TAKE ACTION: Oppose the Dodd-Frank Financial Overhaul Bill

There is still a chance to stop this Financial Reform debacle, and Liberty Central has uncovered the final text of this bill along with a FAX CONGRESS Take Action program.  You can use their program, or send their sample fax to the House and Senate on you own. The Senate phone and fax numbers are here on page 1, page 2, and page 3; House phone and fax page 1, page 2, and page 3.

The compromise bill now goes to the House and Senate for approval, and on its way to the Obama Triple Crown.  There will be a lot of distractions out there in an attempt to keep your eye off the ball: Kagan hearings, Petraeus hearings, House and Senate vote on the final Financial Reform bill, the Gulf oil disaster, and anything else Mr. Obama can drum up.

Liberty Central (Ginny Thomas) is doing a fantastic job on reporting the truth about this bill, which again, does not apprear to have been read by the representatives voting on it. And that's a disgrace, and unacceptable.

In a perfect world, bi-partisanship is a nice idea, but when a government continues to take more and more control, it’s time to stand up and say enough!

All Republicans (including Brown, Snowe, Collins & Grassley) should be appalled at this supposed “Reform” bill.

1. No regulation for Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae
2. “Too Big to Fail”, more bailouts (ENOUGH!)
3. Treasury Department’s power to seize private property
4. A open line of credit from government to its chosen bank without congressional approval
5. Loss of privacy with a euphemistic Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection

My question to our elected officials is: “Why are you not protecting us from this? Why?”

Please do your job. Protect our country and its citizens!
