Urgent Action Needed!
By Perry Willis
Please share with concerned friends . . . Subject: Regulating DownsizeDC.org, Inc. Big special interest lobbies want to regulate citizens' groups like DownsizeDC.org. Several of these groups have been working behind the scenes, in secret, with some of the same politicians who created the incumbent protection law known as the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act. Six of these big lobbying groups published a joint letter on March 7 describing some of the details of this secret legislation. These priveledged insider groups, such as Century 21, have been able to misrepresent this legislation to the media and the public. Opponents of this legislation have been at a disadvantage because we have had no access to the legislation. Now the legislation has finally seen the light of day as bill H.R. 2093. H.R. 2093 is about to be rushed to a vote in the House. It is very clear that there has been a conspiracy to deny you your rights to use groups such as DownsizeDC.org. America's secret government (big special interest organizations) have conspired with elected representatives to silence taxpayers There is no time for detailed analysis or explanation of H.R. 2093. This is what happens when politicians legislate in secret, and then rush to a vote! Suffice it to say that supericial changes have been made in this legislation, compared to earlier versions, to make it look better. But these changes are superficial only. They have raised the threshold for triggering the regulations to $100,000. That makes it look like only big organizations will be regulated, but groups that raise just $100,000 are not large and influential at all. The bottom line . . . DownsizeDC.org will still be regulated! We have defeated similar legislation in the Senate, but now we need to defeat it in the House, or risk losing the battle in Conference Committee, after which the Senate may just rubber-stamp the final bill. We need to flood Congress with opposition. Our standard message on this issue asks the House to strip out the grassroots provisions. Add to this, in your personal comments, your opposition to H.R. 2093 specifically. Tell Congress you object to secret, conspiratorial legislating, as represented by H.R. 2093. Tell them you know H.R. 2093 is a fraud. Time is short, so send your message now! Thank you for being a DC Downsizer. Jim Babka President DownsizeDC.org, Inc.
