What Congress did
By Perry Willis
Today's Downsizer Dispatch . . . Please share with concerned friends . . . In this issue: * What Congress did last week * Babka is on the radio today, and you can listen, call-in, or email questions What Congress did last week: Every week James Wilson (Downsize DC Assistant to the President) provides a wonderful service on our blog. He lists all of the legislation passed by Congress in the previous week and the number of pages involved. He also provides some idea of what some of the legislation does, to the extent that it is possible to determine. You can check out his latest report HERE. For the week of March 26 through 31, Congress passed a whopping 403 pages of legislation! You are now responsible to obey and pay for all of this new law. Are you prepared to do so? Do you think anyone in Congress read all of this dense legalease? Do you think Congress deliberated, debated, or asked questions before they voted to impose all of this on you? We suggest you use this information to write a message to Congress about the "Read the Bills Act." Let them know that you're aware they passed 403 pages of legislation last week. Tell them you are skeptical that they read it, debated it, asked questions, or really understood all of it before they passed it into law. Tell them they can relieve your lack of confidence in them by introducing Downsize DC's "Read the Bills Act." You can do so HERE. Please also consider making a contribution to further our work. You can do so here. Jim Babka on the Radio: Jim will be on the Jerry Hughes show again today. This show is a great opportunity to spread the DC Downsizer message.
