Senate opportunity!
By Perry Willis
Today's Downsizer-Dispatch . . . More progress! There's an amendment in the Senate to strip out the grassroots regulation provisions from the lobbying bill. If we can pass this amendment we're half-way home to complete victory on this issue. Let's do it! Please send your Senators a message right now asking them to support this amendment. We've adapted the message to Congress for this campaign for this purpose. You can send your message HERE. This is urgent. A vote could happen at any moment. So after you've sent your message, please call your Senators too. Their phone numbers will be right there on the screen. Senate offices get calls like this all day long, so don't be shy. They're expecting your call, and it's quick and easy. Thank you! GROWTH NUMBERS: Downsizers have already sent 17,142 messages to Congress so far this month. That's better than we did in 5 of 12 months last year, and we still have 21 days left! Keep it going by sending your message to the Senate today. We've also recruited 252 new Downsizers in 10 days. That's already better than we did in 3 of 12 months last year. If you haven't signed up to use our Congressional Contact System, please make this Senate-amendment campaign your first one. It only takes a few minutes to do it the first time. Send your first message here. OPERATION EVERYWHERE: We've received a $148 per month pledge toward advertising for the "Read the Bills Act." Do the math. $148 x 12 months equals 1776! We like the spirit! Please help us with our January advertising campaign by starting a monthly credit card pledge or making a one time donation HERE. Thank you for being a DC Downsizer. Jim Babka President, Inc.
