"Look at a stonecutter hammering away at this rock, perhaps a hundred times without so much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not the last blow that did it, but all that had gone before."-- Jacob A. Rils
Congress is the rock. "Read the Bills" is the hammer. You are the stonecutter.
Take action: Send a message asking Congress to pass the "Read the Bills Act" (RTBA). Do so by clicking here.
- 324 Downsizers sent 972 RTBA messages to Congress yesterday.
- 9,822 Downsizers have not yet sent an RTBA message this week. If they did Congress would be bombarded with 29,466 more appeals to pass RTBA (each message goes to one Represenative, and two Senators)
- 10,378 subscribers to the Downsizer-Dispatch have yet to use our online lobbying system for the first time. If they did so today for RTBA, another 31,134 messages would hammer Congress.
It only takes 2 to 3 minutes to use the system for the first time, and only a minute to use it every time thereafter. Join the fun by clicking here to send your first RTBA message.
One Downsizer contributed $10 toward our remaining February fundraising goal. We need another $3,909 by February 28. To make a contribution or start a monthly pledge click here.
