I&A Concerted Action
Letter Writing for September 1998

Priority Codes:


1. SUPPORT TAKING A STAND ON AN IMPEACHMENT INVESTIGATION OF BILL CLINTON

Key Facts: Most members of the House have tap danced around whether or not they support an immediate impeachment investigation. It's time to hold their feet to the fire on this issue!

Write, fax or e-mail: [ ] Your Congressman; if he hasn't taken a firm position, pin him down!

[ ] The Editor; enlist your neighbors in this "pin-him-down" campaign.

2.  OPPOSE ANY LEGISLATION GIVING "FAST TRACK" TRADE AGREEMENT AUTHORITY

Key facts: A House vote is likely later this month on legislation to give the President "fast track" authority to negotiate trade agreements. Under "fast track" authority, any agreement could not be amended by Congress and would have to be either accepted or rejected exactly as submitted.

Write, fax, or e-mail: [ ] Your Congressman, opposing ANY "fast track" trade agreement bill.

3. OPPOSE HR 3114, HR 3287, HR 3580 -- IMF FUNDING FOR ASIAN/OTHER BAILOUTS

Key facts: This $18 billion bailout is a top Insider priority -- but opposition is building in the House. (Collapse of the Russian economy, in spite of big IMF funding, is helping to build that opposition.) Ron Paul's HR 3090 would withdraw us from the IMF, thus stopping ALL funding.

Write, fax, or e-mail: [ ] Your Congressman, opposing ALL bailouts, supporting HR 3090.

4. SUPPORT H Con Res 236, A RESOLUTION REASSERTING THE POWERS OF CONGRESS

Key facts: This concurrent resolution expresses the sense of Congress that any Presidential Executive Order that infringes on the legislative powers of Congress or that requires expenditure of Federal funds not appropriated by Congress is advisory only -- unless enacted by Congress as law.

Write, fax, or e-mail: [ ] Your Congressman; ask him to become a co-sponsor of H Con Res 236.

5. OPPOSE S 25 - THE McCAIN-FEINGOLD "CAMPAIGN FINANCE REFORM" BILL

In early August, the House passed its version of the Senate's McCain-Feingold bill which would inject even more federal intrusion into the election process. Although Senate opponents are working to keep it off their agenda, we should still be letting our U.S. Senators know that we want them to oppose S 25 -- with a filibuster, if necessary.

Write, fax, or e-mail: [ ] Your U.S. Senators in strong opposition to S 25.
