaced come next Election Day. But doing that will require a majority of the voters in that district to agree on a replacement. Sheesh! That’s tiring to think about, let alone accomplish. That’s why…
Agenda Setters wants to nudge your judgment
We believe we have a better, simpler path.
Your congressional district has about 700,000 people in it. If just 300 people visited Seth, you could persuade him to change his tune and sponsor the Read the Bills Act.
Even if he was reluctant, if that was happening in each Congressional district, many members would respond to the call.
Would Seth be committing to read 2,000-page bills? Of course not. The Read the Bills Act changes the incentives. Bills would become very short so that politicians like Seth could endure reading them.
Please help make this happen by becoming one of The 300 for your district.
Or, if you’ve already done that then please…
