Democratic Agenda for 10/8/07I support the Democrats.com Weekly Agenda for 10/8/07:
Join the 86 Members who have signed the Progressive Caucus "Peace Pledge" to oppose any more Iraq funding except to bring our troops safely home before Bush leaves office
Oppose Dick Cheney's insane plan to Bomb Iran by supporting the Byrd Amendment to require Congressional approval of any attack on Iran, and hold Congressional hearings on Cheney's secret Iran warmongering
Pass H.R. 2740 to bring war mercenaries like Blackwater under U.S. law, demand prosecution of Blackwater employees under the Uniform Code of Military Justice as required by the Graham Amendment, and demand prosecution of Halliburton and other contractors who have defrauded U.S. taxpayers out of billions.
Reimpose a strict ban on warrantless wiretapping of American citizens and block amnesty and immunity for telephone companies that illegally spied
Oppose Michael Mukasey for Attorney General because he (a) wants to keep Guantanamo open despite the strong objections of the world (b) allow "enhanced interrogation techniques" which is just Bushspeak for torture, an international war crime, and (c) abused material-witness laws to lock up Muslims without charges
Oppose Hans von Spakovsky for FEC Commissioner because of his key role in illegal voter suppression, disciminatory and illegal voter ID laws, the illegal TX redistricting engineered by Tom DeLay, and the stolen election in Florida
Pass the resolution to condemn Rush Limbaugh for calling troops who are critical of the Iraq Occupation "phony soldiers" and hold Limbaugh accountable by removing his show from Armed Forces Radio
Override Bush's planned veto of the Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP)
Hold White House officials in contempt of Congress for defying subpoenas requiring their sworn testimony and documents. Since Bush's Justice Department refuses to enforce Congressional subpoenas, Congress must use its "inherent contempt" authority to put White House officials in a DC jail until they comply
Investigate major news exposes:
During the horrible week of September 17, 2007, Democratic voters were repeatedly betrayed by the Democratic Senate. They couldn't pass the Dodd bill to restore Habeas Corpus, the Webb Amendment to rest our troops, or the Feingold-Reid Amendment to mostly leave Iraq by June 2008. And then 23 Democrats joined all the Republicans to outrageously attack Moveon.org for a newspaper ad.
Never again! From now on, when Congress is in session, we will publish a Democrats.com Weekly Agenda listing all the actions we want the Democratic Congress to take that week.
Please send our Weekly Agenda to your Representative and Senators each week, and visit this page (http://democrats.com/agenda) to see how many of us sent this agenda to Congress (the thermometer in the upper right corner). Our goal is to send 100,000 agendas to Congress each week - it's ambitious but we have over 300,000 subscribers so it's doable, especially if we all use the "Tell a Friend" box on the petition to spread the word.
Also visit this page for the current status of each issue below. To suggest a new issue, send us an email.
Get your Rapture hats ready, kiddies! The sky is falling, and our wise gift of nuclear winter will propel us all into the loving arms of the all-knowing and all-everywhere G-d.
