Senate Trying to Ram Through Another Bad Bill - SB 3217 Restoring American Financial Stability Act of 2010
Senate Trying to Ram Through Another Bad Bill . . . Surprised? Here's What You Need to Know
Dear Fellow Patriots,
This Friday Senate Bill 3217, also known as the Restoring American Financial Stability Act of 2010, introduced by Democrat Senator Chris Dodd of Connecticut, is scheduled to hit the floor of the US Senate where it must wait 72 hours before it comes up for a full vote. CLICK HERE to read the actual 1,421 page bill.
The vast majority of Tea Party Patriots' Local Coordinators from all over the country agreed on our most recent weekly conference call that this is a bad bill and we oppose it.
In short it grants permanent, unlimited bailout authority to the Federal Reserve. It's like TARP forever without the nasty, unpopular debates and votes in Congress. Beyond that it gives the Fed the power to takeover vaguely defined "nonbank financial companies". And the Fed has the power to decide what constitutes a "nonbank financial company" on a case by case basis.
Here are some links to a few articles that give a bit more insight into this very, very bad piece of legislation which must be stopped:
So, what are we asking you to do?
This includes all political candidates and office holders - your failure to act makes you complicit in this unprecedented action
1.) Please contact your own Senators first and voice your opposition to this bill. If possible, physically go in person to the local home offices of your two Senators and speak to someone there who will take note of your opinion and pass it on. If you're not able to go in person, please call, email, and fax the offices of both Senators from your state. (Find Your Senators by State on the Senate Website)
3.) Write Letters about this issue to your local paper for publication on or before Sunday. Also leave comments on as many news blogs and websites related to this subject as you can find.
4.) Forward this message to as many people as you can and ask them to take these same 4 steps as soon as possible. Use the full power of your circle of influence to move others (at least 1 more person) to take action.
Once again it's up to us, you and your fellow Patriots, to defend America from out of control government.
Thank you for performing this valuable service for your country!
