From Downsize DC's friend Jerrol LeBaron:
Here are our protest dates for this coming week:
All are 3:30-7:00pm in the Los Angeles area.
Mon: Laurel Canyon Blvd/Ventura Blvd
Tues: Wilshire Blvd/Veteran
Wed: LaBrea Blvd/Beverly Blvd
If you or your friends are around, you are welcome to come and visit.
Passing bills in secret is NOT ACCEPTABLE behavior for ANY politician, especially our members of Congress.
Every year Congress passes nearly 2,000 pages worth of laws without citizen approval. It is un-American and is very far from government of, by and for the American people.
The current political process guarantees, poorly thought out laws, loopholes and bills which favor self-serving special interests and the powerful, rather than the good of all. This is a process which fosters and guarantees corruption in the halls of government.
Congress MUST allow citizens ample time to see the final versions of all bills well before the vote.
It is as simple as that.
Hope to see you and/or your friends there.
