Will We Face A Vicious Lame Duck? Do What You Can To Make Sure We Don't!

We all heard it. That the Democrats would use the time between the mid-term election on November 2, 2010 and the swearing in of the 112th Congress on January 3, 2011, the so-called lame duck session, to ram through bills the American public does not want.

This is the legislation that is still on the agenda of President Obama, current House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

High on the list is cap and trade and yet another stimulus plan. Let your representatives in Washington know that the lame duck session is not to be used for passing legislation that the American public made clear it does not want, evidenced by the election mandate. Let them know by signing the petition below. Read it, and then sign it at the following link:

Dear Member of Congress,

I continue to hear rumors about a potential "Lame Duck" session that could be held right after the November elections and before the new Congress is sworn-in.

I fear that despite a very different political make-up in Congress, elements of the far Left will view this as their last chance to enact threats to our liberty including:

1. The Cap and Trade Energy Tax Hike
2. Another "Stimulus" Bailout Scheme
3. More Tax Hikes at a Time when we can scarcely afford them
4. Push Card Check through Congress, giving the unions even more power

This would go directly against the will of the people - having had their say in the November Elections - and I urge you to oppose it as the worst kind of political, dirty-trick.

Should a lame duck session surface, I will be watching your vote very closely on cap and trade, additional taxpayer-funded bailouts, any attempts to increase taxes, and any other policy proposals that erode more of our freedoms and expand the reach of government.
