I&A Concerted Action
Letter Writing for July 1998
 
   

Priority Codes:


         

1. OPPOSE HR 3114 — INCREASED FUNDING OF THE IMF FOR THE ASIAN BAILOUT

 

Key facts: This $18 billion Asian bailout remains an Insider priority — but not much opposition remains in the House. Rep. Ron Paul's HR 3090 would flat out withdraw us from the IMF.

 

Write: [ ] Your Congressman, again, to oppose ALL bailouts and to support HR 3090.

   

2. OPPOSE EFFORTS TO SUBJECT THE U.S. TO AN INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT

 

Key Facts: An International Criminal Court with compulsory jurisdiction over all nations is a key Insider priority. Promoted as a necessity for dealing with global mega-criminals, it poses a a great threat to our Bill-of-Rights freedoms. A treaty conference now under way in Rome will establish such a court. Our job: build Senate opposition to prevent ratification!

 

Write: [ ] Your U.S. Senators in strong opposition to an ICC.

   

3. OPPOSE S 472 WHICH WOULD PROMOTE STATEHOOD FOR PUERTO RICO

 

Key Facts: The House in March approved their version of this bill to put Puerto Rico on a fast track to becoming our 51st state! America doesn't need a new state where 3/4 of its citizens do not understand English (and many don't want to!) -- where half of the people are on food stamps! The Senate may try to sneak in a vote on this before they go on their early-August recess.

 

Write: [ ] Your U.S. Senators in strong opposition to S 472; urge a filibuster if it's brought up.

   

4. OPPOSE HR 1385 and S 1186, THE "CAREERS ACT" (OR "TRAINING PROGRAMS" BILL)

 

Key Facts: This legislation would consolidate a number of federal education programs with the goal of setting up federal guidelines for state programs. The House and Senate versions each passed by wide margins and are now in conference committee to reconcile differences.

 

Write: [ ] Your Congressman in strong opposition to any "Training Programs" bill.

            [ ] Your U.S. Senators in strong opposition to any" Training Programs" bill.

   

5. SUPPORT CONSTITUTIONAL VOTING RECORDS IN THE "CONSERVATIVE INDEX"

 

Key facts: The July 6th issue of The New American includes the third "Conservative Index" on the 105th Congress. Review the voting records of your delegation on the issues covered.

 

Write: [ ] Your Congressman and Senators, tossing roses or brickbats as their CI score dictates.
