Rand Paul Introduces the One Subject at a Time Act

Fantastic news!

Rand Paul has introduced the “One Subject at a Time Act” (OSTA) in the Senate!

This means that we now have the bill introduced in both chambers of Congress, with two co-sponsors in the House.

Let's…

  • Thank Rand Paul for introducing this legislation!
  • Ask our “elected representatives” to co-sponsor these bills

So do this NOW…

  • Go to Rand Paul's Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/SenatorRandPaul. Pick the most recent post, and leave a comment like this, “Thank you Senator Paul for introducing DownsizeDC.org’s 'One Subject at a Time Act' (S.1664) in the Senate.”
  • Call his office and say thank you to the staffer who answers. 202-224-4343

Then do this…

Use our Educate the Powerful System to ask your supposed representatives to also co-sponsor OSTA.

The hardwired letter to Congress for that campaign reads…

I would notice and appreciate your co-sponsorship of the “One Subject at a Time Act” (OSTA), HR 2113 and S 1664.

You can copy or edit the following for your personal comments…

I believe every proposal must stand or fall entirely on its own merits.

Stop passing unpopular bills by combining them with popular measures that are completely unrelated. I consider this practice to be dishonest and criminal.

You can do something to fix this right now. The “One Subject at a Time Act” was introduced by Tom Marino in the House (HR 2113) and Rand Paul in the Senate (S.1664).

I CAN THINK OF NO GOOD REASON WHY YOU WOULD NOT BECOME A CO-SPONSOR TOO.

Please be clear, I DENY MY CONSENT for you to continue combining unrelated legislation. BE RESPONSIBLE. Co-sponsor this legislation.

Can you contribute to help us send releases to as many media outlets as possible? Today, we need to raise at least $1,000, with…

  • At least five new monthly pledgers
  • At least one person contributing $500

  • Please consider making a contribution to help publicize this news.

In summary, we need to thank Rand Paul and send out press releases today, so every dollar counts.

Thanks for your support!
