Congressional “Intelligence” Comes Without Any Studying

ACTION ITEM

 

I again told Congress to pass the Read the Bills Act using DownsizeDC.org's campaign.

 

Please do the same. You may borrow from or copy this letter…

 

On May 27, the 58-page Intelligence Authorization Act (HR 4681) was reported out of the so-called “Intelligence Committee.” And your “leaders” intend to get it passed in just three days!

 

As of May 28, Congress.gov didn’t even have a SUMMARY of the bill for the public to read. But you’ll let the Rules Committee decide which amendments can be debated, and then pass the bill unread.

 

I DO NOT CONSENT!

 

For 13 years, Congress rammed through “Intelligence” bills without reading them. Those bills gave us a Surveillance State that violates my privacy.

 

You kowtow to the Administration.

 

But you’re NOT their employee. You work for ME! So…

 

* Demand and support amendments to HR 4681 that restore Fourth Amendment rights.

* And PASS the Read the Bills Act so that you, me, and everyone else has a chance to know what's in the bills!

 

–END OF LETTER–

 

Send your letter using DownsizeDC.org’s Educate the Powerful System.

 

Thank you for your participation and support.
